Hi, Spanish newbie

Hi, I'm jason and I want to learn spanish. My junior year of high school, I was in spanish for about 2 months. I then began online classes which I don't recall offering a spanish class. I would like to finish learning the language, as I hardly learned anything in those two months.

Where do I start?

In order to learn Spanish well, you'll need to devote a lot of time and energy to it. You'll need to get a book (or two), preferably with some audio help. I understand that there are online courses, but I don't know if they're any better than studying from a book with audio help.
If you know someone who speaks Spanish natively, they'll be able to help you say things correctly, but probably won't be able to explain the grammar. You can ask those questions here.
Look around the forums to see what others are asking. You'll stumble where we have.
There are no shortcuts. Plan on lots of time and patience.

Hey dude,
Welcome to the forums. I'm new here, but I can already tell that this forum is a great resource for Spanish learning. Like Rusty said a couple of books would be a good idea, and I would also definitely recommend trying to spend as much time around Spanish speakers as possible. I've learned much of what I know this way. It can really be helpful to hear some of the things that you are studying in conversation. You can also try Spanish literature and media.
Well anyway, buena suerte and see you around.
