Good course to learn spanish?

I'm new here and would like some help to start learning spanish.
I've been invited to Spain and it's possible I will move there for work, so I'd like to know what's a good course to learn spanish, at least the basic spanish and then get a bit more advanced.

Any help would be appreciated

For peninsular Spanish I would recommend "Assimil Spanish with Ease".

One thing I like about Assimil is that the audio is all in the target language. If you do the course as recommended by the publisher, you will have a very solid grounding in the language, or in other words, a good place to start with native materials.

Good luck
I would be grateful if you would correct my errors.

Two things I've used and been very happy with (besides this forum!) are:
- Rosetta Stone software
- "Practice Makes Perfect" Spanish workbooks
- Lou Ann, de Washington, DC, USA
Específicamente quiero recibir ayuda con el español de latinoamerica. ¡Muchísimas gracias!

Apart from the course you may find useful the other solution. One of best ways of learning the 2nd language is to find a person who is a native of this language and is interested in learning your native language. Then - just talk/mail/chat with her/him. You may use skype or any other communicator.

When you enter in google 'language exchange' you will find a lot of portals which make finding of those persons easily.

Good luck

If you understand french and want a lot of practice I use la grammaire espagnole a través de los ejercicios, this is purely grammar. But very good up-to-date vocabulary

Also you can read each post wrote in Spanish here in the website.
It could be of great practice for you.
