Dust off a forgotten foreign tongue, debate the best ways to learn another language, pick up some slang in the local lingo, discuss regional dialects... It's all about being multi-lingual, baby.

My GF and I are taking a 6-12 month trip starting in Mexico and working our way south. We are wondering what the best advice would be for brushing up on our spanish. Both of us had high school spanish and that's about it, and that was 7 years ago. I still remember some words/phrases but basically we are both beginners.

Are Spanish I and II courses at a community college good for our purposes? What about classes like "Spanish for Travellers" (which I am hesitant about for no reason)? Private tutors?

If you were me, what would you do?

Muchas gracias amigos....

Any Spanish is better than none, and you can't go wrong by taking courses in community college. Course, you could take some classes in Mexico or Guatemala. I recommend Guatemala for the cheapest and best, BUT, a weeks course somewhere in Mexico couldn't hurt to get you started.

There are schools all over Mexico.
