I'm beginning from literally zero in learning Spanish. My native language is English but I'm fluent in French after a years of intensive personal study. I want to know from Spanish learners what they would like any beginner to know early on the learning process. What, when or how do you wish you had learned something? How could you have done things more effectively? Please note that I already know the value of practicing speaking very early. That's one advice people give a lot and I can truly relate. In this case I'm looking other very practical tips.
Gracias de antemano por su ayuda! (I googled this, though)
