Finally, enough! Time to learn Spanish. The neighbors speak it, friends speak Spanish at home and from time to time, it's useful to know a few sentences. I'm always happy with the Pimsleur method --the way they go back and bring up older material to refresh your memory and the method to have you think "out loud" to figure out new ways of putting the words together works for me. As the sections get more advanced, the speed of the speakers increases subtly, and the instructions are given in Spanish, not English, so you get used to hearing the Spanish spoken to you.
By the end of 30 lessons, you really don't know much more than getting around, making arrangements, setting appointments, telling time, counting money and asking simple questions. But it's enough for convenience for a vacation. To really be fluent, you need much more than this, plus practice (with a native speaker and preferably in country) and also a book on Spanish idioms, because Spanish is a language (like French) with curious phrases such as "he has no grandmother" that really mean "he's a boor" and not the literal meaning you'd think. And Spanish requires the niceties and polite little phrases that grease social interaction, more than you'd suspect. But for a start, these thirty lessons are fun and you'll be able to watch La Copa Mundial Futbol which is EVER so much better on the Spanish-language sports cable station. GOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!
