Learning spanish

I’d like to learn Spanish. How should I do it. I would like to bbe modestly fluent before summer, as I hope to visit. What method should I use to learn

some useful books I have learned:

  • Spanish for dummies;
  • Spanish language travel guide (don’t know precise title; very practical things like ordering stuff in a restaurant, or introducing yourself).

If you have some more time you might also take advantage of spanish songs you like and search the internet for lyrics + translations.
