Start from the basics, but do not forget to focus on every skill you have to develop. For example: Grammar:what makes spanish grammar different from english grammar?. Writing: the Abc, punctuations, etc. Prounciation: identify the different sounds of every vowel and consonant, and how your tongue and facial muscles should interact together in order to articulate them. Reading: Get a book in spanish of any topic you think is interesting, then start reading the first chapter and highlight every word you do not understand, at the end of the chapter, look for those words in the dictionary and write their meaning below them, then start reading that chapter again. Listening: Look for cartoons in spanish or you can listen to songs in spanish, Cri Cri´s music is good and clear for spanish students. Vocabulary: Just keep a record in a notebook of every word you do not understand and write their meanings. Try to create sentences using those words.

 

This is just a basic idea of what is essencial for someone whose native language is not Spanish. You will get used to the language as long as you practice it constantly.

 

If you are interested on taking classes, I invite you to take a look at my course "start learning Spanish: develop your conversational skills!"

 

Have a nice day! :)

I would give livemocha.com a try.  There are various levels.  It would be a nice supplement if you are also taking a class.

I liked Coffee Break Spanish when I started. After you finish it, they have Showtime Spanish. http://radiolingua.com/shows/spanish/coffee-break-spanish/

I think you need to start by the very beginning, with some phrases for example: Hola, ¿Como estas?, ¿Cual es tu nombre?, ¿Cuantos años tienes? So in order to get a lot of common phrases it is a good idea to buy a phrasebook such as a lonely planet phrasebook, or something like that and If you can afford a phrasebook with audio is better, I suggest you to focus in a particular accent, You need to choose what kind of accent do you like (Latin American or from Spain) I am from latin America but It is easier to find material in spanish from Spain. Another good resources for a very beginner are Michel Thomas or Assimil. Learn with your ears is better.
