Learn a language that you actually love.
Practice makes perfect so speak to natives and don't be too worried about the mistakes that you might make while talking to them; they might correct you, and this will stick to your mind,
listen to music in that language,
watch movies, shows or news in that language,
read something that interests you in that language
because this motivates you to keep reading and find out new vocab,
write to people who speak the language so you learn from your mistakes.
Learn a little about the culture, because some expressions you might not understand without understanding the culture.
Maybe if you have the ability, you can travel to the country that speaks the language and this will help you learn some uncommon slangs as well.1

Loan or buy Spanish spoken movies on DVD , and look at them with the Spanish subtitles (for the deaf).
Some TV chains in Spanish can furnish Spanish subtitles too.
Frequent native Spanish speakers.
Readd a lot in Spanish.1
