The glue is the grammar and the mumble-jumble are all the Spanish words going around in your head or lists of words you are trying to learn. For an adult learner the main goal is to start communicating and trying a proactive approach to learning.
So which is first the grammar or the vocabulary ?
To make learning enjoyable we need to express and interact first, that's what makes it all worthwhile. The grammar, verb tenses etc. can be taken in stages. So try to express a basic sentence in Spanish and your confidence level will be boosted. When enjoy expressing and someone understands what we want to say, then "poco a poco" we can have a stab at using the right verb tense !
