Learning Spanish: How long (many hours) to learn Spanish

How to learn Spanish fast? How long does it take to learn Spanish? 

These are common questions from students who wish to learn Spanish. You can speak Spanish or any other language at different levels (e.g. beginner, intermediate or advanced level). For instance, a British lawyer will use a more sophisticated language compared to a British child, although both are fluent in English! 

Here's an idea of the minimum hours required to attain different levels of Spanish proficiency. We mention learning hours instead of time frame (weeks, months, etc) as it is more accurate. For instance, a student may take 4 hours/month (if she takes 1h lesson/week) or 56 hours/month (if she takes 14h lesson/week).
