I would not translate 语言 as language here at all. It sounds forced. Study is also a bad choice of word here. In fact, the whole English sentence sounds unnatural to me. Aside from learning to use words to express one's thoughts and feelings, one must also learn to express oneself without using words. Words here may refer only to spoken words, but ...

In Chinese when you see "精神" modifying nouns to form phrases such as "精神需要" and "精神文明", it just means the opposite side of their material counterpart such as "物质需要" and "物质文明". So your translation of "spiritual" is correct, but you need to understand it from a different point of view as I stated above.

I found this post, "What popular science fiction TV shows are available with Chinese dubbing?", which provides links to various services. I am not advocating these services as most of them are illegal, however it will provide you with good information and many examples of movies and series that have been dubbed. Examples are verycd.com which now no longer ...

Anna mei Banfa! (an early level 2 reader) may be excruciatingly repetitious, but it's a good way to pound those most frequent characters into your head. It's used in high school classes in the US.
