Spanish Vocabulary Words
Increasing the number of Spanish vocabulary words that you know isn’t as hard as you think. With a little time and effort you can learn Spanish and hold your own in a Spanish conversation. By developing a plan you will be able to effectively increase the number of Spanish words you know. Your plan does not need to be complex. In fact just follow these three steps to add to your vocabulary, and begin speaking Spanish without wasting too much time and energy.
Learning Spanish wordsis largely a memorization exercise. By taking advantage of tools such as flashcards and other memory devices you can build up your vocabulary quickly. Group words into different subjects to make them easier for you to remember. Your first group of subjects should be simple and can include topics like color, numbers, letters, animals, places, and common household items. A separate grouping for adjectives, verbs, and words and symbols that denote tense and Spanish accents should also be included early on. These words will be particularly important because you will need them to move on to your next step.
After you’ve got a large group of different types of words memorized the next step is to begin putting these words together to form short Spanish phrases. At this point you will be able to have small basic Spanish conversations. The basic Spanish words you learned, along with the verbs and adjectives, should allow you to start easy conversations or reply to others. It is at this point that you can honestly say that you know how to speak Spanish. However, there is a third point that you will reach after this, where you will know that you not only know the Spanish language, but that you can speak it fluently.
You will know recognize that you know how to speak Spanish fluently once you are able to turn those short, simple Spanish words and phrases into long involved conversations with native speakers. You will be able to initiate any type of discussion, and you should have no difficulty understanding them. You will rarely need to refer to your Spanish dictionary and other students will begin asking you for help. At this point you will look fondly back on your studies and remember the days when you were just building up your vocabulary and learning new words. Now you know Spanish and all it took was a well thought out plan.
