The key for Beginners learning Spanish:

Practice all the time!

 

The best thing about making your mind think of questions

and sentences that you would use in a specific scenario

while visiting a Spanish speaking country,

 

is having an opportunity to realize the Spanish words or

Spanish phrases that you need to learn in order to

communicate effectively and get the results you want.

  

 at the supermarket - vegetables

 

 

For example, next time you go buy groceries at the store;

think of the questions you might to ask, think of the kinds

of products that you would purchase if you were on a trip

(milk, butter, beer, apples?).

 

It is a great opportunity to step out of your comfort zone

and realize the things that should be learned first. There

is no point in spending six months studying advanced

grammar structures if you are unable to go to a store

and buy vegetables without a problem.

 

 

If you think about it, learning through phrases is one of

the most natural ways of acquiring conversational

fluency in language; it is basically the same way you

learn how to speak English in the first place during

your first years.

 

In other words, is a more natural approach that focuses

on useful things and getting results, not just learning

Spanish grammar.

 

 

Keep having fun!

Learning a wide variety of Spanish words according to a

specific context is a great way to acquire new Spanish

vocabulary that is useful to our everyday lives, which

coincidentally is one of the best ways to remember new

words when learning Spanish for beginners.

 

By using these words in any context that is familiar to us,

remembering them will be much easier because we get

to see, smell and touch many of the things associated

with these new words (and those multi-sensorial mental

associations are much stronger).

 

Next time you go to a supermarket (even if it is at home

and nobody speaks Spanish) try to think of the questions

you would ask in order to buy all the things you need.

 

By forcing yourself to ask questions that include new

Spanish vocabulary words (even if this happens in

your mind), you will realize which Spanish words

should be the next on your study list.

 

 

Make sure you bring a little notepad with you and make

notes as you realize which are the words and phrases in

Spanish you need to learn next.
