Spanish Vocabulary

Find topics in top menu.

Vocabulary words are the building blocks of communication. As you progress, you will want to expand your vocabulary in areas that are of interest to you. But, beware!

Don’t waste your time.

Too many beginning courses bombard you with long lists of Spanish vocabulary words to memorize. For most people, this is counter-productive because you won’t even be using many of these words—and so you will eventually just forget them anyway.

Less is more!

With Camino del éxito we purposely keep the number of vocabulary words to a minimum. The words that are used are repeated over and over throughout the course, so you really learn them well, and they are words that you will find yourself using every day.

You choose.

Once you have learned the basics, will want to expand your Spanish vocabulary in areas that are of interest to you. Maybe you work in health care—you’ll be interested in medical and anatomical terms. If you’re into sports, then you will find a whole different set of words to be the most useful.

Free or Premium

This vocabulary section is organized by topic, and each topic has a “free” version and a “premium” version. They both have the same exercises and learning activities. The difference is that the premium version has more words – twice as many!

Make your own flashcards!

Truth be told, the simple 3X5 flashcard that you make yourself is your most powerful tool for learning new Spanish vocabulary. The reason is simple: you can always carry a few flashcards with you, and so you can turn what would otherwise be wasted time (standing in line, stuck in traffic, etc.) into productive study time. Even if all you have is 2 minutes, that’s enough time to review a few flashcards.
