How to learn common Spanish words fast

The fastest way to learn new vocabulary is with audio material. You can hear the 25 common Spanish words above, and many more, in my Spanish course Learn Spanish At Your Own Pace.

But how do you actually go about learning new words with audio material? Here’s the technique I always recommend to my students:

  • First, listen to the Spanish words without looking at their transcript.
  • Repeat this a couple of times.
  • Then, get the transcript and listen to the recordings while you look at the Spanish words and their translation.
  • Once you’re familiar with all the translations, read out the Spanish words along with the recordings.
  • Then, put away the transcript and say the Spanish words out loud, along with the recordings. Make sure you can think of their translation as you say the words.
  • Say the words in your list out loud, along with the recordings, several times over the next few days and weeks.
  • Regular reviewing is the secret of successful language learning. Go back to the lists of words in your Spanish course regularly, and say them out loud, along with the recordings.

Learning common Spanish words with the help of audio material, rather than from text only, has many advantages: it makes remembering new vocabulary substantially easier, it boosts your listening skills, it improves your pronunciation; and it’s highly motivating and much more fun.
