Enjoy learning Spanish!
For the first lesson we focus on learning some of the most basic vocabulary and expressions.
Find a friend or parent and put together some of the phrases to form a little conversation. Don’t forget to use the words wherever you can until you are completely comfortable with them. For fun try using them when talking on the phone with family members or around the dinner table.
To get you started with colors in Spanish we give you 9 basic and common colors. Some countries have different names for the basic colors such as ‘rosa’ for pink or ‘violeta’ for purple. Don’t worry so much about that yet as we’ll give you those names later. For now just concentrate learning these basic colors in Spanish.
9 basic shapes in Spanish will help to get you started. Listen to the Spanish name by clicking on the shape and then practise saying the name out loud. Some names can be tricky so you might need to listen to the names a number of times until you’ve got it just right.
Search for objects in the classroom or around the house and name the shape in Spanish.
Your first step in counting to 100 in Spanish begins here. Make sure you listen and practise saying these numbers as they will come in handy in the next section.
You can click on each number to listen to it’s pronunciation or click on the button and listen to all of them.
Wow! We give you a lot of Spanish phrases on this page! Don’t worry though, they are not that hard to remember. It might be best to concentrate on a few at a time.
Start by learning the Spanish phrases that talk about your name. You’ll need a partner to practise. Ask them what their name is in Spanish and have them answer. Reverse and have the other person ask you what your name is.
Move on next to talk about your age. Learn how to ask someone how old they are and then have them ask you. If you are not sure of numbers in Spanish you’ll want to go back and learn to count to ten in Spanish.
Lastly try talking about where you are from in Spanish. Don’t forget to change the name of the city or country with the name or your city or country.
Here you will find the first 5 pages of your very own Spanish vocabulary book. By the end of lesson 10 you’ll have 50 pages full of Spanish vocabulary for you to practise and enjoy. Each page is presented with the same vocabulary as the lesson and is illustrated. They are in PDF format so make sure your Adobe reader is up-to-date.
