Pre-Intermediate Spanish Lesson 68: In the house Spanish vocabulary & verbs (Part 1)
In this Spanish lesson we are going to learn some useful House vocabulary in Spanish and in the next lesson we will see some useful Spanish verbs related to The House. When you are learning Spanish it is always vital to have a good balance of key grammar knowledge and vocabulary and expressions. If you only ever learn lots of individual Spanish words you will only ever be able to talk in broken sentences and if you only ever concentrate on learning Spanish grammar you will constantly be reaching for your Spanish dictionary. In this video lesson we will highlight some Spanish vocabulary connected to the house and I recommend that you place sticky labels around your own house with the Spanish names for things such electrical socket, coffee maker or remote control. That way you will be studying constantly without even realising. Every time you open a drawer or turn on the TV you will be reminded of the Spanish vocabulary. I used to do the same thing in my own house with English words on sticky labels stuck absolutely everywhere and it really does work. Try also to use this new Spanish vocabulary in lots of pratice written sentences using the grammar structures you have already learned.
