Today we continue our Spanish Vocabulary Video Course with a beginner level Spanish video highlighting Environmental vocabulary in Spanish.
In this video we learn how to correctly pronounce the vocabulary in Spanish for such things as “drought”, “rubbish/garbage”, “conservation”, “to become extinct”, and “pollution”. There will be two more videos in this series, at intermediate and advanced levels with much more Environmental vocabulary in Spanish.
Lack of vocabulary in Spanish is probably the one biggest thing that holds my students back with speaking Spanish fluently. If you are lucky enough to have Spanish friends or work colleagues, or if you live in or near a Spanish speaking neighbourhood, your task is much easier. But if you live completely separate to a Spanish speaking environment you will for sure struggle to build your repertoire of Spanish vocabulary.
I very much hope that this course is helping you learn and remember more vocabulary in Spanish, but I also strongly recommend that you start reading more and more often in Spanish and push yourself to watch more Spanish films and TV. There is so much material at your finger tips via the internet and it is the best way to compensate for the lack of Spanish stimulus around you in everyday life.
