A video from the Advanced Spanish Vocabulary Course
*Essential Spanish words on useful everyday topics*
*Build your Spanish vocabulary with Laura*
This is a new advanced Spanish lesson from the Spanish Vocabulary Course. In this video you will learn lots of useful Spanish books vocabulary.
You will practice the Spanish books vocabulary for such things as “novel”, “chapter”, “index”, “front cover”, “best seller” and “paperback”. There are three Spanish lessons in total on this subject. The other two lessons are at beginner and intermediate levels with slightly more common Spanish words.
Reading in Spanish is such an important skill when learning the language and if you love books and love reading it makes everything so much easier. If you can find a book to read in Spanish that you genuinely find interesting then you are on your way to making big improvements. The key to learning Spanish, and any other foreign language for that matter, is to practice with the language every day and to genuinely enjoy your time doing it. If you are not properly interested, then things will not go in or stick. Try to find a book in Spanish that you really want to read and read it little and often.
If you are not a fan of reading books or just don’t have the time, then try to start reading your internet pages in Spanish. Try to get into the habit of reading a Spanish newspaper online every day to catch up on the news and whenever possible choose the Spanish language version option for other websites you usually use.
