things to do in your target language for studying

  • write down sentences/words & make sure you say them out loud

  • watch a show and repeat what you hear out loud
  • listen to music and translate parts of the lyrics
  • narrate your actions out loud
  • find a friend to practice speaking or texting with
  • try to incorporate new vocabulary as much as you can in your sentences
  • write journal entries everyday (this especially helps if you’re struggling with immersing yourself)
  • while watching shows, actively write down new words that you find interesting
  • learn vocab of objects, places, emotions, people, etc. around you (aka vocab that you will use the most often in daily life)
  • learn synonyms of words that you already know
  • create a small, achievable goal to complete everyday (ex. learn one new word, write 3-5 sentences, read lyrics or a small paragraph out loud)
  • change one of your app’s language settings; don’t change your whole phone’s language, it’ll stress you out even more (coming from experience). baby steps!
  • follow influencers on social media that are native speakers (captions in their posts are good for learning new vocab)
  • be confident! it’s okay to struggle, you’re still learning :)

Hi, here I wrote down some more Spanish vocabulary I want to remember. The last days, I wasn’t very productive, because I didn’t feel like doing work in the morning and later, there was pretty much no time. But now I’m back to doing something every day and I’m very glad about that.

I hope you’re doing well :)

Hi, today I started practicing the Spanish vocabulary from the past year. I’m doing this because I’m pretty sure I forgot a lot and I also skipped some pages. So now is the right time to refresh my knowledge. What I did, I basically just wrote all the vocabulary down and the translations next to it. On the loose paper I made a dot so I can see which ones I knew and which ones I didn’t. In the notebook I’ll probably do that tomorrow. I also watched two Spanish YouTube videos today and I feel like I’m already understanding more than a few weeks ago. I’m very happy about that.

I hope you’re having a nice day :)

Here is masterlist for Spanish on both Lingodeer and Duolingo, once I finish posting a section I will link all of the lessons here. :)

HEADSUP: This collection does not include ALL of the notes from Duolingo or Lingodeer, I simply used it as review for small things to remember. (Mostly accents and gender of nouns…)

What type of a learner are you?

I’ve began working on expanding my Spanish vocabulary. I’ve downloaded a very helpful flashcard app, that goes together with my vocab book although to me it is only good for self-checking. In order to memorize anything I need to write it down, not type but actually write. I write, then I saw aloud, then I read and repeat until I memorize. 

So I got this tiny flashcards set to write words I am going to learn. I plan to have a couple different sets, one for verbs, one for adjective and one for nouns. Then I will make a frequency one. That’s the plan.

LOS DÍAS DE LA SEMANA (The days of the week)

These are the seven days of the week in Spanish.

  • From lunes to viernes, we say it is entre semana, which means weekdays.
  • Sábado and domingo are the weekend, right? In Spanish it’s called fin de semana, which could be literally translated as “end of week”.

IMPORTANT: In Spanish we don’t always use capital letters to write the days of the week, only when they are at the beginning of the sentence.

If you like this post, you can also follow me on instagram, where I will post more of these, plus I have videos practicing pronunciation and more!
