Learning Spanish words in the most efficient way possible....

Memory masters have taught us the secrets so that learning Spanish words has never been easier.

The techniques are easy, fun. Even kids can do it. And of course adults, provided they enjoy having a laugh while they learn 200 words a day or more of Spanish.

It is as easy as just looking at cartoons.

The techniques have been put together in a comprehensive learning and testing programme that anyone can use.

The key to learning Spanish words rapidly is the visualizing of goofy scenes that one associates with the word one is trying to learn.

Learning Spanish words the traditional way

In the past most Spanish teachers have not treated vocabulary learning as a separate discipline, but almost as an add-on.

  • Generally vocab has been taught in the context of a lesson, which is fine, but slow.

  • or by giving the students a big long list after a lesson, and getting to learn by repetition and rote. Again slow and worse still, BORING!

It is this more than anything that deters language students from continuing with their studies.

And generally if the student does not get to put the words in to practice they are soon lost, like most school and university learning!

Why do students generally forget Spanish words they learn

Unless they go and use their words fairly soon, the learning is wasted.

The main reason that words are lost are:

  • They have not attached a Memory Trigger to the word when learning it. There is nothing memorable that the brain can hook on to.

    Most courses do not teach you with a Memory Trigger. .... in any subject.

    The brain remembers best when there is some significant event, vivid thing associated with the thing. The more senses involved in the memory the effective the memory retention and your ability to recall it at the right time.

  • The student does not efficiently revise at the correct time intervals.

    Is the software you are using programmed to prompt you at the scientifically researched optimum revision times.

  • The student does not get the chance to put it in to regular practice.

Should one learn grammar first or Spanish vocab

I argue that because the speed of acquisition is now so fast, using the right software and techniques the student is best to grab 1,000 of the most common words fast, which can be achieved in less than a week of fun study.

Better still grab 2,000 words.

From there you have such a powerful base knowledge you can build the conversation, grammar and sentences more quickly.

Many of the words you will learn form 'base words' or 'root words' on to which can be tacked prefixes and suffixes to transform the word into another.

So if you know a 'root word' you can quickly understand, decipher or nearly understand another similar that has used the 'root word' as its base.

With 1,000 words (and better still 2,000) you will be able to 'crawl-read' a Spanish newspaper, and have a good basic understanding of masses of information.

Compare this with the amount of grammar you can learn in the same time.

You can achieve far more COMMUNICATION with 1,000 base Spanish words and Spanish phrases, than with the complete understanding of 20 concepts of grammar!

So I recommend to you to:

Learn 1,000 Spanish words first - fast! Then progress on to grammar, and more vocabulary!
