A great way to memorize new Spanish vocabulary and verbs is with flash cards. As you learn new words and Spanish verbs, create a flash card for them. And try practicing both ways – meaning, read in English and guess at the Spanish translation, and also read in Spanish and guess at its meaning in English.
The great thing about flash cards is that you can take them with you wherever you go. While you’re waiting at the doctor’s office, or trying to kill time on your flight.
What I like to do is go through a set of flash cards until I get everyone correct from top to bottom without one error. If I make an error, then I restart from the beginning. This is really helpful because it promotes repetition.
Try to learn in groups of 10-20 words/phrases. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself or become frustrated by not being able to get through all 10-20 flash cards without an error.
Remember, always keep things reasonable, don’t overdue it and have fun! That’s what learning Spanish should be about! 🙂
