If you’ve ever spent any time trying to learn Spanish vocabulary, you’ll know what a frustrating process it can be. Words which you think you’ve memorised disappear, and some words don’t even stick in the first place! Here are a few tips to help you remember:
Develop your own learning process
Everyone learns in different ways. You might have a more visual memory and will remember better how the word looks, or you might remember it better by its sound. Either way, try to notice why certain words stick, and what you did differently to remember that word.
Learn in context
You’re far more likely to retain a word if you notice it casually, rather than cramming in a vocabulary list. Try to get your new vocab from genuine Spanish articles or TV, and if you do learn from a vocab list, try to provide your own context. Giving the word extra meaning this way will help you remember it.
