La palabra del día – Spanish word of the day

In our section “Spanish word of the day,” we have a new design just to help you understand and learn more Spanish every day!

We create a new format that contains the Spanish word, and an expression that uses the Spanish word, with sound buttons and a game!

Yes, a game that divides the word in syllables and the expression in words, and you need to arrange the syllables to build the word and organize the words to fix the expression! That will be truly fun and will help you to learn more Spanish every day.

The pronunciation is very important in a language, for that we invite you to repeat the word and the expression multiple times, this practice benefit you to understand the concept of the word and familiarized with the sounds of each syllable.

In Spanish, the syllables don’t change the sounds! that makes the Spanish pronunciation easier.

Using our “Spanish word of the day” will help you learn one word every day and will enrich your Spanish vocabulary.

Simple words…

Simple expressions are for example: “Hi how are you?” (Hola, cómo estás?), or “Help me please!” (Ayúdame por favor) and words that you can combine with another to make a really powerful sentence, for example: “I want” (Yo quiero), or  “I like” (Me gusta…), can be really helpful if you plan to travel to a native Spanish speaking country. Moreover, maybe why not being able to interact with some of your Spanish speaker’s friends that have difficulty to speak English or that are learning English.

Last time when I travel to Colombia with our kids, I need to do some shopping and my kids need to be with grandma for a few hours, but grandma doesn’t speak English, so I teach my big son some important words that can help to communicate with grandma.

The most useful word was “quiero”, because he said to grandma… “quiero…” and he takes her hand and shows her what he wants. So grandma understands what he wants, in that way they can begin communicate and interchange some words.

Here is a list of some expressions you can learn, or teach your kids that can help in any situation.

Click on the button to listen the pronunciation:

Hola, Buenos días – (Hi, Good morning) – hola buenos dias

Hasta  luego – (Goodbye) – hasta luego

Dónde está el baño? – (Where is the bathroom?) –donde esta el baño

Dónde hay un teléfono? – (Where is the phone?) – donde hay un telefono

Necesito ayuda! – (I need help!) – necesito ayuda

Quiero… (agua, dormir, jugar, comer, etc…) – (I want…water,  to sleep, to play, to eat, etc…) –

quiero agua

quiero dormir

quiero jugar

quiero comer

Por favor – (please) – por favor

Quieto! – (don’t move!) – quieto

Dame … (la bolsa, los zapatos, la chaqueta) – (give me… the bag, the shoes, the jacket) –

dame la bolsa

dame los zapatos

dame la chaqueta

Vamos! – (Let’s go!) – vamos

The most important part when you don’t know a language is a practice, and don’t think that you will do wrong, take the risk! be confident that you will do good, and the others persons will not be strangers to you.

Don’t forget learn something new every day!

Crear Frases Tontas – Build Silly Sentences

¿Crear frases tontas? No suena muy bien, mas sin embargo es divertido ver como combinando cuatro palabras podemos crear frases.

Usando el “¿quién?” “¿qué?” “¿cuándo?” y “¿dónde?” podemos construir bastantes frases que nos ayudan a aprender el español, a usar nuestra imaginación y a divertirnos.

Adicionalmente podemos utilizar este ejercicio como un ejercicio didáctico, puedes preguntar a los niños: ¿Quién desarrolla la acción en la frase?, ¿qué acción está realizando?, ¿dónde realiza esa acción y cuándo la realiza? Vas a ver todas las frases que los pequeños pueden crear y la forma en cómo van a interpretar cada una.

Aprender usando la imaginación es una característica humana; tratar de decir y crear frases, escribirlas e intuir las diferentes acciones, desarrolla la creatividad y nos entretiene.

Silly sentences –

Observemos y analicemos la frase:

“mi vecino lee un libro temprano en la mañana en el castillo”

Podemos cerrar los ojos e imaginar a un hombre leyendo el libro en la mañana, tomando un rico café, y que mejor que en un castillo muy lejano… etc.

Mientras sea posible, debemos tratar de aprender y de pensar con mucha imaginación. Como si estuviésemos viendo un programa en la televisión, o una película en el cine, o una obra de teatro divertida y con muchos colores. Aunque estoy convencida de que el aprendizaje de un lenguaje se logra con mucha repetición y practica, es importante en nuestro diario vivir usar nuestra imaginación.

_________________________________________________________

Let’s build silly phrases? MMM… That doesn’t sound too good. Well it might sound more interesting if you are able to combine four different words and create our silly phrase.

Using who, what, when and where, we can build a bunch of phrases that can help us learns Spanish, and uses our imagination to have a good time!

Additionally we can use this lesson to ask the children questions: Who develops the action of the phrase? What are they doing? Where and when does the action occur?  You will see that all the phrases that the little ones create are easy to understand.

Learning using your imagination is a human characteristic; trying to create silly phrases, writing them down and combining the different words, develops the creativity of our mind and helps us retain more of the material.

For example let’s look at and analyze this phrase:

“My neighbor reads a book, early in the morning in the castle”

Let’s see how a single phrase creates a whole story. We can close our eyes and imagine the man reading the book very early in the morning, with a delicious coffee, and, even better, in a far away castle.

A whole story in a simple phrase! So use all the time you have, to learn and think, with a lot of imagination. Just like watching a movie, or TV. Although we are really convinced that learning a new language takes a lot of practice, is important to incorporate imagination to our early learning.

La palabra del día – Spanish Word of the day.

Te invitamos a aprender una palabra nueva en español todos los días!

A comienzos del año 2009, comenzamos una sección que llamamos “La palabra del día” y diariamente hemos alimentado esa sección con una nueva palabra,  hoy existen tal vez  unas 760 palabras!

Aquí vas a encontrar la palabra nueva, la traducción de esa palabra en inglés, una fotografía alusiva a esa palabra, una frase en la que se usa esa palabra, y la pronunciación en Español tanto de la palabra como de la frase.

Todos usamos diferentes estrategias para aprender un idioma, personalmente creo que es una buena estrategia usar el método de repetición. Si repetimos y repetimos una palabra a diario, finalmente vamos a aprender esa palabra, y la vamos a poder usarla sin dificultad.

En el menú de “La palabra del día” encontramos tres opciones (buttons) que nos ayudan a ese aprendizaje, la primera opción es dada por el botón de archivo, aquí vas a encontrar la lista de todas las palabras que han sido publicadas desde un comienzo. La segunda opción es la flecha que te lleva a la palabra del día anterior o del día siguiente, y con la tercera opción vas a escuchar la pronunciación en Español, tanto de la palabra, como de la frase.

Si escuchamos, repetimos lo escuchado, pronunciamos nuevamente la palabra y la oración, y finalmente escribimos lo aprendido, vamos a reforzar nuestro conocimiento en el Español y lo más importante, vamos a aprender algo nuevo todos los días!

We invite you to learn a new Spanish word everyday!

At the beginning of 2009, Online free Spanish start a new session call “the word of the day “and everyday day since that we have overgrowth this session adding a new word every day. As of today we have over 760 words!

Here you are going to find a new word everyday with the translation to the English language, a picture representing the word, and a phrase where you can see how to use the word. In addition, we offer a sound button were you can listen to the pronunciation of the word and the phrase.

Everybody uses different strategies to learn a new language; I personally recommend the repetition mode. If we are constantly repeating a new word every day, we are going to be able to learn it. In addition be able to use it without difficulty.

In the menu bar, you are going to find a link named “la palabra del dia”. In this area you can find three different options, they are going to help you with this new type of learning. The first option is called archive button or in Spanish “archivo”, this section offers the list of all the words that have been added since the beginning. The second option is that arrow key, this key helps you go to the next day word, and come back to the day before word. Finally the third option is the sound button; here you can hear the Spanish pronunciation of the word and the phrase of the example.

Repeat! Repeat while you hear! Pronounce the word and the phrase as much as you can. Finally write what you learn and practice as much as you can. And do not forget that with this method you can learn something new every day!
