Learning vocabulary is a fundamental part of learning Spanish. The more Spanish words a child knows, the more he or she will be able to understand what they hear and the better they will be able to say what they want to when speaking.
Below are the guidelines we used to develop the Spanish vocabulary lessons for children:
Teach new words as part of a meaningful subject-matter lesson and provide games and fun quizzes which require students to use the new words
Ensure that students hear the correct pronunciation of the word - the syllable structure and stress pattern of the word assists the child to remember the word
Teach related words in groups to help students understand how words are interrelated
Provide many examples of use. Require the child to correctly utilize the word in games and quizzes
Connect new vocabulary words to something with which the children are already familiar
Provide Spanish games and Spanish quizzes which give children opportunities to paraphrase the definition of a new word so that
they can identify the main concept associated with the word
Give children the opportunity to acquire new vocabulary using a variety of learning modalities or formats that actively engage them in the learning process
While studying Spanish, a child will hear or read many new Spanish words. A child can’t possibly learn all these new words the first time they hear them, this is why repetition is so important. Our Spanish lessons for children are designed specifically for the way children learn.

Our Spanish lessons use repetition so that a child will read or hear the words again and again
Our Spanish lessons present the words that children will want to use often
