Getting Better spanish  in your class, you need to first be aware that there are three distinct areas that you will need to work on: grammar, vocabulary and oral proficiency. In our wiracocha spanish school, we work a lot in those themes.

Getting Better spanish: Grammar

We have over 100 separate grammar topics on our website. Study each topic before it is covered in class, and do the “free” activities. Then, after the classroom discussion, do the “premium” activities to cement what you have learned into your long-term memory, so that you don’t forget it before the test.

Getting Better spanish: Vocabulary

Learning vocabulary is a very important part of learning a language. The more words you know, the more you will be able to understand what you hear and read; and the better you will be able to say what you want to when speaking or writing.

Every day you hear or read many new English words. You also find them in your dictionary when you are translating from your own language. You can’t possibly learn all these new words, so your first problem is to decide which ones to concentrate on. Here are some suggestions:

  • learn the words that are important to the subjects you are studying
  • learn the words that you read or hear again and again
  • learn the words that you know you will often want to use yourself
  • do not learn words that are rare or not useful (your teacher can help you with this)

Getting Better spanish: Oral Proficiency

There is only one way to improve your oral proficiency: you must practice speaking out loud and at normal conversational volume!, Something that every student needs is confidence that he/she has reasonably good pronunciation.
