If you're starting to learn a new language, it's helpful to have some basic vocabulary memorised so that you can chat about daily life. The easiest place to start is with the "things" that are most relevant to your lifestyle. Here's a list of cosas en espanol to get you started. Not all of these words will be useful to you - for example, if you don't have kids you may not need to know how to say things about child care - but it's a great way to beef up your conversational Spanish and recognise any areas where your knowledge is lacking.
As well as the basic vocabulary, this article also contains some useful food and drink phrases and some common workplace vocabulary. There are also some tips on how to pronounce these words correctly. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask - we're always happy to help!
