Are your vocabulary lists useful?

WHY YOU NEED TO STOP MAKING "SILENT" VOCABULARY LISTS 

You are a student of Spanish and, almost certainly, you have made vocabulary lists, perhaps you continue to do so. You write them in your notebook (or on your cell phone), translate them into your language, read them aloud, read them in your head, rewrite them over and over again...

...until you memorize them.

New topic, new list, and so on until you can't fit another word in your vocabulary notebook.

These are traditional vocabulary listsare written, silent, and limited. You learn words and expressions, you keep them in your memory for some time, but you do not learn its pronunciation or how they sound in real conversationscan be very helpful to you. useful for reading comprehension and written expression., but they do little to help you understand conversations in Spanish. since it is very difficult for you to identify them when you hear them in conversation.

You probably know that in some online dictionaries, such as for example https://www.wordreference.com/ you can hear how the word you need sounds, but not in expressions or phrases. This way you can learn how a word sounds in isolationbut this is not enough to be able to recognize it when it appears in a real conversationat speed of light natural.

Why? 

Because the sound of words changes when we use them in conversationSome words are joined to others and sound different, some sound better than others due to the speed at which they are spoken, others lose vowels, others consonants, others even syllables!

 

Therefore, we recommend that you learn new vocabulary and expressions. listening in context and at normal speed.

We recommend that you do SOUND VOCABULARY LISTS.
