The easiest way to add more than 30,000 words to your Spanish vocabulary!
You know the basics of Spanish, but if you really want to develop your language skills, you need to have a larger cache of Spanish words that you are comfortable using in conversation or in writing. The Big Red Book of Spanish Vocabulary is a remarkably effective tool that will help you add thousands of words to your Spanish repertoire by organizing them into logical groupings, making memorization a snap.
The 30,000 Spanish vocabulary terms are divided into the following sections:
- Cognates: These words are similar in Spanish and English, making them the easiest to learn. This section contains 14,000 cognates thematically arranged into twenty key topics.
- Root families: Another easy way to expand your vocabulary is to become familiar with related word families that have the same root. This section contains 14,000 terms grouped into 2,200 root categories.
- Suffixes: More than most languages, Spanish relies on suffixes to denote parts of speech and convey nuances of meaning. This section contains 4,600 terms grouped into 130 of the most common Spanish suffixes.
The Big Red Book of Spanish Vocabulary also includes a Frequency Table listing the 5,000 most commonly used words in Spanish and an Alphabetical Index cross-referencing every entry in the root, suffix, and frequency sections.
