How quickly can you learn 10 new words in Spanish?

How does '3-minutes' sound? Incredible? Well, not really. Come, let's discover the wonders of this powerful technique called, visualization.

Just read through them one word at a time. Read the Spanish word first and then the meaning. Then read and understand the visualization given next to it. Notice the syllables/words/phrases that appear in bold. Try to relate the visual image to the word and its meaning. Now, close your eyes and just imagine the visual imagination you just read and repeat it to yourself for 10-15 seconds. Now, open your eyes. Before you realize it, you have already learned the word forever! Try it here:

Zorro fox (a fox in the mask of Zorro)

Gato cat (a cat with wide gaps between his toes)

Perro dog (a dog jumping over a pair of rowboats)

Oso bear (a sloth bear...oh, so big!)

Chico boy (it would be a Chick, i.e. female, but it isn't, because it has an o on the end, which makes it masculine)

Mesa table (imagine a table made of salt licks)

Falda skirt (imagine a skirt worn in the fall by your dame)

Agua water (water = Aqua = the Spanish word Agua)

Cabeza head (a head sitting in a cab at the base of the passenger's side, crying out, "Ah!" when the driver makes a sharp turn)

Chica girl (imagine kissing a girl on the cheek)

So, how did it feel learning 10 new words in 3 minutes flat? Happy visualization, hasta la vista!

I'm not sure if the head one was brief enough, but I can visualize it!

Missy,

How about linking a baseball cap with it? Imagine a handsome college boy with a cute face wearing a baseball cap. Here, thought the syllables are slightly distorted but I am sure you'll be able to correlate them correctly. Let me know if that helps.

Enjoy your trip to Latin American. Most likely, your favorite part of your trip will be your interactions with its people, and the more Spanish you can become comfortable using, the more fun you will have. Remember, everyone who is learning a new language makes mistakes, and with the right attitude, that will be part of the fun!
