Why it is important to learn Spanish Words!
No matter what your level is in Spanish, I always recommend you learn new Spanish words as time goes by. Automatically, every day. That's the philosophy behind Spanish Word-a-Day. I want you to make learning Spanish a part of your daily routine... just like brushing your teeth. It is effortless, and fun! Did you know that the Spanish language as something close to 70,000 words in its vocabulary? How many do you know? Here is a hint: The average person knows around 2,000 words in his mother language.
