Let me explain why it doesn’t work and what you can do about it. Here’s what usually happens with word lists. First day you learn words related to a theme e.g. animals. So you learn the Spanish words for goat, pig, donkey, horse, saddle, bridle, tiger, lion, zoo, etc.
Next day’s theme is furniture: bed, sofa, table, chair, armchair, cupboard, toy box etc. If you learn 10 words a day then after three days 10+10+10 = 30 words
Now you know 30 words. That’s better than 3 days ago, but can you go out and communicate in the Spanish world?
What would you say? Dog cat armchair or pig saddle sofa?
“On the other hand, when you multiply Spanish 10 x 10 x 10 = 1000 phrase combinations you can use at will to express yourself. The result is the difference between dog pig monkey vs. me gustaría verla esta noche (I would like to see her tonight.)”
By using combinations, you speak in real Spanish sentences in next to no time.
In fact, the example sentence is from lesson 3 of Synergy Spanish. You easily make sentences like this and many more by lesson 3. Best of all, you can finish lessons 1-3 in just a few hours.
This is the most powerful secret for your successful communication in Spanish.
Instead of learning thematic words-lists that make you sound like a cave man, you discover patterns that multiply Spanish. Then the words flow naturally into Spanish phrases you can use any time you want.
