Another way to learn Spanish is to delve into print. Gather some catalogs or magazines and find photos that really grab your attention. Find objects or words in the photos and ads.
Label the words and objects with the Spanish word for them. Use post - it notes to label the photo or write the words on a separate piece of paper or in a notebook.
Collect as many words as you can.
Another thing you can do is ask what is going on in the picture. Is there a story behind it? What is the model doing in the photograph? What are the objects doing? What are the words saying?
You can also write a story using the words you have labeled and collected. Write a small paragraph in Spanish using the words you have collected.
Print has so much to offer. There's a lot going on in the photos that can teach you.
Collect as many photos as you can and put them in a folder. Later, you can do this same activity with the rest of the photographs. Not only are you increasing your print literacy, you are getting familiar with the content you are researching.
Don't pass over print. It is an amazing medium for young and old.
