How To Learn Spanish Today and Speak Conversational Spanish Like a Native Speaker

If you want to learn Spanish today, it is imperative that you begin learning the language today and that you do not postpone learning. Today, I have 6 vocabulary words from my old “cuaderno” (notebook) to help you in your journey to learn this language. It is very important that you learn these words because you may not find them in a learning-Spanish book but native Spanish speakers use the 6 words all the time.

1. Repartir – to hand-out

2. Volante – flyer

Están repartiendo volantes en la calle.
They are handing out flyers in the street.

Note that in addition to “flyer” the word “volante” can also mean “steering wheel.”

3. Repartidor – Deliverman

El repartidor pasaba muy temprano por la casa.
The deliveryman used to pass by the house very early.

4. Derramar: to spill

Se me derramó la leche.
I spilled the milk (by accident).

5. Regar: to water

Tengo que regar las matas.
I have to water the plants.

Note that in Colombia, I have heard the “gente” (people) use the word “regar” to not only mean “to water” but also to “to spill.” And the word “derramar” is also used in Colombia to mean “to spill.” If you want to know how to say “plant” in Spanish, take note that in Latin America, you may hear the word “mata” or the word “planta” used.

6. Matera: Flower Pot

Hay una mata muy grande en esa matera.
There is a very large plant in that flower pot.
