Spanish Family Vocabulary

A family at the beach

“Mi novia es mexicana y me ayuda a mejorar mi español.”

If you are lucky enough to have a boyfriend or girlfriend who is helping you speak Spanish, then you are definitely going to want to brush up on your Spanish family vocabulary before that important family visit.

Memorize terms for family members in Spanish, such as mom, dad, sister, uncle, and aunt, as well as other related words. You will study them in our vocabulary game, where you will need to recall the words you learn in Spanish example sentences (like the one shown above).

Our AI will then take the words that you don’t know and put them in your words to repeat – you will work on these words daily until they are in your long-term memory. This is how you are able to memorize vocabulary much faster with Lingvist.
