Hello and welcome to Spanish Blog 365 where we are getting you to the excitement of conversation faster!


Mondays are workplace Spanish days where we explore a different career and learn key industry vocabulary.
Even if you don’t work in this field you will probably find words and phrases that will apply to other areas of your life…so keep reading!

Last Monday we did a Post on phrases for the classroom.  Then 2 weeks ago we did vocabulary building around education in general – from preschool to higher education.


Today here are some great words for the classroom or anyone around young children.
