6 Tips for Learning Furniture in Spanish

  • Keep it fun and interesting. If a topic is entertaining, you’re more apt to look forward to learning.
  • Take a course in Spanish furniture or home décor. Learn about different furniture styles, types of wood used in furniture construction and other house décor topics. Learning more about the subject will give you additional conversational topics and an enhanced perspective!
  • Go shopping! Check out lots of furniture and talk in Spanish to salespeople. Ask questions and make notes when you hear interesting answers. Or if you’re shopping online, change your browser settings to Spanish.
  • Online learning is a great option for gathering furniture information. Many libraries and universities offer online furniture and home decorating courses. I’ve taken a few and they were fun and super educational. Also, some cities offer virtual home tours!
  • Don’t forget sticky notes! Using sticky notes to learn furniture in Spanish is super fun—it’s almost like you’re turning your home into a giant game! Use sticky notes consistently for the best results and name every piece of furniture you see, use or pass by.
  • Immerse yourself in Spanish at home. The Spanish videos on the FluentU program can help you learn vocabulary in context. This means you can see how native Spanish speakers actually use Spanish words in conversation.

    FluentU takes authentic videos—like music videos, movie trailers, news and inspiring talks—and turns them into personalized language learning lessons.
