Hispanic words vegetables

Why are Spanish vegetables important even if you do not live in Madrid?  I am an American living in Eastern Europe and we get a lot of vegetables from Spain, like the USA gets a lot of veggies and produce from Mexico.

If you have all these imported tomatoes and foods from Spain or Mexico then know how to cook and name them in the original language, it is fun.

I love Spanish food. If you know a few vocabulary words without the help of a dictionary or translator you can look up recipes online and cook Spanish vegetarian food from authentic Spanish or Mexican website.

Latina vocabulary exercises

The reason I put a lot of innocent tests on my language sites is memory is a retraction not a retention problem.  Once it is in your brain, the memory is formed, you just have trouble bringing it out.  If you say ‘that is right’  or ‘aha now I remember’, that means the word is in your language center of your brain, it just needs help.  This is why take a quiz will help get you speaking Spanish words fast.  So do this exercise until you get 100%.

I also make Spanish flashcards if you really want to learn Spanish. These are visual physical cards with a focus on verbs not concrete nouns. Concrete nouns are easy but verbs are the soul and the Spanish language. Let me know if you have other vegetables vocabulary that belong on this word list.
