How to use Context Clues in Spanish

Guess the Meaning of a Word you don’t Know in Spanish

When learning Spanish or any language lots of learners want to know what everything means.  Having a conversation with someone can cause you to fall into a trap.  Focusing on the meaning of what every word the other person is saying could leave you with no idea what is going on.  A word is said that you have no idea what it means.  Then you start thinking about what that word could mean.  Just like that, you have lost the meaning of the whole sentence because of that one word you did not know.  Then all you think about is what that word could mean.  You will find yourself not knowing the word and what the person just said.  So in this video, we are going to talk about using context clues to figure out the meaning of a sentence.  Next time you encounter a word that you don’t know you can figure out what it means by how it is used and the words around it.

For practice in this video, we are going to have our dear friend and art critic Antonia Pombo help us with this activity.  She will tell you a sentence and one word will be replaced with “takitaki”.  You will try to figure out what that word is using the context clues in the sentence.

We hope you like the video and that it helps you.
