Spanish Reading Practice

Spanish Texts with Vocabulary

A great way to learn Spanish vocabulary is by reading texts, stories or articles that are completely in the language. That is why we have written our own short reading passages in Spanish about different topics.

Remember not to worry about trying to understand all of the details and the grammar rules that appear. Just try and get the gist or general idea of the text. As your Spanish improves, return to each passage and you will be surprised by just how much more you have learned.
