1 Curso: Los Empleos – Unos Ejercicios

Click on the links below in order to practice some of the vocabulary of professions and jobs we’ve learned over the last week:

1. Click on this link to practice with some flashcards on Quizlet. Not every word we learned is included here but there are one or two new ones.

2. A series of games to practice with. Be sure to start with the flashcard game.

El Cuerpo Humano

Here is a great collection of flashcards on Quizlet to practice the vocabulary for the human body. Be sure to learn the words from the flashcards before you attempt the Study tasks and Games. And don’t forget to turn on the audio so you can hear as well as read the words.

You can play Vocab Battleship here with more words based on the topic.

And by clicking here you can access even more games.

Try to use these as often as possible. It’s more enjoyable and an easier way to learn new vocabulary than just reading words off a list.

El Cuerpo Hermano II

Here’s a few more links to help you with the vocab for the human body:

A very good video presentation on youtube that lets you hear the words as well as read them.

Test yourself with this multiple choice test.

And another quiz here in the form of word jumbles.

Practice the vocabulary for describing illness from p.130 of Primer Paso 2.

Practice the vocabulary for the doctors/dentists office from p.133 of Primer Paso 2 here.

A great series of activities here to practice vocabulary and phrases.

So remember if reading lists of words out of the book isn’t your thing, or you’re not a fan of writing things out three times after our class tests then these are alternative and more enjoyable ways to learn the vocabulary.

Also, don’t be afraid to search on youtube and other sites like or for topics you feel you need to review yourself. Just enter a search item and watch as a list of resources piles up on the screen BUT be sure to enter the search item in Spanish e.g. el cuerpo humano, el futuro etc.

As we review all of our content over the coming months and prior to the Junior Cert I’ll be adding more activities for each topic. Make the most of it.
