Back to Class: Spanish School Vocabulary!

Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday! Summer’s winding down, and a lot of people are heading back to class for a new school year. So this week we’ve decided to focus a little bit more on back to school and back to school Spanish vocabulary words.  Today more and more classrooms and students are bilingual, and there are a lot of words that are useful for everyday class. We’ve compiled a list of some of the ones we could find, and we’re adding to the list  as we think of more! If you’re one of the students heading back to school soon, we wish you a happy and productive school year, and to everyone else, we wish you lots of luck and happiness in whatever your new endeavors may be.  See you next time!

Back to School Shopping: Spanish Vocabulary

Hello everyone! As summer slowly fades away, many school districts are beginning the process of welcoming back students after the summer break…and with back to school often comes a back to school shopping list. This summer passed by way too fast, it feels like it just started! So for this week’s post we wanted to focus a little bit on vocabulary for back to school shopping, although most of these words are useful for any kind of shopping. Here we’ve listed some Spanish words that might come in handy during a back to school shopping trip. There are many, many more, so if you have some we don’t have here we’d love to add them. And if you’re looking for back to school teacher’s gifts we highly recommend one of our mugs, they’re perfect for a coffee or tea loving teacher. Here’s to hoping that wherever you are, that you are enjoying your week. And if you’re beginning a new school year within the next few days or weeks, we wish you a happy and productive year! Until next time!
