You want easy learning? We've got it!
If you are looking for some of the easiest to learn Spanish vocabulary, then look no further. This page contains words that are either the same between the Spanish and English languages, or words that are very similar. When words are the same, they are considered "free" because you already know them. When words are very similar, they are considered "almost free" because they are so similar, they should be easier to remember.
Scroll down for a look at our easiest to learn Spanish vocabulary. Random words that are the same or close have been added to this page, along with a list of the months of the year and the astrological signs, because they have obvious similarities between the languages.
Below the list of free or almost free words you'll find a series of books you can purchase focused on easy Spanish learning, a number of Spanish-themed articles and our current Spanish poll.

The Fine Print
The Spanish to English Dictionary featured at the Chromlea Language Tutor may contain some errors in the Spanish language. It is to be seen with a grain of salt, as all the content is from actual user submissions and not checked for grammatical / spelling accuracy (though we do correct our content as we are informed of errors). We wish you the best with your learning Spanish and hope you can find this site helpful in your Spanish language study.
