Spanish Vocabulary: School Supplies

Hello there! Welcome once more to our new section of Spanish vocabulary: classroom materials. In our previous post of Spanish vocabulary: “Banks and money” we learned about the basic words economy-related that you’ll need when coming to Quito, Cusco or Sucre, so dealing with money doesn’t become something anonoying!

Today we’ll learn something equally exciting and useful: vocabulary we’ll need to express ourselves when in the school in Quito, Cusco or Sucre. In order to make the most of our Spanish lessons in the school we’ll need to know the spanish vocabulary applied in that context. We’ll need to know the school materials we’ll we working with. That, without a doubt, will make us express our needs to our teachers and partners much easier!

Let’s begin then, enjoy and learn with us!
