In today’s post, we are going to work with Spanish vocabulary related to things that we can find on the street.
They are very common words that we use every day and that will help you to describe a place or, for example, when we want to go to a place or explain how to do it.
We present the Spanish vocabulary “en la calle”, in a useful infographic that you can see on the right. As on other occasions, if you want to receive a pdf copy of the infographic on the street, you just have to leave us a message in the comments.
At the end of this post, you will find some exercises to practice this vocabulary.
