Talking about fruits and vegetables in Spanish Today we are talking about fruits and vegetables in Spanish, it might sound quite basic but you will be surprise how many new words you learn, and it is a basic, that is why you need it.

This week is time to learn some new vocabulary and when I was thinking about what to write about I was eating an orange‚Ķand ta-da! I got my answer, I thought we will be talking about fruits and vegetables in Spanish, frutas y vegetales, as it is something we use in our day quite often, and sometimes things we use quite often in our native language are the ones we need to learn in other languages as when we want to say them in Spanish we realize we do not know them‚Ķand you will probably kick yourself thinking ‚Äúhow is possible I do not know how to say pineapple in Spanish? I have learnt Spanish for a while‚Ķ‚ÄĚ well to avoid this situation is why we are learning or reviewing this today. As it might be possible you learnt them and then not used them quite often as you will think you would remember when you would need to use them‚Ķ.but them‚Ķ.mind blank!

Ok, ok, I have said enough let’s go to the point now.

Also if you have any other fruta o verdura that you particular like and it is not in here leave a comment below letting me know and I will get back to you asap with the Spanish equivalent.

I hope you enjoyed this entry and found it useful, now it is your turn‚Ķtry to think in Spanish every time you eat a vegetable or a fruit, that will keep your brain thinking in Spanish ūüôā

For homework you could leave a comment below telling me your favourite fruit and vegetable or the ones you do not like, for me it would be

‚Äúme gusta las fresas y las espinacas, pero no me gusta el brocoli‚ÄĚ

I like strawberries and spinach, but I do not like broccoli

Also before saying ¡adiós! I would love if you could share this blog with a fellow learner who could benefit from it.
