AlwaysSpanish is Retiring!

After a long awkward silence, here's something to break the ice – all over again. I can totally see why you should be upset to see no action from the Burro for over a month now, but trust me, your wait was all worth it. The news here is that your beloved Burro has just moved into a brand new home – one that's a whole lot richer, swankier, and easier to live in. I'm talking about PeppyBurro. That's the name of the new website! Isn't that cool? At least it tells you all about the Burro's pepped up temperament right off the bat, right? This post is not about Spanish-learning tricks (although I will drop in a couple out of habit, I guess) or grammar lessons. This one's all about our new home!

The Witchcraft Of Spanish Vocabulary

The very first step to conquering a language is to tame its vocabulary. And sadly, that's the part that puts off most novice learners because memorizing strange-sounding words is too darn boring! A never-ending chant of rote rehearsal and a nervous prayer can see you through an upcoming test, but the process just won't cut it if your goal is to actually use the language in the street. It's a mystery how this incredibly inefficient method has survived this long and still continues to be perpetuated by schools and educators around the world. So is there any nirvana around this assault of monotony in our miserable lives? Anything that could make learning foreign words less painful?

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Always Spanish has retired. Please visit the new blog at for all future articles.

Comment Policy

Always Spanish is a serious publication of all things Spanish. We are a resource site that provides quality tips and tools that help you enhance your Spanish acquisition experience. One of the ways to improve this collective resource is having engagement and dialog within the community through the use of comments.

We are a thriving community of dedicated self-learners actively encouraging comments on new tutorials and articles. We are dedicated to this community and relentlessly strive to maintain a respectful, engaging and informative conversation. Toward that end, we have general guidelines for commenting. They are enforced 24/7 by our community moderators and moderation tools. If you wish to participate in the discussion, we request that you follow the guidelines below in true community spirit.

While we appreciate each comment, if any comment does not comply with these commenting guidelines, it will be removed. Continuous abuse of the policy will result in permanent ban of the IP address, domain, and the email used.


How to get support for a problem?  If you have a general question directly regarding the tip, hack, or the tutorial that we posted, please post a comment in the post. If your question is more generic or off-topic you should preferably use our contact form. Comment area is not the best place to ask a question that is not related to the article as it tends to take away from the topic under discussion – It is always important to let the conversation stay on course.

What to do if your comment does not appear?  If you leave a comment on this site and it does not appear in a reasonable time period (1 business day), and you know that it does not violate these Comment Policies, please feel free to contact us using the contact form.

Valid Email  Email addresses are required for commenting, and they are not published on the site, nor shared. Email addresses that look like spam will be flagged so.

Language and Etiquette  This publication is written in English, so leave your comments in English. Spanish is also good to go since that is the target language for our community of language learners. Always Spanish is a “family friendly site” therefore any comment that includes offensive or inappropriate language, and/or considered rude, racist, or derogatory by us or our community will be edited or deleted. This is a friendly community, so let’s play it nice!

Value-Add  A comment which does not add to the conversation, runs in an inappropriate tangent, or kills the conversation may be edited, moved, or deleted. All spam comments will be deleted because they do not add value to the site and annoy our community of serious learners like you to no end.

Links and Backlinks  We love resources as they can be really helpful sometimes, but in order to prevent spam and assure quality, we must limit links on the comments. Do not add more than two links in the comment. If you do so, your comment will be added for further review. Do not sign your comments with a backlink to your site. They will be seen as spammy and will be removed.
