Spanish Vocabulary Frequency Dictionary

This page accesses a database of the 5000 most frequent words in Spanish, ordered by frequency of use.

You can limit the display to various parts of speech, so, for example, you could request a list of the 200 most frequently used verbs. Or, you can view the vocabulary by category, such as clothing, or family related items.


Flashcards: (formerly Mental Case)

Flashcards are available for much of the vocabulary as well. You will need to download the iOS Studies app that I use for the flashcards. To download a stack of vocabulary, navigate to this page on your iOS device in Safari and click the link to download. iOS will offer to open the list in the Studies app.
