Spanish to English: 5000 Most Common Words in Alphabetical Order

This ordered dictionary of the most common 5,000 Spanish words was created because I needed a word list of the most frequent used words & verbs in Spanish, to help me learn Spanish in the shortest amount of time possible.

Using a memory palace with loci for each of the starting two letters of each Spanish word, as described here is a great way of doing this. By only studying the words you will actually use, it is possible to gain a good grasp of a language in a short amount of time.

This word lists includes the most frequently used words, most frequently used nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions and numbers.
