– Flyers on the street
When you walk through the streets, especially in the city centre, you will see many people handing out advertising flyers.

You come home and have many advertising flyers in your mailbox, especially from supermarkets. You sit calmly and observe the folders and at the same time expand your Spanish. If you pay attention, you will learn how to spell words and the meaning of them. Write it down in a notebook!
– Visiting stores
If you visit a department store, perfume shop or record store you will find these small advertising leaflets. Take them with you! A shopping trip is, perhaps unwittingly, an opportunity to learn new concepts and vocabulary associated with images.
