The Spanish-speaking cultures are rich in tradition, and family is at the heart of it all. This makes it especially important to know and understand the basic relationship vocabulary of the family in Spanish.

Sister = HermanaBrother = HermanoFather = PadreMother = MadreHusband =Esposo or MaridoWife = Esposa or MujerSon = HijoDaughter = HijaGrandmother = AbuelaGrandfather = AbueloGrandson = NietoGranddaughter = NietaUncle = TíoAunt = TíaThe Family = La familia
At first glance, you may have thought the word for daughter was a typo, and should have read “mija” rather than “hija”. Mjja is a colloquial contraction of the Spanish words mi (“my”) and hija (“daughter”). The male counterpart to this is “mijo”. They are often used from a parent to child, but frequently used as a term of endearment much like “dear” or “honey” in English.
Spanish is a popular choice for those seeking to learn another language. There are 437 million people around the world who speak Spanish, 40 million of those who live in the United States alone. Spanish is also the second most spoken language in the U.S. No matter the reason you have for learning Spanish, you can get off to a great start in your language journey by first learning how to pronounce some very basic words and phrases.
It’s so important for new Spanish language learners to focus on understanding and pronouncing basic words and phrases most commonly used.

I've been using Rosetta Stone for years to gain basic competency in multiple languages including German, French, Italian, and recently Chinese and Russian. Starts with the very basics teaching basic vocabulary and grammar without any memorization. I've even impressed some locals in my travels with pronunciation and fluency. This is an excellent place to start if interested in starting to learn a new language or brushing up on one learned years ago.
I am trying out Rosetta Stone, to see if it will help out with the correct grammar and conversation (as well as learning how to read and write the language). Within a week, I can already master the sentence structure and start learning the grammar with particles. The local community is so excited to see that I am starting to learn their language. Out of all the language learning tools out there, I 100% recommend Rosetta Stone!
I've tried other language learning software but Rosetta Stone is much more challenging and professional. I don't have to worry about earning points and following the leader board. I'm trying out the ninety day trial to learn some Russian and I will pay for the privilege once I reach the end of the trial.
