It's time to talk about el barrio in Spanish. The vecindario o barrio means neighborhood in English

As you progress through your Spanish lessons, you will undoubtedly be asked many questions regarding places to go in Spanish. How can you properly say the names of places in Spanish? What's a typical "place" in a typical Spanish neighborhood? 

While learning to speak Spanish, you should memorize the basic vocabulary and verb conjugation lists.

A very good way to build vocabulary and verb conjugation skills is through controlled practice. There are two ways that you can use controlled practice in Spanish: (a) you can go out with your friends and colleagues and practice your conversations with them, and (b) you can do controlled practice at home. In both cases, you will need to be serious about it, because if you don't, then you are not going to get very far.
