How to make a vocabulary list

There are two ways that you can make new vocabulary lists and add words to your lists.

From a dictionary entry

When you're viewing a dictionary entry on SpanishDict, you can click on the "Add to list" button in the top right corner of the entry to save the word to a vocabulary list.

If you are not currently signed into a free SpanishDict account, clicking the "Add to list" button will redirect you to the main Vocabulary page, where you can click "Get Started Now" and either create a free account or sign into an existing one. 

If you are already signed into the site with your free account, the "Add to list" button will bring up a box that gives you the option to create a new list, or, if you already have some lists started, you can add the word to an existing list. 

After selecting the list that you want to use (or creating a new one), you will be asked to choose a translation for the word.

Once the word is saved, you'll see a blue confirmation box at the bottom of the page that will disappear after a few seconds.

From the Vocabulary page

You can also create a list by clicking the word "Vocabulary" at the top of the page, followed by "Create new list". On mobile devices, you'll need to open the menu in the top right corner of the screen and then select "Vocabulary", followed by "Create new list".

You will be asked to give your list a name, and you can then click on "Create".

The page will change to show the new list space, and you can then click on "Add new word" to reveal a text box where you can type a Spanish or English word.

Select the word or phrase that you want. 

Then select the translation that you would like to practice. 

You can repeat that process to add more words to your list.

Accessing a vocabulary list

Once you get a list started, you can find the list by clicking on "Vocabulary" at the top of the page (or in the menu of the mobile site). When you first open the Vocabulary feature, you'll see a section at the top called "My Lists". All of the lists that you create, as well as any other SpanishDict-created lists that you practice in the quizzes, will appear in this section for easy access.

If you don't see the name of the list that you want in the initial view, you can click on "See all" to the right of "My Lists" to find all of your personal lists. Once you find the list that you want, you can click on its title to start the practice quiz. If you'd like to edit the list, either click on the link that shows the number of words in the list, or, on computers, you can click the "Edit List" button to the right of the list name.
