Vocabulary is one of the pillars of language learning and especially significant for the advanced learner. Once you are familiar with the basic structures of your target language, you'll want to start saying and understanding more words!
This is the Holy Grail for Spanish-learners: videos (movies, TV shows, whatever) in Spanish and with Spanish (not English) subtitles, or an exact transcript in Spanish of what was said (the two are basically the same). Why are Spanish subtitles so important? Because, as someone learning Spanish, you can’t understand everything they’re saying and if you can’t understand what they said, and you don’t have it written down in front of you, then you can’t look it up to learn it–English subtitles might give you a clue as to what was said, but Spanish subtitles would be best since they’re a word-for-word transcription.
