English sentences with Spanish words inserted

Learning Spanish involves both attention to linguistic forms and their meanings.  In order to fix such meanings in your mind, you may want to use the strategy of creating a sentence in English where you insert a particular word/form in Spanish that fits the sentence context. Associating a word/form with a certain context or activity that you can easily relate to in English may help to anchor its meaning in your mind.
