Learning a language is a wonderful adventure through words. Acquiring new words to improve our vocabulary requires effort and dedication. So, it is always useful to have a few tricks up your sleeve to access new words quickly.
Both Spanish and Asturian are Ibero-Romance languages, this means that they are closely related languages and learning and expanding your vocabulary is an easier task.
The infographic below will provide you with 2 simple methods you can start using now to boost your vocabulary in Asturian:
1. When a word in Spanish begins with an "l" it becomes "ll" in Asturian
