best online Spanish dictionary and verb conjugatorJust a quick short post here that I suspect will save a lot of you guys some time googling around and trying to find a Spanish dictionary and online verb conjugator that your like–I’ve tried a bunch of them, I’ve used Google Translate (too simple, often has just one word definitions, that’s just not enough), Word Reference (ok, but the interface is a bit difficult to use compared to what I’m currently using), Merriam-Webster, etc. etc.

My personal favorite online Spanish dictionary AND translator (they’ve got both right there, one right under the other, so you can look up a single word or translate a whole sentence or paragraph on the same page) is SpanishDict.com–easy to use and their definitions are the best I’ve seen yet, plus they offer three different translations (one from Google, one from Babelfish, and one from FreeTranslation), and the translator has a button for Spanish to English and right next to it a button for English to Spanish, so again, no need to navigate away, mess around with drop-down menus and selecting the right settings, etc. Super, super easy and very fast to use.

My favorite verb conjugator is Verbix: you type in the word you want conjugated, you hit enter, you are shown a full table, logically organized and easy to read, of the entire conjugation of the verb you just entered.  That’s it. Beautiful simplicity.  SpanishDict also has a verb conjugator, and it’s a toss-up which one is better because it roughly does the same thing in the same way, I just thought I’d throw in a couple options there so you can look at both and decide based on your own personal preferences (I must admit I think the SpanishDict one is a bit prettier).

Cheers,

I see you've been here a while (3 minutes, 30 seconds, to be precise)!

That must mean you like what you're reading!  You're finding it interesting, useful, helpful!  Oh that's wonderful, there's nothing more rewarding for a writer than knowing their material accomplished its goal of helping someone, of telling them something they didn't know before, of providing them with useful information!

Would you like more of the same? I can help you, Spanish students and teachers!

I have whole series of emails (many series!), lists of the most useful free online resources, and more to help beginning/intermediate Spanish students as well as Spanish teachers (a lot of that information is useful to both for different reasons).  If you'll subscribe to my email list right now I'll immediately send you my list of the Top 10 Free Online Spanish-Learning Resources as well as the first in my "Getting Started Learning Spanish" series, with much more to follow (e.g. my "Learn Spanish for Real" series where I teach idioms and slang from real-life contexts, "Learn Spanish from the News", "Learn Spanish on YouTube", and more!).

Thank you so much for giving me a chance and subscribing to my questionable writings, you'll receive your first two in the next few minutes - Andrew
