Body in Spanish

Knowing how to talk about the body in Spanish is an important part of coming to grips with Spanish. You may need to use Spanish body words in a whole range of contexts from visiting the doctor to working out at the gym, buying clothes or buying medicine at the pharmacy. You will be happy to know that much of the body vocabulary pronunciation is straightforward and reasonably easy for English speakers to grasp. It might even help your memory to touch or shake each body part as you recite the words. Give it a try and have fun with it!

How do you talk about your actual body in Spanish?

Here's an example!

Yo me lavo el cuerpo.

I wash my (own) body. (Lit: I wash myself the body.)

How did you go? Remember to keep revising the words, repeating them and giving yourself little tests throughout the day. Moving or pointing to each body part as you remember the word will help your brain to make the connections even more quickly. In no time at all you will remember the words without even having to think about it.
