The first challenge is very simple. Just spend a few minutes flicking through your Spanish English dictionary and pick out five new words that you do not know but that look useful. Write the words and their meanings down in a notebook or a piece of card so you can carry them around with you. The challenging part is to use this new Spanish vocabulary at least three times each in conversations over the next two weeks. This can be with anyone if you live in a Spanish speaking country, or just with your classmates or study companions if not.
Repeating a word in a real context helps it to stick in your head more strongly.
