This post was contributed by Quizlet Teacher Ambassador, José Juan Cruz Pérez, who specializes in teaching Spanish online. When José posts new lessons, he uses Quizlet's embed option to add interactive activities for his students. See a great example in one of his lessons on clothing vocabulary below:

Hola todos y a todas. Seguimos hoy también con vocabulario para nivel básico, para los que están empezando a aprender español.
Hi everyone. Today we carry on with basic vocabulary, for those of you who are starting to learn Spanish.

Hablamos de ropa. O, como también decimos en español, prendas de vestir. Al tratarse simplemente de vocabulario, no hay mucho que explicar, así que les dejo directamente con las actividades que he preparado.
We talk about clothes. Or, like we also say in Spanish, “items of clothing.” As we’re simply dealing with vocabulary, there isn’t much to explain, so I’m leaving you directly with the activities that I’ve prepared.

Sí les aconsejaría que no intentaran aprender todas estas palabras. Solo las que, en este momento, les interesen o llamen la atención. Si llegado el momento no saben cómo se dice algo en español, siempre pueden preguntarlo.
What I would advise is not to try to learn all these words. Only the ones that, at this time, you may be interested in or drew your attention. If in a certain situation you don’t know how to say something in Spanish, you can always ask.

Dicho esto, aquí tienen las actividades para que puedan ir familiarizándose con este tipo de vocabulario.
Having said that, here you have the activities to start familiarizing yourselves with this type of vocabulary.

Con el siguiente ejercicio puedes practicar la comprensión auditiva y la ortografía.
With the following exercise you can practise your listening comprehension and your spelling.

Si eliges la opción «fichas» puedes convertir este ejercicio en tarjetas para seguir practicando. También te sugiero la opción «combinar».
If you choose the option “Flashcards” you can convert this exercise into flashcards to keep practising. I’d also suggest the option “Match.”

Y para practicar cómodamente con tu móvil, solo tienes que buscar «YSW39» en tu aplicación «Quizlet», disponible tanto para android como iphone.
And to practise easily on your cell phone, just search “YSW39” on your Quizlet app, available in both Android and iPhone.

You can easily embed public sets in Flashcards, Match, Learn, Test, and Speller on your website or LMS. José is also a big fan of recording his own audio on his Quizlet sets, to emphasize correct pronunciation and slow down the audio for beginners.
