Suggestion: when learning synonyms, point out which is more commonly used

As the number of synonyms I learn grows bigger, sometimes even in the same lesson I think it will be very helpful to point out which one is used more common and which one is more "formal".

I agree. I would also prefer to learn about 1500-2000 most common words with minimum synonyms.


what's that "M" that goes along with your name


Yesss...I spend a good chunk of time trying to figure out the nuances offsite. alimento vs comida? sólo vs solamente vs únicamente? despacho vs oficina? periódico vs diario (finally figured this one out!)? cuarto vs pieza? dormitorio vs habitación?
