Here's a database of words that basically are the same in Spanish and English. But watch out for false friends aka false cognates! Embarazada means pregnant, not embarrassed, as many a Spanish student will be azorada to forget!
In the Medical lesson, you will learn bienestar, or well-being. A teacher told me that Spanish doesn't really do portmanteaus and compound words as often as English does, but that and paragua are definitely some.
I can often guess meaning from roots, or from my much stronger Italian skills. But sometimes I get thrown for a loop. Such as "pregunta" (question, not pregnant...). Language is so fascinating, especially portmanteaus!
