Vocabulary Categories

Long story short, I am making my own Spanish Flash Card application to help learn a new programming language and to help learn Spanish. If you had to create 7-10 categories that encompassed the largest portion of words possible, what would they be? Here is my first cut.

1. Around the house
2. Eating/Food
3. Travel
4. Adjectives and Adverbs
5. Sports and Entertainment
6. Business and Technology
7. Everyday Conversation (this one may be too vague)
8. Health and Medical? (Is there a better overall title?)

Still need something to cover other stuff you see out in the world like plants, animals, etc... Maybe shopping? I'll need clothes as well (although I could put in the Around the House category.

Thoughts?

Some suggestions:

People's activities (professions, occupations, work...)
Arts (music, painting...)
Sports
Where people live (countryside, city...)
Shopping might include weights, currencies, sizes...
Clothing, as a separate category, might also be useful for including colours and textures, for example.

Nature
Minerals
Animals
Plants
The Environment
The Home
Society
The Intellect and Emotions
Education and Learning
Places
Science
Communications
The Arts and Entertainment

But I can't type out the whole vocabulary for you.

Thanks! That list is really good. I may be able to come up with a condensed version. It may just have to be more than 10...
