 5 Ways to improve your Spanish with Facebook 


Who said Facebook is a waste of time? If you enjoy being on Facebook, why don’t you make the most of it and learn some Spanish on the way? After all, Facebook is a means of communication, and what a better way of improving your Spanish than “being with the locals”.


 # 1 Change language 

Check on your Facebook friends’ list and see if there are any Spanish speakers. If there are, but you haven’t used Spanish yet when talking to them, let them know that you would like to start doing so. Perhaps at the beginning they forget to address to you in Spanish, because they are not use to. Still, you can write your comments 'en español' until they get used to it. And don't worry about making mistakes, or mixing your language with some Spanish. The main thing is that you start communicating in Spanish. 


 # 2 Make new friends 

To add new Spanish friends on Facebook, make an announcement on your wall explaining
everybody that you would like to meet Spanish speakers on the net, and that you would appreciate being introduced to their Spanish Facebook friends.

Once your first friendship request is accepted, you will be able to start communicating in Spanish and so you will have the chance to improve the language. 


 # 3 Post Spanish stuff 

Get used to - if you are not already doing so -surf on the Spanish world wide web. Thus, you will not only improve your Spanish by reading on topics of your interest, but you will also have Spanish stuff to share with your new Spanish community. What to post? There is no right or wrong on Facebook. Just be yourself, your Spanish self. : )

 # 4 Join a Spanish Facebook group 

Do a search on Spanish Facebook groups and I’m sure you’ll find at least one of your interest. Some groups are pretty active, and so it’s now the time to engage yourself in the conversation. Do not worry if you make mistakes, nobody is there to judge your Spanish. As a matter of fact, you will be more than welcome to participate in the discussions, since a group is nothing without people taking part.

 # 5 Like a Spanish page 

Do a search or ask your friends to advise you on any interesting Spanish Facebook
pages. Select a few of your interests, like them and wait. In less than a minute, you will be nicely bombarded with stuff about them. The good thing about internet is that one page leads you to another and then another ...

Being on Facebook, you’ll be reading lots, and your Spanish reading skills will benefit.
substantially. Imagine, so much knowledge, and it’s all just a click away.

And now it's your turn:
