For many Spanish learners, reading and writing comes a lot easier than listening and speaking. That's why I've assembled a list of some of my favorite FREE ways to practice your listening skills (with suggestions from other Spanish learners, too).
Join me each Friday in February at 5pm Central for a Q&A session for Spanish learners on facebook live. I'll be answering a variety of questions that come up while teaching Spanish throughout the week, plus any questions that you have while tuning in live, which you can drop in the comments of the live video.

Here's what regular attendees have said about Facebook Live Spanish Convo Sessions:
"I am so glad I came across your group. Thanks to you I am finally speaking the language. Slowly and with mistakes but I am speaking. Your group is so fun." - Jola
"Que interesante...soy un introvertido, es decir que prefiero pensar sobre lo que quiero decir o escribir. Cuando estaba escribiendo muy rápido a contestar a las preguntas, di en cuenta que la cualidad de la comunicación era similar de cuando hablo por Skype. Pero eso es normal. Era divertido. Gracias Hannah Pinkerton. Gracias por la sesión anoche, fue interesante y divertido." - Brad
English Translation: "How interesting. I am an introvert. I prefer to think about what I want to say or write. When I was writing very quickly to answer your questions, I realized that the quality of communication was similar to when I talk on Skype, which is normal. It was fun. Thanks, Hannah Pinkerton. Thanks for the session last night. It was interesting and fun." - Brad

New!!! Want to practice Spanish for free with native speakers? Check out the Spanish + English Language Exchange Facebook group!
It's an intercambio for native Spanish speakers who want to learn and practice English, and for native English speakers who want to learn and practice Spanish. If you're looking for a friend or friends to practice with one on one or in a small group, this group is for you.
Language exchange is a method of language learning based on mutual language practicing by learning partners who are speakers of different languages. This is usually done by two native speakers teaching each other their native language. Language exchange is different from other Language learning methods as there is usually no set syllabus or activities. Language exchange is sometimes called Tandem language learning.
In modern contexts, "language exchange" most often refers to the mutual teaching of partners' first languages. Language exchanges are generally considered helpful for developing language proficiency, especially in speaking fluency and listening comprehension. Language exchanges that take place through writing or text chats also improve reading comprehension and writing ability. The aim of language exchange is to develop and increase language knowledge and intercultural skills. This is usually done through social interaction with the native speaker. Given that language exchanges generally take place between native speakers of different languages, there is also the side benefit of improving cross-cultural communication.
