You’re probably already spending hours on Rosetta Stone.  You’re practically glued to your Duolingo app.  You have all the latest Spanish music, but you are on the look out for ways to perfect your second language that aren’t so… traditional.  Here are six unconventional ways to practice your Spanish.


There is no better way to immerse yourself in the language than to travel to a place where it is spoken. If you can’t hop on the first to flight to Barcelona (yet), then hit up your local mercado.  You will not only get your groceries out of the way, but you will gain new vocabulary (because let’s face it… you don’t know the word for every food item that exists).


Place new terms and phrases on sticky notes and plaster them around your home.  Put them in places you send a ton of time in like your bedroom or bathroom. It can be perfect for this type of learning tactic. This tip may cause your house guests to wonder about you, but after explaining why you are doing it, they will be on board.

    This is great. I’m still learning Spanish but I started an English blog written in Spanish for those who are beginners to English. Yo veo novelas. Yo he visto Santa Diabla, Muneca Brava. Tierra de Reyes, y Maria Del Barrio y La Rosa de Guadalupe. It’s hard being a black person that speaks spanish. It’s hard to find other black people that want to learn.
