Are you looking for interesting ways to learn Spanish and foster your love for the language? In addition to classroom-style learning, reading books and (if possible) traveling to Spanish-speaking countries, there are some really innovative ways you can immerse yourself in the language. From eating (and ordering) food in Spanish to switching your language settings on Netflix and social media, the methods listed below are accessible to everybody!

One of the most fun ways to learn Spanish is to find a nearby Spanish restaurant. Take time to choose Spanish dishes you love and explore dishes you’ve never tried before. If you’re a fan of tapas, paella or patatas bravas, then you’ll feel right at home! Wondering how eating Spanish food will help you learn the language? Well, here’s the challenge: order your food in Spanish and, if you’re with friends who speak Spanish, incorporate the language into your conversation as much as possible!
Netflix has the power to be the best procrastination tool, but if used correctly it can be a brilliant learning resource! Did you know that you can experiment with subtitles and languages on your Netflix account? Use this feature to immerse yourself in the language! You could watch shows and movies in English with the Spanish subtitles on, you could watch in Spanish with the English subtitles on, or you could have both the audio and subtitles in Spanish, depending on your level of speaking, reading and understanding. We recommend beginning with a show you’ve already seen, with a storyline you are familiar with. So, if you regularly binge-watch Friends, for example, keep up to date with Ross and Rachel’s on-and-off relationship in Spanish. Because this activity doesn’t feel like work, you’ll soon feel more comfortable with speaking and learning the language!
Looking for a fun way to get your brain thinking in Spanish? Try Scrabble! You could play with a native-Spanish speaker or play online against a computer. This is a creative way to learn Spanish because you’ll be forced to think of different words you could create with the letters you are given. Playing Scrabble can help you test your knowledge and expand your Spanish vocabulary!
Here’s another tool that many of us use on a daily basis, which actually has the potential to help you learn a new language! Here’s how to make the most of this social platform: switch your Facebook feed language to Spanish. There’s a lot you can learn from reading Spanish articles, but using social media will help you to understand the nuances of the language and how to use it conversationally. For example, slang words and colloquial terms!
There’s only so much you can learn from reading, watching and listening to others speak Spanish. The real test is to have conversations with someone who has an in-depth understanding of the language. Even better, pair up with a tutor who is skilled at teaching Spanish! That’s where we come in. At Teach Me 2, we hire only the best tutors and we are intentional about pairing learners with their perfect tutor.
