How to learn Spanish with Facebook


Do you use Facebook a lot and are also looking for an easy way to learn Spanish. Worry not, because Facebook has got your back! With over 900 million active users in Latin America, it’s the different place to learn Spanish. In this post, I’ll give you tips on how to use Facebook to improve your Spanish skills. Keep in mind, though, that this is only going to augment your language learning process. You won’t become fluent this way, but it is a fun language learning hack that can be utilized with other learning techniques.


Join Spanish-speaking groups


Look for groups that post content in Spanish on Facebook. This could be anything from a page about a popular Latin American band to a group for Spanish-speaking expats in your city. Join them and read their content. You’ll pick up new vocabulary and grammar, and get a feel for how informal Spanish is used.


Chat with Spanish-speaking friends


Got a Spanish-speaking friend on Facebook? Instead of sending them messages in English, start chatting with them in Spanish. Even if you make mistakes, your friend will likely be encouraging and help you learn. Plus, chatting with someone is a more natural way to practice your spoken Spanish.


Watch Spanish-language videos


Facebook’s video content is exploding. Search for Spanish-language videos on Facebook, such as cooking tutorials or travel vlogs. You’ll not only learn Spanish, but you’ll pick up some new skills as well. Make sure to turn on subtitles if you’re struggling.


Change your interface language


Did you know you can change the language of your Facebook interface? Change it to Spanish and your headlines and menus will appear in Spanish. It’s a quick way to become more familiar with the language, and you’ll likely learn a lot of new vocabulary. Keep in mind though: everything is going to be in Spanish when you go poking around trying to change the language back to English.


Use Spanish in your own posts


Finally, don’t be afraid to use Spanish in your own posts. Even if you’re not confident in your Spanish, putting it out there will hold you accountable to improving. Plus, your Spanish-speaking friends will appreciate the effort and help you along.
