You probably know some grammar, vocabulary, etc., but the TRUE test of your proficiency, of your fluency is answered in this ONE question…

How does this work?
Are you learning Spanish? ↓
You need a Spanish practice group because speaking another language comfortably and confidently requires PRACTICE. In the same way that you can’t learn how to dance without actually trying the moves, it’s impossible to “learn” your way to fluency in Spanish. You have to practice!
In this Intercambio Community you’ll find:
- A network of career oriented professionals such as; health care workers, teachers, lawyers, engineers, real estate agents and more that share the goal of taking their communication skills to the next level.
- Weekly opportunities to practice specific language geared toward your profession or more informal conversation.
- A special bilingual community that share the same goal of launching their conversation skills while connecting with others across the Americas.
- To connect with a conversation partner in our private, safe, secure online Spanish & English practice group for professionals.
- The opportunity to match with a partner that is at a similar language level.
- Ability to find a partner with your same profession to practice specific conversations for your profession.
- The opportunity to build a professional relationship with the same career in another country. (Not mandatory, but an awesome perk!)
- Weekly conversation practice that fits your and your partner’s schedules. Spend 1/2 of your time practicing your Spanish with a native Spanish speaker, and the other half of your time helping your partner practice their English.
- Downloadable Conversation templates that include ice-breaker questions, sentence starters, essential vocabulary, and grammar for the weekly topic.

You will have the opportunity to tell us exactly what grammar and vocabulary you need to improve. And we will work these into the weekly topics. This is an opportunity to practice speaking with lots of structure and support in a safe group.
