How to practice conversational Spanish?
What are the most time-efficient ways to improve my conversation skills in Spanish, while I continue to learn Spanish on Duolingo? Anything that fits into no more than 30 minutes a day with the flexibility of not committing to specific hours (talking to others over the web requires scheduling, which i cannot commit to).
You could find a native Spaniard on the web who wants to learn English (for example here on Duolingo :) ) and call/e-mail each other each day, for 30 minutes in Spanish and for 30 minutes in English. (Or 15-15 if you want to stay within your 30 minutes.) You can correct each other and give each other suggestions for proper word choice etc. :)
No prob, but I think if you make a real friend, (s)he won't force you to schedule your chats together if you don't want to. ^^ Apart from that, you could search for other online, perhaps more advanced curseses, or even take up a real class. Or you could go on holiday to Spain or Latin Amerika of course! :) Maybe read a simple Spanish book or listen to Spanish music with lyrics? ^^
