Hey! I'm still very much a beginner in Spanish and Duolingo is so helpful for learning. But as I do not know any Spanish speakers myself I was wondering does anyone have any ways they find effective in immersing themselves in the language? I've tried duolingo's immersion bit but large walls of text are very difficult for me to get stuck into.

Thanks, Chris!

You can try things like WeSpeke.com where you are matched with another language learner that is a native in the language you are learning (tandem learning). This helps me a lot to improve.

Watch Spanish TV/Youtube or listen to Spanish radio.... Try borrowing Spanish children's books from your local library.

Also, watch this discussion forum. Every few days someone who is a native Spanish speaker posts wanting to find friends who are native English speakers to chat with to help them learn. There are many more of them than the reverse, so you should quickly have many new friends to chat with.

Well I'm a Spanish speaker and I don't know much people who speaks english. You should listen songs in spanish or see tv novels in youtube ("Telemundo Novelas" has some with english subtitles). By the way, if you would like to talk to practice and help each other let me know! Saludos!
