I wish I could find ways to practice my Spanish!
We heard you! Check out the activities that are taking place this month in our Spanish community:
Every Monday we have a new podcast episode available in most podcast platforms! You can also watch the video version of the podcast in our YouTube channel How to Spanish Podcast.

THIS MONTH IN HOW TO LEARN SPANISH
We have another YouTube channel where we do livestreams and Spanish lessons: How to Learn Spanish!
This month we will study some special expressions that use PARA and POR. The premiere for those videos will be on Tuesday the 14th and Tuesday the 28th at 7:30 pm CDT. We will be online answering your questions and comments in the live chat.
Please watch these other videos where we explain the rules for por and para, in preparation for this month’s lessons. You may also want to set a reminder for the premiere of our next video.

THIS MONTH’S RECOMMENDATION
José José fue uno de los cantantes en español más importantes en la historia de la música mexicana. Sus canciones son conocidas por la mayoría de la gente en México. Muchos artistas contemporáneos han hecho otras versiones de sus canciones. Por ejemplo, la playlist que compartimos contigo es el volumen 1 de un disco de tributo que hicieron a José José muchos artistas.
