Advanced Spanish Preservation For Short Attention Spans
March 24, 2014 2:47 AM Subscribe
Hi, folks. Through work and study, I achieved fluency in Spanish. In my current job, I was hired to do bilingual work, but I have had very little opportunity to speak Spanish for about six months. I'm worried I may be forgetting Spanish, which is really very bad for me on many levels. Please help me find a few ways to keep in touch with the language.

I like some Spanish fiction writers and I've seen a ton of movies in Spanish. I plan on reading more in Spanish and watching more media in Spanish. I know about reading newspapers in Spanish, etc.
The thing is, given my current life situation, I have a lot of time to muck around on the internet. I have fairly serious distracting events during my time on the Web, so I can't get too too absorbed in things. I'm wondering if folks can recommend some Youtube channels like EatYourKimchi
? Is there a Spanish language equivalent of Metafilter? What out there in Spanish can keep my attention?
I learned Spanish before the world was as online as it is now. I'm sure people are meeting language partners and speaking with them through the net, but I'm not sure how this is done. Can someone fill me in? Is there a site where I can just hire a native speaker in another country to speak with me about challenging topics?
I'd love to hear from others who have rescued themselves from almost forgetting languages. I really need to get back on the wagon!
