Family & Relationships

Topic specific Spanish practice exercises

One of the most common motivators to learn Spanish is to be able to speak with a family member, a friend or a romantic interest in their native language. It's a fact that learning a new language opens up a world of possibilities to meet new people or strengthen the relationships we currently have with our loved ones. Learn how to talk about your family or your significant other in Spanish with these exercises while practising and expanding your vocabulary.
