Tip 3. Learning Spanish by Talking to Distant Invisible People

With long distance telephone services like Yak charging only 5 to 10 cents a minute, you can speak Spanish with anybody you like.

Try an activity like one of these. You might spend 35 cents a call.

Call up a green grocer in Little Havana in Miami and ask how the weather is or what's on special today.

Call the Colon Opera House in Buenos Aires (Do the online tour first then call to ask how the renovations are going.)

Try calling the Mayor of Mexico City's Secretary about whatever you like. Who knows, if you call during lunch, the Mayor might pick up your call himself. (His name is Marcelo Ebrard; he's very nice).

The point is, of course, that the world is full of people who would love to talk to us and we now have the means to do just that.
