There are several ways to promote and encourage the learning of a foreign language out of the school time. Some of them might include to watch our favorite animated series or shows with Spanish subtitles (or in Spanish with English subtitles) whenever is possible, listen to music and translate some key words from the lyrics, or setting our home devices (i.e. Ipad or tablet, mobile phone, computer…) as well as our favorite videogames in Spanish language. It is recommended to make an approach where Spanish language can be present in our hobbies or some daily life routines. For instance, if we like to cook we may take the chance to pick a Spanish recipe or/and name the ingredients in Spanish. Small and progressive work towards this approach, sustained in a long term, may have a great impact in a modern foreign language learner.
