Spanish Friday

Okay I tried to come up with a super chévere name for this, but unfortunately as far as alliteration goes, I think I’m out of luck. “Viernes Vernáculo” is not very catchy, is it?

So, here’s the thing – when I blogged in Spanish one Friday and said that I would be doing so on Fridays from now on, quite a few people expressed interest in doing it on their blogs as well. So here is how it will work if you want to participate.

Every Friday is “Spanish Friday” (#SpanishFriday on Twitter.) All you have to do is write your usual blog post in Spanish that day. The purpose is to practice, improve and learn. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a native speaker or if Spanish is your second language. It doesn’t matter if you’re Latino/a or a Gringo/a. Some of us are going to make mistakes, from missing an accent to completely screwing up a verb conjugation – but that’s okay… I don’t want anyone to feel shy about doing this.

Remember, “La práctica hace al maestro” – (Practice makes perfect.)

RULES FOR SPANISH FRIDAY

• Go to your blog on Fridays.

• Blog in Spanish.

• Some ideas: The blog can be a written post to practice written Spanish, a vlog to practice spoken Spanish, a podcast of you reading from a book in Spanish to practice your reading skills – Be creative!

• Tag your post with “Spanish Friday”

• If you tweet about it on Twitter use the hashtag #SpanishFriday

• Visit Latinaish.com on Fridays to leave your link in comments so we can all visit each other! (Please leave the link to your exact post URL.)

• If you’d like, put the image below on your blog post or in your blog’s sidebar – (Not mandatory!)
