Retirement Yenta is trying her best to learn Spanish. Oy veh! (¡Veh de Oy!) It’s hard to learn a language later in life! With this in mind, your dear Yenta was going to recommend you hire a conversation partner to practice speaking Spanish with. But, then she remembered how much she likes to save a buck, and she had a GREAT idea. Retirement Yenta recommends you become a conversation partner! You can trade conversation partnering with a Spanish speaking person who is learning English. This a great service to provide to someone learning your mother tongue, and you will get something out of it too. Now, keep in mind, dear Readers, you will need to choose someone who speaks the language you are trying to learn! Spanish speakers will not make good conversation partners if you are trying to learn Mandarin Chinese (unless they actually speak Mandarin)!
