I speak, you speak, we all speak for free

Nearly on holidays but one final link to an article in El Pais (in Spanish) on a new website aimed at giving Spanish speakers more opportunities to speak in English with native speakers via videoconferencing software. It is free but of course you have to pay something in return. In the fashion of good old face to face “intercambios” or exchanges, the person who speaks English to you will expect the opportunity to practise Spanish in return. The site is at: http://verbling.com/ and the article which continues to discuss the necessity but also lack of English in Spain is at: http://tinyurl.com/3r43cxk
