A Spanish language exchange could be a website or an app where you can meet a Spanish native speaker either in person or online. How does it work a Spanish exchange work?

How to meet people to speak Spanish in your own city?
There is a popular website called http://www.meetup.com that is fascinating because you can find different opportunities to go to restaurants, coffee places or event dance place to practice your Spanish with native speakers. Depending on the city you can find people to exchange English, German or any other language for Spanish. This happens in cities where the tourism is big like Ney York, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, etc. Some other cities like Chicago, which doesn’t have so much international tourism you can find Spanish native people looking to make new friends.

This website is on many countries in the world, therefore everybody has the opportunity.
