Colby TalkAbroad connects Spanish language learners with native speakers through weekly Skype conversations using the program available at Talkabroad.com. It is beneficial for students preparing to go abroad or those returning from a Spanish speaking country that would like to maintain language skills and embrace cultural connections. Partners reside in Ecuador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, Colombia, and Mexico, so it may be of particular interest to students studying in those countries, though will certainly prove useful to any student of Spanish. Interested students should contact Abbey Wallace for access and more information.
