To improve a language, you need to work it from different perspectives. Nowadays, we are lucky to find many free resources available worldwide.
We will begin with DonQuijote, a webpage that contains many resources, all of them about Spanish learning and its reinforcement. Out of all the resources found, we highlight:

The listening is a very important part of the language learning process. A good way to improve it is by listening to audio podcasts. In Spanish Obsessed, you’ll find many audio podcasts ordered by levels (beginner, intermediate and advance). If you find more entertaining listening to the radio, you can practice from Radio Ambulante a podcast that features Latin American stories from all Spanish-speaking countries, including the United States.
What about music? Don’t you think that music is a nice resource for practicing a language? In Audiria you can discover different songs about Spanish and Latin cultures.
If you rather know about the Spanish culture, you can use the country’s television channels available online. You can try Atresmedia where you can find both television and radio, cinema and advertising, or Mitele where you have access to series, programs and movies.
Conversing with native speakers is always the best way to practice. They are the ones who are going to help us to improve and correct our Spanish mistakes. Resources such as Verbling allow, in a click, the access to a people community who want to learn languages. Don’t hesitate and try, you’ll like it.
