Social media can be an effective way to connect with other teachers and parents and find inspiration for teaching language to kids. There are many Facebook pages with Spanish teaching resources. The content of these pages varies a lot. For example, I use the Spanish Playground Facebook page to compile very practical resources – material that I can easily draw on for a lesson. I do not post much in the way of research or general articles, but I really appreciate friends who do. It occurred to me that I should share a few of the Facebook pages with Spanish resources that I turn to repeatedly for ideas, information and support. Please add your recommendations in comments!
