Intercambios or language exchanges, are popular ways to practice speaking Spanish as well as to make friends.

Every night a different bar hosts a language exchange.  It is easy to attend and usually free, other than buying a drink.

Intercambios tend to stop or be emptier during the university holidays.

The following groups are popular:

  • Mondays – 8PM – The Irish Theater / 10PM – Super Ocho
  • Tuesdays – 10PM – La Hacienda
  • Wednesdays – 10PM – Erasmus Cafe

If going to an intercambio isn’t for you then visit any pub, bar or club a day strike up a conversation. The use of apps like HelloTalk (language exchange app) and Tinder are other popular ways of meeting people both to exchange languages and to start friendships.
