7 Instagram Accounts To Follow If You’re Learning Spanish

It’s easy to get into a language bubble on social media. There’s a pretty good chance everyone you follow mostly — if not entirely — posts in English. If you’re interested in learning a new language, you’ll want to smash right out of that bubble. And following Spanish Instagram accounts that appeal to both your learning and your other interests is a great way to incorporate Spanish into your everyday life. Here are a few very different options to get you started.

For The Language-Focused Instagrammer

If you’re a beginner and just want to start building your vocabulary, we recommend @spanish_english_rosie. Each week, she chooses a different term or theme to focus on. Then, each day of the week, she has a related post. It’s a convenient account to follow to give yourself a little dose of Spanish every day.

For The Comic Reader

There are lots of webcomic artists on Instagram, and they work in any number of languages. The account @72kilos is especially good because each comic usually only has one or two short phrases, and the comics themselves are very cute.

For The Feminist Reader

If you’re already a reader of online publications like Bustle and The Cut, you can add some Spanish media to that list with @freeda_es. There’s a mixture of generally self-empowering or funny memes, along with more serious work (this past year they created a half-hour documentary about being a woman in Kabul).

For The BuzzFeed Bilingual

BuzzFeed launched their English-Spanish Instagram @perolike back in 2016 along with a YouTube page and other verticals. It’s designed specifically for English-speaking members of the Latinx community. It’s got a mixture of languages, and a wide range of content (it’s on BuzzFeed, so the demographics skew younger). The name itself is inspired by the Spanglish term pero like. 

For The Rap and Social Justice Fan

René Pérez Joglar, who goes by @residente on Instagram, is a famous rapper in Latin America. In addition to posting about his music, Joglar also talks about social problems that are happening. He posts in both Spanish and English, which can help you out while you’re learning the language.

For The Person Who Likes A Little Bit Of Everything On Spanish Instagram

A post shared by Cultura Colectiva (@culturacolectiva) on Jun 8, 2019 at 5:36pm PDT

This is kind of a broad category, but @culturacolectiva is pretty hard to pin down. They post about art, LGBTQ life, popular television shows, wildlife and more. They have over 2 million followers, though, so you can be sure what they’re posting is viral at the least.

For The Cat And Meme Lover

Want to use Instagram for cats? We’ve got you covered there too. The account @gatitesuwu just posts images of cats with captions in Spanish. Is it totally appropriate? No. Is it the fastest way to learn a language? Also probably not. But it sure is fun!
