don Quijote on Pinterest
As you already know, Pinterest is a social network, a tool designed for helping you organize and share things that you like or that interest you.
For example, you can create boards and organize them by topics, hobbies, experiences... and from there you can organize your daily life. You can also see other people's boards and share experiences and interests with them by repinning them and marking them as "like".
At don Quijote, we´ve created a notice board for each city and for every one of our Spanish schools, where you can share photos, places of interest, fun facts about cities, classes... We've also created a general board where you can find useful resources such as grammar and vocabulary diagrams, interesting facts about the Spanish speaking world...
