#ViveElEspañol and win a Polaroid
by Diego on Wednesday, June 22, 2016
Many of you are already in the don Quijote schools and destinations that you have chosen to learn Spanish. No doubt you are having unforgettable experiences getting to know a new culture, and of course capturing every second of your entire stay by posting and sharing to your social networks. Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter... All rife with beautiful photos of that building, monument, or plaza that caught your attention and that you'll always remember fondly when you think back on your Spanish course.
So what if we told you that all those images could come with a prize? We want that you share with us all the memorable places and moments that caught your attention; simply upload a photo or video with the hashtag #ViveElEspañol to your profiles and you could win the latest edition Polaroid camera. Easy, right?
Each day we will select the best picture, and at the end of summer we'll pick the winner among all the best. Your photo could win you a fantastic Polaroid to capture all your memories.
What are you waiting for? Post your best photos and videos (20 seconds max.) and share your best summer moments with us, and don't forget #ViveElEspañol!
