One teacher, created an Instagram account for a character in one of her TPRS stories, called Vicky_La_Vaca, and posts pictures of this stuffed animal in various places, with the captions, of course, in Spanish.
Encourage students to find their more accounts or hashtags of their own interests. If they like movies, have them find an account about películas. Do they like comics? Have them find an account that posts about los superheroes! Do they like fashion, check out #moda!
