Being an expat can be great, especially if you speak the local language well. But sometimes it’s nice to speak your native language. If you’re interested in meeting other expats, join InterNations, the network founded in 2007 by three German entrepreneurs who have lived and worked abroad. InterNations is the first international expatriate community and connects expats with similar interests. Local branches host regular events and activities so that members can meet, network, and socialize.
With more than 1.3 million members in over 390 communities, InterNations is the world’s largest and most trusted online and offline expatriate network. There are communities in Madrid, Mexico City, Montevideo, and many other Spanish-speaking cities.
