20 minute Spanish class you can do in Chicago subway
20 Spanish class you can do in Chicago subway besides the Spanish classes that you take. Everyday you can do something different so that you don’t get bored.

The other thing you can do in the subway is to do your homework. We share everything online, so you can read it if you cannot write because you are not sitting down.
