In my opinion the whole point of learning a language is being able to speak to people. To get to know people somebody has to start speaking. The best way to get to know people is to ask them questions about themselves. Hopefully they will not just give "yes" or "no" answers they will tell you something about themselves. Hopefully they will ask you questions about yourself.
You can use the questions in this lesson to start conversations. One of the problems with speaking to a native speaker of another language when your own level of their language is not very high is that when they answer you will not understand the answer. Don't worry about this. You have to start somewhere. Even if you don't fully understand the answer you should continue. What have you got to lose? You might have to occasionally pretend to understand more than you really do.
Some people are better than others at speaking to people from other cultures. People who have a lot of empathy will speak clearly, not too fast and will say things as simply as possible but on the other hand some people may find it impossible to slow down even if you ask them. Some people are "simpáticos" (friendly) whereas other people can be antipáticos (unfriendly). Some people are "sociable" (sociable) wheras other people can be "poco sociable" (antisocial).
Where can you find Spanish speakers to talk with? You can pay for a private Spanish teacher over skype. Find people on facebook groups. Use a bilingual chatroom.
