Mario Sundar's Speakeasy

Spero Ventures. Early LinkedIn, Twitter. These are my thoughts on tech, brand, marketing and community.

¿Hablas español? So does LinkedIn!

Do You? Speak Spanish? Well, I’ve learned French while in high-school and tried to speak really broken español in college, but nothing could prepare me for my terrible audition. A video published on the LinkedIn blog announcing the launch of LinkedIn en español, marks my debut. Check it out below.

I love the intro graphics, my colleague Rob‘s post-production skillz and of course the “flawless” Spanish pronunciation from yours truly as well as Dan, Reid, Patrick, and others. Well, why don’t you just check out the video for yourself. It’s your one chance to catch me spout Spanish in the middle of a terrible hair day! Too bad, we couldn’t get my colleague and friend, Adam Nash, into the mix.

For those who’d just like to check out the Spanish language LinkedIn. There are 2 easy steps:

1. Log into LinkedIn with your existing id.

2. Go here and switch the language field.

What do you think of the video? And, how about my Spanish? Do I have any hope?

  1. Mario, great video..

    Last tuesday we have in Madrid, SPAIN a meeting between Kevin Eyres, Managing Director Europe at LinkedIn and the main spanish bloggers, to have an informal dinner talking about social media and Linkedin.

    It was awesome.

    Kudos for the video goes to our team. In particular, Flo (who’s in the video) and Rob (who did the post-production).

    Glad to hear of your meeting with Kevin. Stay in touch and let me know if you’ve any questions. I may not speak Spanish (yet) but I speak LinkedIn!
