Wonderful Spanish Language Learning Resources

Shared by a University Spanish Professor

Here is Destinos url:
Click on the "VoD" symbol to right of first lesson and sign up. It was free when I used it last semester. In order to access the "Destinos" videos (which ARE free), one MUST have a DSL connection. Dial-up won't work for the Annerberg offerings. Also, one must purchase the "Destinos" text, if one wants the written component. Public lending libraries sometimes have available both these videos and the corresponding texts.On home page select RELATED RESOURCES then SEE ALL to view what else is available (French, Chinese, German, etc.)
I highly recommend http://www.merlot.org/ It is amazing, not only for Spanish but for much more; excellent resource for teaching. "MERLOT" stands for Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning & On-line Teaching; it was started by a group of educators in northern California and they had to make up title to match the acronym!
http://www.conjuguemos.com/. This is a website to practice conjugating verbs in many tenses in Spanish, French, German and Latin. Instructions below.
http://www.studyspanish.com/ is another great resource for pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, culture, etc. practice. You do NOT have to join this site - just do the FREE stuff; you can take quizzes to test yourself.
These sites are peer reviewed by folks in each field constantly and rated with a star system. Languages are listed under "Humanties" then "World Languages." To streamline search to Spanish only programs, select DEFAULT SORT ORDER BY RATING. Resort by: Select "item type" and GO then make choice for Spanish.
From here I learned about:
http://www.colby.edu/~bknelson/exercises/ojala/index.html which is a superior Spanish learning site. You must go to http://www.colby.edu/~bknelson/exercises/ojala/index.html for "una aventura dominicana!" Select "ejercicios" for links to other of BK Nelson's excellent sites.
http://www.analitica.com/bitblioteca/lorca/romancero.asp is about Federico Garcia Lorca, a Spanish poet; also, go to http://www.dartmouth.edu/~spanmod/modulos/rimas/bio.html for a 1st level Spanish lesson on his poems; they are easy to read and understand. You can listen to some of his poems being read here. Here is one I love:
Rima XXI

¿Qué es poesía?, dices mientras clavas
en mi pupila tu pupila azul.
¡Qué es poesía! ¿Y tú me lo preguntas?
Poesía... eres tú.

(clavar = to pin, to hammer in; pupila = pupil of eye)

I have recently re-discovered http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/spanish/index.shtml the BBC site for Spanish. Go to home page for overview of all it offers - great resource for other things as well. I think this is excellent.
http://conjuguemos.com/ is an excellent verb conjugator site; I think you might be able to register as a TEACHER.
 http://www.studyspanish.com/ is a free on-line Spanish resource/tutorial; has a great pronunciation practice to hear and practice sounds. You can join but lots of great free stuff available for grammar, culture, etc. http://www.studyspanish.com/
http://eleaston.com/ is a great resource for languages. Provides links to many other sites.
http://cvc.cervantes.es/aula/ is also an excellent site for readings at 3 levels. Select "Lecturas Paso a Paso." Also other stuff.
Here are some other websites you might find interesting:
http://museoprado.mcu.es/home.html Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain
http://www.museopicassomalaga.org/ Pablo Picasso Museum in Málaga, Spain
http://www.guggenheim.org/ Guggenheim Museums (one is in Bilbao, Spain)
http://www.geocities.com/sergiozamorasin/tormes.htm Lazarillo de Tormes site (classic Peninsular Spanish tale)
http://www.geocities.com/sergiozamorasin/tormes.htm Mario Vargas Llosa (Peruvian author)
http://www.elcorteingles.es/ Chain of Dept. Stores in Peninsular Spain
(I really like "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" with a very young Antonio Banderas)
http://www.champs-elysees.com/products/spanish/product.aspx Puerta del Sol links - subscription newsletter (expensive)
