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:
¿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)
Here are some other websites you might find interesting:
(I really like "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" with a very young Antonio Banderas)
If you would like to practice or better learn Spanish or to use the ASCII Accent Codes for writing Spanish, please see those sections of our web site. There are also pages of Spanish Liturgical Services, the Scriptures in Spanish, Articles about the Orthodox Church in Spanish and information about Mexico and the Church in Mexico to help you learn more! The On-line Language Translator links may also be helpful to you in your studies.
