Any ideas of the good places to find public domain or creative commons material, for the immersion section, other than Wikipedia? Particularly in Spanish, but also French.

There are many news sites in Spanish who publish their articles under creative commons :D For example:

If anyone has more recommendations, also for the other languages, I too would be happy to hear them :D

I didn't realize biobiochile.cl was CC. Interesting. Any idea why those outlets chose to do that?

I find Wikinews to be easier to translate than Wikipedia.

http://fr.wikinews.org/wiki/Accueil

In fact the José María Villalta interview I uploaded yesterday still needs some work if you want to take a shot at that:

Go to Google for your target language (eg. https://www.google.es/ for Spanish) and put in a topic that interests you (gardening, science, sports, whatever), followed by "creative commons" in quotes. That's how I've found CC sites in Spanish and Portuguese to use here.

I'm just starting out, but the site that got me interested in Duolingo in the first place was the BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/languages/index.shtml

Besides news articles and videos in multiple languages, they also have a beta site for Knowledge & Learning - Here's the link to their Modern Foreign Languages:

I apologize in advance if you get side tracked for a few hours... :>p
