Thanks for posting. You have some great ideas. I am using Quizlet for learning new words. It's a free website for flashcards and has a companion app. I am also using Mi Vida Loca on the BBC website and the Spanish Easy Step by Step workbook, both of which are fun and informative.

glad you found my blog interesting, I have tried quiz let briefly and it seemed really nicely made but a bit confusing I got frustrated not being able to make picture flashcards, I really like visual stuff to link to my vocabulary.

that workbook sounds interesting, I tried to find it on google but couldn't, is it european spanish?

Here's the amazon name for the workbook: Easy-Spanish-Step-By-Step-Barbara-Bregstein. I don't think it specifies which kind of Spanish we are learning. I'm only on chapter 4 so I haven't gotten to the verbs yet. Also have you checked out instreamia.com? There's several complete Spanish courses on it for free, and an interesting format.

thanks for the website and workbook, I will look both up, I really think a work book of grammar exercises would really help me, I just need to make double sure its european grammar as I am confused enough as it is with grammar, and even though the grammar is similar no matter which country I believe in spain they use slightly different verb forms like vosotros etc,

that instremia site interesting, I think I will have a try with it, its interesting hearing the native speeds and pronunciations

I just checked the book - and yes, it does give the vosotros conjugation for the verbs. Some of the vocabulary is a little different from the words we learn on duolingo. Also, the Mindsnacks app for the iPad is awesome.

oh thanks really useful, it sounds european spanish then by the sound of it as duolingo isn't totally european its more latin american. I also downloaded mind snacks, looks useful!

I enjoy discovering these useful little tools
