Audio Recording of Articles
It would be nice to be able to listen to articles read by a native speaker to develop our listening skills. For example, when translating an article from Spanish to English there would be an associated Spanish audio uploaded by duolingo user whose native language was Spanish. Likewise, as a English native speaker I could upload audio for English articles that English learners could benefit from.
That would be cool and interesting to listen to an article. Perhaps they could also do classic stories in Spanish or short songs/lullabies in Spanish. This would very much help my listening skills! :)
Seems like a good idea. The nationality of the speaker could be revealed to the listeners.
There are some really good Spanish-English blogs with audio available, you might want to check these out: http://ssl4you.blogspot.fi/ (some minor mistakes in the English translations, but the topics are interesting) http://www.thespanishblog.com/spanish-courses/spanish-english-parallel-texts-city-guides/
