Free resources for learning Spanish
Here's a list of sites I used while I was learning Spanish, might be useful to you guys :) I also made some listening exercises and put them there on the top left.
Thanks, I'll bookmark it.
Curious, what do you think about Google Sites overall?
Hey vce10, google sites is alright. It's easier to use than say, Wordpress. I always recommend it to people who want to make a site and have never done it before. And there are loads of free themes to choose from so you can get something that looks quite nice and minimal, and you can directly edit the HTML. So yeah, I have no problems with it. They don't let new users link it with their ad-sense account, so if that's what you are looking for better to go somewhere else. But to make a penny from ad sense you really need to have massive amounts of traffic. My big fear with anything from google is they have this habit of abandoning any project that doesn't get used by millions of people (buzz, wave, glass), they don't care what that means for the few thousand who do use it. This makes me reluctant to start anything new with them. I kind of expect to wake up one morning to an email telling me I have a week before they delete everything.
Recently I found this channel on YouTube while looking for videos that might explain grammar in simple terms. he has a ton of videos and is fairly clear in the way he explains things. Though some of the lessons are rudimentary, they are enjoyable to watch simply because of her quirkiness. Especially with the way she pronounces phrases using our forms. It is worth checking out. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTst8ENk-y1WSHr8ojEptPQ
I put together what I believe is a comprehensive list of all of the free online resources to learn Spanish, including video, audio, apps, courses, dictionaries, websites, textbooks ... you name it. The complete list is here: http://gratisglobal.com/learn-spanish-free/
If I missed anything at all, please let me know so I can add it. My criteria are that the resource must be free, useful and high quality. I do include apps and programs with the "freemium model" as long as the free offering is substantial enough.
Hope this is helpful.
