Sources of Spanish Articles for immersion?

I usually find articles for immersion by googling a topic (using Spanish keywords) and "site:.gov". In America, websites produced by the US Government are usually considered open domain and thus legal for Duo to use for educational purposes.

This led me to the US Embassy's network of sites. Here's Panama's page. Just replace "Panama" in the URL with another Spanish-speaking country, and you can delve into their website. Here's their landing page for the Western Hemisphere. They usually post news about the country in question, including things relevant to tourism and business.

I know I've seen other forum posts about finding legal articles for Immersion use, but I can't find those posts now. This is the only post I can find about the legality of uploaded documents. Anyone have any other resources to share?

that is a very interesting article! if you really want to immerse yourself, simply purchase books in different languages......of course, starting from the bottom up with the easiest, most basic books. Or, if you want it checked and graded, then you can sign up for sites like LingQ, etc. that are solely for immersion. ;)

Libraries are great for finding books in your target language--that is, if they have a decent-sized selection of books in that language. I'm talking Duo's Immersion section though, that's a little different from just reading on your own. Thanks for the LingQ suggestion.

Other sources of material for reading on your own:

ReadLang, which is sort of like Immersion in that you can tap and get a translation, but no translation for Duo XP and no community judgment

TweenTribune, which is aimed at kids so the language complexity will be lower

This Dou forum post has a bunch of short story sites

Yes...I knew what you meant. I am actually immersing myself by traveling to South America this week! I am very excited because I have never been there! Going to a predominantly Spanish-speaking country is a great way to immerse yourself in a language! ;) There are lots of other sites that immerse students better than Duo does......those are sites like LingQ, FluentU, etc. :D Adios amiga!

I am going to Argentina, but on the way I will stop in Peru and Chile. It is very exciting. ;) I am leaving this week on saturday.......if you do not live in North America (where I live) I guess that would be a different day or season for you.:)
