Gifts for Language Learning
Hi! I'm looking for good books, etc. for language learning:) The languages in mind are Spanish(advanced) and Portuguese(elementary) Comment your thoughts and recommendations below. Thanks!
If you know the recipient's taste in books, perhaps a Spanish translation of a favorite, or a Spanish author in the original language? You might also look for games or software for learning, like Manzanas a Manzanas (Para Niños) or Pimsleur if you have the cash. Movies or magazine subscriptions in the target language could be a good immersion without being too exhausting. Podcast subscriptions might be nice--we got someone a subscription to News In Slow Spanish, and that was well-received.
Digital media has changed language learning IMHO. There are so many creative offerings that are available for computers or smart devices, that the print offerings can seem stodgy. But you're in a better position to judge what the recipient would appreciate.
