I have openly shared that I often begin cultural units with little prior background knowledge. If you are like me and are looking for new sources for ideas, this resource is for you!
If you also explore and/or have students present current events, this resource is for you!
News in Spanish is a terrific website that will keep you up-to-date with what’s happening in the Spanish-speaking world. You can either view their archive on their website or sign up for emails to be sent to you. What’s great about this service is that it will provide you with an authentic resource in Spanish, an English version of the same news, and some notes (on vocabulary, grammar, culture, etc.).
Make sure to check it out!
