Comment: Most of the reading selections can be read and then follwed by listening
activities using the audio files. Even though the reading and listening cover
the same theme, the texts are not identical. The reading text can be used as an
advanced organizer to develop comprehension of the listening skill. The topics
change every week and deal with timely information about events around the
world. Generally, at least one of the readings has the audio component. The
same topics are covered in detail in English if the instructor feels that the
topic requires more in-depth information before or after the target language
reading has been assigned. The audio clips are the voices of Spanish-speaking
people throughout the world which merit the site for having such a remarkable
variety of authentic written and aural texts.

The language notes are invaluable!

Technical Remarks:

The audio clips are clear and precise. It makes it easier to analyze the
speech of the various regional dialects throughout the Spanish-speaking world.
