The website of the Latin Recording Academy has undergone a serious makeover, and I have to say it is COOL. More importantly, the nominations for the Latin Grammys are out!! This is an important way for me to see what’s new and what’s popular-I’m always embarrassed at how few names I even recognize on the […]
I’m not sure why, but in my students’ flurry of Spanish-language corporate sites they used for this project, we didn’t run across Nickelodeon’s Mundonick.com, probably because I was looking on Nickelodeon’s US page and not finding a language change, so I figured they oddly didn’t have one.

If you’ve taught from a textbook for very long, you’ve found that they’re just not motivating to students who aren’t already self-motivated, and […]
I’m constantly looking for communicative, interesting tasks for my students to either create or complete. My Spanish 2 project for the 3rd quarter is an internet scavenger-hunt-type worksheet. Students choose a Spanish-language website and then create a series of questions for another student to complete. The questions can involve playing a game, listening to music, […]
