Spanish Language Resources
I've been studying Spanish for a few years now. Here are some of the great resources that I've found along the way...
|https://buddyschool.com/learn/languages-spanish/96||Beginner-Advanced||Paid||buddyschool lets you find tutors on any topic. I cannot recommend highly enough finding a teacher and having regular online lessons.|
|https://www.duolingo.com/||Beginner-Advanced||Free||duolingo is one of the best sites I've come across for practising grammar and vocabulary. There isn't a lot in the way of lesson content, but in terms of working your Spanish muscles, this site is hard to beat.
You can find my duolingo profile at https://www.duolingo.com/jonbriden
||Beginner-Advanced||Paid (free samples)||yabla has great videos for every level. Important for developing your learning skills. You can watch videos on many topics, and there is a game where it plays parts of the video and you must fill in the missing word.|
|http://spanish.about.com/||Beginner-Advanced||Free||about.com has an excellent section for Spanish, with lots of articles on grammar and usage.|
|http://www.studyspanish.com/||Beginner-Advanced||Free / Paid||studyspanish is a site that I used a lot to learn Spanish grammar, including some of the trickier parts of Spanish like Ser vs Estar, and the subjunctive.|
|http://www.spanishdict.com/||Beginner-Intermediate||Free / Paid||spanishdict used to have lots of great video lessons for free. They've since made that a paid service and rebranded it as fluencia. I'm sure it's very good (but haven't paid for it). I still use it as a quick and easy dictionary and verb conjugator.|
|http://www.rae.es/recursos/diccionarios/drae||Intermediate-Advanced||Free||Diccionario de la lengua española is the definitive dictionary of the Spanish language. It is in Spanish, so you do need to have a good reading level in Spanish to use it. I find it useful when I want a more concise definition of a word than is found in English-Spanish dictionaries (like SpanishDict).
The Real Academia Española also has a number of other useful resources available.
|http://www.bbc.com/mundo||Intermediate-Advanced||Free||BBC Mundo provides news in Spanish. Expand your vocabulary, and broaden your knowledge of current affairs in Latin America and Spain.|
|http://www.ngenespanol.com/||Intermediate-Advanced||Free||National Geographic in Spanish has lots of interesting content. A great place to practice reading nd expanding your vocabulary.|
|http://www.corpusdelespanol.org/||Intermediate-Advanced||Free||Corpus del Español is a corpus of a large number of Spanish-language texts. I find it really useful for finding real world examples of word use and grammar. The POS (part-of-speech) search is really useful. You can do a few searches before you'll need to sign up for a FREE account.|
