Although these exercises were created for college courses, they start at the beginning and provide both grammatical and cultural information, illustrated with beautiful graphics. Among the topics of the "study modules" are Day of the Dead, the festival of San Fermin in Pamplona, and street kids in Colombia. There are extensive audio files (these require Quicktime) as well as online practice for grammar.

tag(s): spanish (109)

This Google feature allows international or ESL/ELL students to search for specifically designated pages (i.e., newspapers) in their own languages (i.e., French or Swahili) produced in specific countries (Ivory Coast or Kenya). Options include setting the interface to any language, getting on-the-spot translation, and also viewing the home country Google interface (i.e., www.google.cg - Republique du Congo) without having to import language scripts for the computer.

tag(s): news (262), newspapers (95)

In the Classroom

Could be used as an exciting tool in the foreign language classroom! You may have to talk to your network adiministrator on filtered school district networks, if they have blocked translation tools to prevent students from "doing" assignments via these tools. This is a challenging choice to make: enable cheating vs. enabling a valuable learning tool.
