Other Resources

* Duolingo: The very best way for students to learn Spanish is Duolingo. Lessons are bite-sized, you can use it as many times as you want and it has incredible features (such as stories, podcasts, etc.) only for Spanish learning. 
* Basho and Friends Youtube Channel: It has music videos where they can learn a bunch of new words, one song at a time. 
* Easy Spanish Youtube Channel: Strongly recommended for intermediate and advanced learners. They interview people on the streets in order to get to know the Spanish language as it is spoken in everyday life.
