Resources & Links

If you are looking for Spanish videos in one easy to find place, please look under the last tab entitled "Spanish Videos."  I have uploaded several videos on how to say hello (good morning, good afternoon & good night), good-bye, count to ten in Spanish, colors, and how to introduce yourself.
 
In class I have been using many videos produced by Calico Spanish.  My Symbaloo page contains the videos I use in class in one easy to find place so that you do not have to search them out on YouTube.  I have edited the videos so that my students only see what they need to see and hear.
 
Below are a few other resources that I have heard about from my colleagues. HPISD purchased a teacher subscription of Rockalingua since it was very popular with students during the 2015 - 2016 launch year.
 
  • Rockalingua (certain items are free & individual memberships can be purchased)
 
  • Dallas Public Library language learning software "Mango" (free to members)
