NY Times Launches Spanish-Language Site

nytimespanish

The New York Times has just launched a Spanish-language site.

It offers both articles translated from English versions and original content.

Having good Spanish translations of their English articles can be great tools for English-language development, and the Spanish articles can also be used by ELLs to help develop background knowledge on a specific topic being studied.

I’m adding this info to The Best Multilingual & Bilingual Sites For Math, Social Studies, & Science.

Thanks to FishBowl/NY for the tip.
