A Redditor’s Guide to Mexico City

This week in the STU: 

  • Around the web: Día de los Muertos, free Spanish classes, and some research
  • An easy to share resource for students that are struggling to develop a Spanish accent 
  • From reddit with love: what to do next time you’re in Mexico City

Around the Web

:ghost: Spanish teachers are creating lots of fun content for day of the dead. These are a few of our favorites: Digital Altar, Infographic, Video, and Spooky Video.

:teacher: A school in Peekskill, NY is offering free Spanish courses to student’s parents

:shield:Cambridge University published a study exploring how long it takes to learn a second language. Long story short, it’s a more complicated than simply studying for 600 hours.


Quick Share

Share this pronunciation resource with students that aren’t picking up the Spanish accent as quickly as their peers. It’ll allow them to practice speaking common Spanish sounds, vocabulary, and phrases from the comfort of their own home.

Ciudad de México

We’ve been working from Mexico City for over a month now and are always looking for new things to explore. In searching for interesting places to visit we stumbled across one adventurous redditor’s guide to the city. If you’re planning a trip to Mexico City in the near future, it’s a great read/skim for ideas.
