Read about Greg and Nikki's travels through Spain and South and Central America! You might just pick up some pointers that make your trip there easier. Greg is an incredible resource for Drupal programming and if he wasn't a damed good Spanish speaker already, he will be more than that by the time their trip is done!


Puerta del Sol is a monthly audio and print magazine on a variety of topics delivered on CDs along with accompanying booklets. The format is a little much for beginners, but once you're able to understand some of the language, this is probably one of the best methods of learning, next to having willing native speakers around! In addition to the magazine stories, there is music with the lyrics in the booklets, and a vocabulary section that covers the vocabulary that is used in the articles to better help you understand what you are hearing and reading.
