Destinos: An Introduction to Spanish (High school & older)

I just added this site to the links section (web sites for adults), but I thought it also deserved its own post.

From the web site:

Destinos teaches speaking, listening, and comprehension skills in Spanish. This telenovela, or Spanish soap opera, immerses students in everyday situations with native speakers and introduces the cultures, accents, and dialects of Mexico, Spain, Argentina, and Puerto Rico. Understanding of Spanish and appreciation of many Hispanic cultures increase as students become absorbed in the mysterious and entertaining story. Closed captioning in Spanish can be used as a teaching and literacy resource. The series is also appropriate for teacher professional development.

You can watch all 52 episodes for FREE. All you have to do is sign up for a free membership with (The only email I get from them is a montly newsletter.) I watched them on television when they first came out. I highly recommend adding this to your Spanish learning routine.
