Don Quijote en YouTube de la mano de la RAE

A global reading of Don Quijote on YouTube. The old and new coming together…

Here’s an excerpt from the article on BBC Mundo:

Las aventuras del famoso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha, héroe de la lengua española, se trasladan a internet, en la primera lectura global de la obra de Miguel de Cervantes en YouTube.

La iniciativa de la Real Academia Española (RAE) y el canal de videos YouTube, comenzó este jueves, y contará con la participación de 2.149 internautas de todo el mundo.

Cada voluntario deberá leer fragmentos de El Quijote para recrear, en video, la lectura completa de la novela, y luego subirlo a YouTube.

What’s especially helpful for those who are studying the language is that you can read along by clicking on the link below each video: Versión para imprimir.
