    I am trying to find tier readings in Spanish for intermediate students on topics such as numbers,days of week ,months of the year, personal information.the home, the weather, school,basically all the topics taught in foreign language Spanish. This would be great for the students to be able to read passages in Spanish to reinforce vocabulary learned in each unit. I have found a few but not on all topics and tiered. Any information would be so greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    This website is such a great resource for me to use with all of the classes I teach! I was hoping for some help finding appropriate, but culturally informative movies for high school juniors and seniors. As per my school I cannot use any movies rated R, but many of the movies that are not rated R are not very culturally informative. I have found a few, but would love a resource of movies to use in the classroom. Thank you for any and all help!

        Hello Again Karen,

        This is what the wonderful community shared with us regarding your query…hope it helps!
        1. There’s a picture book series about chato the cat & his gang not super serious but maybe diff approach?
        2. Check out @luisjrodriguez (on Twitter). He has books, lots of poetry, maybe short stories too?
        3. It’s not a short story, but there’s Vida y Muerte from @TPRSPublishing.
        4. The gang memoir “Always Running” is in Spanish, translated as “La Vida Loca” from Touchstone Books/Simon & Schuster.

    I am looking for a short play or short story of Don Quijote in Spanish that my Spanish 4 class could read. I have looked through your materials and feel like it could be there but I am not seeing it. Do you have one?

    Hi – I’ve been trying to locate a short story I read in a Spanish class in high school. It is about a vain pharmacist who thinks he is so handsome, intelligent and “above” the people in his small, provincial town. Every day he sees a beautiful woman walk by – she’s the shining star in his day – and he thinks about how wonderful it would be to meet her. Finally one day, she comes in to the store and – no spoilers here! :) Can anyone tell me if they recognize this story?

    Thank you!

    I need to take a test for a linguist position (Spanish). Do you have any material that can help me practice but at a high level of comprehension?

    I am looking for a very old play I performed when I was 10 years old. That would be 55 years ago. I think it was called “La Huerfana.” It was about a young girl who’s mother was dying and she goes out in the snow to get help. It was a Christmas play.

      Hola Helen,

      We have looked everywhere and have not been able to find the play you mention. Apologies! We will keep on searching, though, and will report back here if we find anything.
