I really love this post about "leer vs. leerse." If you are an advanced Spanish learner, you have certainly come across this scenario. This post beautifully explains the difference between these two forms of the verb "leer."
Are you interested in learning Spanish but need a more structured course to help you get started? I have a great beginning Spanish curriculum that is ideal for the school-age or adult learner. The focus of the curriculum is to learn the basics to actually communicate in the language. Lessons are fun and are infused with language and culture. Contact me for more information on the classes I offer and how I can cater to your individual learning needs.
Are you an ESL learner who needs help with crafting a solid thesis statement? Please check out this very informative website with useful video explanations that break down what a thesis statement is, what a good thesis statement looks like, and why the United States uses this style of academic writing (linear logic).
This website has excellent information on how to correctly cite APA style in your academic papers:
I highly recommend WordReference.com for Spanish language learners. There you will find excellent and thorough definitions of Spanish words, conjugation charts, and the extremely useful forums. The forums are great for explanations of idiomatic expressions and other topics that a dictionary cannot fully explain. Check it out!
