Hola Rich,

I saw your Podcast in iTunes. I think your project is great. I am a professor at Western Kentucky University, where I teach Spanish, and Spanish Literature. I completed my Ph.D at the University of Colorado in Boulder, and I am from Spain.

Anyway, I am working on a project that uses Podcasts as well. I will check back to see what you are doing over here.

For milder cases of acne there are over the counter acne treatments and other skin care solutions that contain benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. There are also a variety of on-line ordered products that are very effective, such as Proactive. Remember, pregnant women should avoid products that contain salicylic acid, as it can possibly lead to complications during pregnancy or even birth defects. These are to be applied normally after washing, just like with facial acne solutions.

Hi spanish language lovers :)

AEI is a study abroad agency that works with language schools around the world and offers a 100% free enrollment service for Language Immersion Programs, Study Abroad programs, Au Pair Programs and Language Summer Camps.

There are so many language schools/programs available out there that choosing a good one can be a very difficult and time-consuming task. AEI can save you a lot of time and assist you through the whole process, from finding a school to registration. AEI provides you with accurate quotations including all the costs from the language courses to the accomadation, so that you know right away from the beginning what your expenses will be and how you need to budget.

Check out the list of countries you can discover with AEI at the same time as you study or learn Spanish.

Cheers

Geoff

Great information! Great blog! But what I honestly think is that the easiest method to learn Spanish is still the learn Spanish CD from Rocket Spanish

BBC is a really good free resource for learning Spanish, probably one of the best that i've ever seen (and i've been looking for a long time!) If you're interested in Spanish software, then take a look at one of my new favorites: Rocket Spanish.
