Spanish Language Exercises Welcome to the Spanish Language Exercises web page, hosted by Ursinus College. This site presents a series of language exercises for the purpose of facilitating the learning and teaching of Spanish in the Internet environment. These exercises were born out of the need to incorporate new materials into my teaching practices and because of my curiosity about the emergence and popularity of new technologies. Rather than presenting here a comprehensive display of grammar exercises, I offer examples of different approaches to common language challenges for the foreign student of Spanish. My intention is, thus, to share ideas with instructors and students alike, leaving to the former the pedagogical decisions of how to better utilize these exercises, and hoping that the latter will really benefit from this hypertextual experience. I welcome everyone's ideas, questions and comments about any aspect of this site.
