Reading and Vocabulary

Spanish Language and Culture by Barbara Kuczun

This site provides learning modules which inform Spanish learners about popular poems, songs, cultural events, etc. while focusing on a particular verb tense. The site also provides practice conjugating in any tense by filling in boxes with verbs. This resource is appropriate for beginning and intermediate Spanish learners.
SpanishDict 
This website is focused on English to Spanish translation and also publishes articles about Spanish grammar and conjugation explanations. SpanishDict is a very comprehensive dictionary, providing definitions, example sentences, examples from the web, conjugation in each verb tense, and pronunciation audio for any word looked up into the search bar. The website also offers vocabulary practice for introductory Spanish speakers, and mini-quizzes to practice basic conjugations and prevent common grammatical mistakes. This resource is appropriate for all levels of Spanish speakers due to its multiple uses, however, its interactive sections are primarily useful to beginner and intermediate Spanish speakers.

Grammar

SpanishChecker
