Finding a good blog for teaching is a difficult task because it has to fit 80% of what you need. (Thank you for reading this blog by the way!)
For 5th graders, one project is about travelblog and making difference between our country and English-speaking one:
I searched and searched. I went directly for Award-wining blogs (Yes, there are awards… I am hoping for my nomination one day).
The best way to make contrast between two cultures is for an outsider living in this new community. I found one totally winner.
- All about Puebla This blog is from girl who came to learn Spanish and stayed. It’s very good. Personally, I like the post Local Lingo: How to Talk Like a Poblano. It was perfect to talk about language and culture.
- The guide of travellling and tourism Lonely Planet also has a list of Travelblogs about Mexico entitled “The Blogs we like” also United States, Australia, and Great Britain.
Other good post:
- It’s not a good blog (lack updating) , but I laughed so hard with this post: One of the best English to American translations I’ve ever seen
I love Japan, I read religiously a couple of blogs about Spanish speakers living in Asia:
- Award winner blogger celebrity Flappy and his blog: Un Español en Japon. Beautiful pictures and corky stuff about Japan, also history, food, and lots of cool things.
- Azul from Paraguay, share her life and family in Vida en Japon. Sadly she doesn’t post very frequently.
- Nora’s blog is good too. It’s Una Japonesa en Japon.
This one is the coolest thing ever… A family travelling around the world just because… That so sweet. Check it out Vuelta al Mundo en Familia. It’s in Spanish but it’s worth mentioning.
