www.verbix.com

Click on "Online conjugator" and you can conjugate any verb into ALL its forms. It is available for LOTS of languages too, not only Spanish (including Catalan, etc.)

Great idea for a thread!

All mine are language learning or intercambio related besides one.

http://www.vocabulix.com - vocab trainer where you can learn 2000+ words. I have done all 85 tests at least 4 times each. They also have a verb conjugation trainer.

http://www.sharedtalk.com
- exchange your English for someone else's Spanish online. I have 10 people on msn I have met through this... it's a great way to pass time and practise.

http://babelnet.sbg.ac.at/Carlitos/ - not a great design but I have learnt a lot about Spanish from this site.

http://www.jabeltinamit.com/spanish_...ala_prices.htm learn online on Skype with a teacher from Guatemala. $US140 for 20 hours. Havent used it but would like to some day

http://rea.ccdmd.qc.ca/ri/Expression...sw=1280&sh=800 training on 338 Spanish expressions and their meanings in English

http://www.lingolex.com/spanish.htm I have learnt a lot from this simple site. Lessons in ser v estar, subjunctive, plus lots of topic specific vocab lists

http://lingro.com/ Lingro. This site is amazing especially for beginners. If you want to read the news, visit it through lingro.com and you'll be able to click any word you want to see the translation!

Here's a web site with links to many others with forums which focuses on architecture, the latest building projects and transportation projects going on in Spain.

Alguien sabe que es el mejor sitio para citas (frases) en la lengua española?

Me gusta una cita de Groucho Marx: "Encuentro la televisión muy educativa. Cada vez que alguien enciende el aparato, me voy a otra habitación y leo un libro."

Hi, I've found this site useful in the past, when moving to Madrid:

http://www.madridinsider.com/

If you click on >Work and Residency > Teach in Spain > English Teacher Advice, there's quite a lot of useful info for those wanting to find work in this field. (there are other categories in the Work and Residency, I don't know how useful they are though).
Also >Student & Student Life > Language Schools displays a useful list of potential employers !

For jobs in Spain teaching English is TEFL and limited Spanish all that is needed?

You'll probably survive but one of the main complaints amongst English speakers trying to learn beginner's Spanish is that the teacher can't adequately explain things to them - as their Spanish isn't good enough. Sort of Catch 22 of the language teaching world.
I'd imagine you'd have a similar problem teaching Spaniards English.
for more advanced students the problem would be less.

(I'm not saying they are right to want this - one of our most successful Spanish learners was a Polish lady (without English) who HAD to learn)
