Here's one of a few notices announcing plans by the Instituto Cervantes to create a new portal called Practica Español to learn Spanish for free starting next year. At their official site it says that the material will be targeted at users of other languages, "the most used in the world", which is a bit vague but perhaps they haven't decided exactly how many languages to create content in either. If the new site ends up being something like Deutsche Welle then it would be great not only to learn Spanish but also to practice any of the other languages that it offers the courses for, but when these sites are not done well (too much flash and far too little content for example) they really are an eyesore. So let's hope they do a good job making it.
