Sometimes, we are told to listen to or watch the news to learn vocabulary and keep updated with the world. However, that is not an easy task! The news language is quite complicated and with a very particular style, for example: "blast" is used instead of "explosion".

I propose a much easier way to have access to news. If you are already familiar with the information and, what is more, that is local and in a cultural context you are familiar with, chances to understand are much bigger.
Have a go with The Local Spain. Check their web, follow them on facebook or twitter! You will love it and will learn loads of new words in a familiar context.
