Diosdado Corrales con Practicing Spanish based on ComicsThe idea of creating a material for advanced learners, and for those people that have always chosen to keep practicing Spanish online has been always a flashing sign in my mind.
Condorito is a comic strip that is meant to be a representation of the Latin American people. This awesome funny bird was created by the Chilean cartoonist René Ríos. In spite of his Chilean origin, Condorito is very popular throughout Latin America, where the character is considered part of the general popular culture, and has a growing readership in the United States as well.
What amazes me from this comic strip is the truly Spanish language used in each of its editions. This is the language I use in my classes to teach my students the richness of my mother tongue: Condorito is a wonderful source for my teaching material.
