Spanish Grammar Exercises is an online tutorial of interactive learning activities and study modules. The site is a comprehensive compilation of activities that reflect the themes in the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century (1999). Thus, in addition to activities that have a particular grammar focus, communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities are fully integrated into the material. The site is rich in cultural materials including videos, music, sound files, and pictures that are coordinated with the specific grammatical focus. Students also work on reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills as they explore the material. Many of the activities include individualized feedback for right and wrong answers, the ability to self correct, and ample opportunities for reflection and writing. The depth and breath of the site makes it possible for the material to be used independently of a text or to complement one.
