From Flash to HTML5

Counting

Moving Forward

You may have noticed a few changes that have been taking place on SpanishTown.ca over the last week.  We have begun to transition away from using Flash and moving towards HTML5 for our Spanish language audio.  The first pages to see the change are our “Counting in Spanish” pages, from 0 – 100.

More Devices

By making these changes we are opening up the site to students using Windows Phones, iPads and iPhones.  The larger “tiles” also make it easier for those using touch interfaces on Windows 8 devices and iOS.

Browsers

These changes should work on any modern browser such as IE, Chrome, Firefox or Safari.  Just make sure you are using a current version.

The Plan

Eventually all of our audio vocabulary pages will be moving to HTML5.  It will take some time to convert all of our vocabulary (we have a lot) so be patient.

Check out some of the pages:

Count to 10 in Spanish
Count to 20 in Spanish
Count to 30 in Spanish
Count to 40 in Spanish
Count to 50 in Spanish
Count to 60 in Spanish
Count to 70 in Spanish
Count to 80 in Spanish
Count to 90 in Spanish
Count to 100 in Spanish

Grade1SpanishPage

New Spanish Vocabulary

We’ve been hard at work over the last few months preparing a major update to our Spanish for Kids Grade 1 pages.

The vocabulary has been reorganized into 10 themed free Spanish lessons.  Each lesson contains a number of vocabulary pages.  A lot of new vocabulary has been added and all of the Flash audio has been remade.

Each themed lesson includes counting in Spanish with audio up to 100.  In lesson 1, learn to count to 10.  In lesson 2, count to 20 and so on.

50VocabSheets50 New Spanish Vocabulary Sheets

To compliment this massive amount of work we’ve also added 50 completely free, fully illustrated, Spanish vocabulary sheets in PDF format for downloading and printing.  Teachers are free to download and print them for use in their classrooms.

Spanish Lesson Booklets Coming Soon

We are still not finished updating the Spanish Grade 1 section.  Next on our list is the creation of our Lesson Booklets to accompany each Spanish lesson.  Hopefully we’ll start publishing those booklets early in 2012.

Feedback

We have scoured these new sections for errors and problems with links.  If you find any please let us know so that we can get those repaired.

Feel free to comment on the material as well.  We are always looking at ways to improve the site and the materials.
