Hey guys, I am looking for some new sources to import from. I am looking for magazines, newspapers or blogs, preferably not any mainstream-media. The languages I am currently looking for are Spanish, French, Dutch and Portuguese, but any language will actually be appreciated. I hope you guys can give me some suggestions on where I might go looking for interesting content and real news. Thanks already for any suggestions!
Before I started focusing exclusively on Italian, and was reading a fair amount of Spanish materials, I found www.publico.es to be a useful alternative news source. Left-leaning, very critical of Rajoy and company.
En français, mediapart.fr is a punchy, web-only news source that has had a few major scoops in the last year or so. To such an extent that it's almost turned into a new mainstream media outlet. I don't read it, but I have friends that swear by it.
There´s this blog, for example: http://www.bitaites.org/ The author has recently written 2 very critical articles about the newly approved law on private copies, which will make tablets and other storage devices more expensive.
Does anyone have any recommendations for Italian? I generally read La Repubblica (and Espresso), but I tend to find it rather boring. I recently discovered www.internazionale.it, but it doesn't have a lot of online content.
Does anyone have any good links for Beginner-ish Swedish. I already know about 8-sidor, an I'm planning to work through the massive course of articles on the site soon, but i'd love it if anyone could suggest any other beginner like content, ideally with translation, in Swedish. Thanks :)
Thanks for the reply Elric. I was already aware of the FSI courses, but I was a little weary of the audio because it contains some english as well. Of course, if someone could suggest a way to remove this (I'm not very tech-savy haha) then I would be very grateful. Thanks :)
