Eine rein interrogative Frage (a question for gaining a better understanding only):
Do you know how reliable this web site would be? Because I haven't seen it before. And to me, it makes some difference if a long-term forum member like you would know anything particular about it, or not.

(Maybe you already answered this question in advance when you called it "major". But in that case, it isn't clear to me yet.)

How reliable is it?
I think most of their readers are French pupils studying Spanish, so school grammar correctness should be their main focus. I also think there is enough scrutiny to weed out mistakes that might occur when members post their own exercices. You are asked to tell them if you spot a mistake.

modified text-to-speech audio with breaks

for reflexion, memorization, repetition etc

Open this page in the Vivaldi browser with TTS "Select and Speak" installed:
https://forum.language-learners.org/pos ... 7&p=126034
-----------

A new Spanish text should be taken to the Vivaldi browser, pasted into Google Translate and then played by the "Select and Speak" application, which has a very good Spanish voice. The pauses can be adjusted by filling in suspension points, single worde are pronounced more markedly if put in commas.


los baños bastante sucios...

Me alojéé durante siete días con mis hijos en este hotel...

reservé dos habitaciones por ínternet...

y me las cobraron antes de ir al hotel...

via tarjeta...

entiendo que en esto nada tiene que ver el hotel...

Y cuando lleguéé...

me llevéé mi primera sorpresa (me llevo una sorpresa)...

la habitación para mi mujer y para mi...

era minúscula, incomoda...

no podíamos estar los dos sentados...

solo había una silla incomoda...

y con bastante dificultad...

para poder sentarte...

debajo de una mesa pequeña...

debajo de esta mesa...

había un espacio para el mini bar...

que no había...


por que si lo, hubiese habido...


no se hubiéra podido abrir...

por la falta de espacio...

Ademas no podias abrir la ventana...

por que la ventana...

al abrirla...

iba, a, chocar con la tele...

en su recorrido...

y había que desplazar la televisión...

para poder abrir la ventana...

en fin todo un poco complicado...

para poder alojar en esa habitacion a dos personas...

no reune los requisitos mínimos...

para alojar a dos personas...
Pero para mi lo peor con diferencia...

ha sido la suciedad...

y la falta de limpieza en la habitación...

y sobre todo en el baño...

la suciedad en la bañera es excesiva...

El vivo ejemplo...


entre la bañera y el azulejo...

es un cordon negro de suciedad...

no de vejez...

es bastante nuevo...

pero no lo limpian...

por lo que aquello esta un poco de aquella manera... te duchas con asco...

de no rozarte con las paredes de la ducha....

Por otra parte...

el caudal de agua de la ducha es ridiculo...

sale muy poquito agua...

y es muy dificil ducharse...

en fin poco recomendable.
Por lo demás el hotel no esta mal...

pequeño pero bien ubicado...

I've just stumbled on your thread by chance and wanted to thank you for posting/sharing so many useful links. I'm particularly interested in the Alacarta series, which will be really helpful. Much appreciated!
