Astronomy in Spanish

Most of the world doesn't speak English as a first language. That isn't surprising although it can be if you don't leave the English-speaking parts of the web. One of the things that's been tried on the Jodcast is to translate the news segment into different languages. This is good because it allows non-English speakers to hear the content and it could also help with learning as you can hear the same content in different languages. Over the years there has been news in Chinese, French, Portuguese, Hindi and even Farsi but none of these have lasted for more than a few months as the students providing the translations get busy or leave. Now we're trying again with the wonderful Lizette Ramirez translating the latest astronomy news into Spanish. If you speak Spanish, please check it out.
