Europe Comics

Europe Comics began as an idea of Franco-Belgian comics agent Mediatoon Licensing. It evolved into a 13-partner pan-European alliance, supported by the European Commission and held together by the desire to spread the European graphic novel heritage around the world.

One of its main targets is the creation of a collective digital imprint, replicating European comics’ variety, richness and originality, in English and digital format. This initiative strives for greater international exposure of European comic authors. Last but not least, this project aims to create a comprehensive European comics online directory.

Inglés americano 101

Canal de YouTube de Daniel Manzano con numerosos vídeos para aprender inglés (americano) muy orientado a vocabulario y expresiones y su pronunciación.

Desde la perspectiva de un hablante de español resulta interesante por su orientación práctica, por la referencia a multitud de situaciones reales y el esfuerzo por reflejar el uso corriente de la lengua. 

Así mismo, el hecho de que los contenidos se distribuyan en vídeos temáticos y de distinto nivel de complejidad hace un poco complicada su utilización sistemática, si bien como consulta o repaso de temas concretos es bastante aprovechable.

Aunque en su web ofrece también cursos de pago, podéis consultar de manera abierta multitud de materiales en:
