Online Resources – Spanish Language Newspapers and Magazines
Newspapers and magazines are highly localized. Each Spanish speaking country has its own newspapers and, within the country, different areas are focused on different topics. It would be the same if we were to read a guide on the most important papers written in English.
Because Spanish is not only spoken in Spain, but also in most of South America, this list serves as a guide to the most important and widely-read publications written in Spanish in the whole world.
Each country has its own language variety, history, typical expressions, topics of interests, and folklore. Therefore, this guide will present a universal but extremely distinctive way of perceiving the world depending on the country where the paper or magazine is published.
