Macanudo Comics

We’ve written numerous times about using comic strips in your foreign language class. It is such a great authentic resource for students to read in context and the text is short enough that you can use it at even beginning levels. Our favorite authentic comic strip, is Macanudo by Liniers, an Argentina strip that is extremely original and creative. Read our previous post about Macanudo and how to use comics in your class.

    I really like this comic strip. Careful because I think most of those links are for the English translations of his collections. Might be able to find the Spanish ones on Ebay/Thriftbooks/etc
