Future Spanish lessons as stories for all levels

Research has proven that the best method of learning a language is just as these exercises provide: Listen to the audio of a story to get the gist of what it's about and then on the subsequent hearing, have the the ability to read along. But you take it one step further and give us the ability to look up a translation as we read and listen! *Your system is fantastic!* All that's missing is a pronunciation guide for each phrase!!! If lessons for all learning levels were graded on progressive essential knowledge with stories based on that concept (listen+ listen and read + translate and pronunciation) using the appropriate tenses and vocabulary for the level, I'm sure progress would be more rapid and enjoyable. After the concept was outlined in the mother tongue of the student, all future lessons could be completely in Spanish with the translation available as needed. I envision a page for the lesson/story with inbuilt translations and pronunciation guides, at the top of which is the audio bar that only appears by clicking on a button at the end of the story. Students must be made aware that reading the story first *before* activating the audio is key to rapid progress. My question is, what app or program are you using to achieve these listen/read/translate all-in-one stories? Or do you have a team of techies working overtime to combine the text with the translation and the audio bar separate??

un asunto que invita a la reflexión

Sin duda, un tema que debería haberse resuelto hace tiempo. Creo que para una pareja "casada" (realmente comprometida con una relación de por vida) después de la boda, el empleador de quien trabaje fuera de casa debería dividir el salario por dos y establecer dos cuentas de seguridad social y de jubilación. Así, independientemente de lo que ocurra más adelante, tanto el marido como la mujer estarán protegidos. La pareja debería compartir los gastos del hogar y decidir conjuntamente las compras importantes, disponiendo cada uno de un "dinero de bolsillo" mensual justo. Una cuenta de ahorro conjunta sería una buena idea.
