On the MIT website is an easily navigable and appealing list of free foreign-language newspaper sites. They are categorized by language and draw from countries around the globe. Languages include Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
News reading is extremely valuable for reinforcing current vocabulary and idioms while also exposing you to other cultures. And you can pick from among relatively short selections on the subjects that interest you most!
I have sometimes enjoyed reading foreign-language news from quite small towns. It is fun and also oddly moving to have these technology-based windows into remote and unfamiliar communities.
