Galería on vhlcentral

Galería is fully supported by vhlcentral—a technology platform developed specifically for language and literacy—with integrated content, resources, and communication tools that bring Spanish language and culture to life.

For Students

A safe online environment with plenty of practice, communication tools, and engaging media to make learning an interactive, meaningful experience.

Communication Tools

Group Chat and Partner Chat help students develop their interpersonal communication skills! With Group Chat, small groups of students work synchronously to record a conversation in the target language, while Partner Chat activities allow students to carry out synchronous conversations in pairs via video/audio.

Interactive vText

Gives students a virtual textbook for browser based exploration.

More practice and authentic content

Students can find more opportunities to practice online, and they can find all the authentic videos where they can learn about the countries, the people, the music, and the arts.

News and Cultural Updates

Access monthly links to carefully curated authentic resources from across the Spanish-speaking world—from online newspaper articles to TV news segments. Each selection includes a scaffolded activity sequence leveled for built-in differentiation.

Exprésate activities

Increased interaction with Exprésate activities allows students to submit part of their work in the form of a composition, free-response recording, or video record activity.

Autoevaluación checklists

Available at the end of every module, the Autoevaluación checklists allow students to track their progress.
