ABSTRACT  If foreign language newspapers are to be a source of cultural insight and a springboard to conversation with “natives,” students must first develop skill in skimming through newspapers. Development of this skill should be a rewarding activity in itself. The semiprogramed learning unit described identifies the specialized vocabulary of crime, social events, and sports headlines of Spanish newspapers, and provides various exercises to develop familiarity and speed in spotting stories relating to these topics.
