Language Literacy and News Stories: More Than TV at WPAA-TV

#in2languages #en2idiomas is a Language Literacy TV initiative for persons learning English or Spanish which uses world, technology, arts and health news produced by German Broadcast TV Deutsche Welle in consecutively published segments Weekdays and Saturday, midday on WPAA-TV in Wallingford.

For those without cable TV, programs are concurrently streamed on the Internet at on wpaa.tv here http://wpaa.tv/watch/tvoninternet/

The initiative began in 2013. The program continued until 2016 with a no fees contract between DW.DE and WPAA-TV.  In 2017 Ion Bank underwrote the acquisition of Spanish content. Since then WPAA has matched local contributions from its program fund to keep the initiative going. As part of WPAA-TV distribution policy, a person or individual must consider content Good Enough 2 Share to be published. The Spanish Community of Wallingford has been the entity for this and has committed to helping with outreach and assessing community impact. 

Help us get news of this exceptional media resource to as many people as possible serving populations who speak Spanish and are learning English, or vice-versa so that more learners can be helped in an informing manner.
