I just visited the site for the newspaper "La Prensa Grafica." I made a beeline to the short poll they have on the front page. I often go to it to see what the subject matter is. It is short and sweet and always about a new topic. I recommend taking the poll.
You not only practice reading the questions, but you get practice reading the words and trying to translate them in your head. That develops marvelous skills. If you don't get the words, you can always look for clues in the articles or go find a dictionary. You can also use the internet to look up a word or phrase. Today, they focused on the words "espionaje" and "prontitud."
You also get statistics in numerals, so you can practice the numbers in Spanish. You can practice saying the numbers and practice the percents.
Visiting a newspaper's poll is a very fast way of keeping up your Spanish. Try to visit different ones in different papers today. It's a great way to stay informed on matters in Spanish.
