February has been a very busy month here at Speak Up’s offices, and for a reason we believe you will like, too. Besides the current issue of Speak Up, with Angelina, Marion, American snow, and British sand, there is a new product coming out at the end of the month: a brand-new language magazine, ¡Habla!, dedicated to Spanish (in response to your many requests, dear Speak Up readers). Penelope Cruz is on the cover, and the inside pages are filled with interesting stuff about the language of Cervantes, both in Spain and Latin America. And of course, everything is done in the Speak Up standard of quality. So our family is growing! Have a look, after February 25, at our newest arrival, and as usual, let us know what you think. Happy reading, twice over.
