Ready-to-use research tasks, worksheets, background information and practice exam questions ensure comprehensive understanding of Gabriel García Márquez's classic short novel, El coronel no tiene quien le escriba. Students will get to know the novella inside out and be fully prepared for the speaking and writing exams.

The structure offers the perfect balance between guided classwork and independent study:

  • During: The comprehensive chapter-by-chapter walk-through ensures thorough understanding. Students will consolidate their knowledge of the narrative through vocabulary, comprehension, translation, grammar, discussion, and writing activities. Includes dedicated whole-text analysis section covering characters, themes, techniques and symbols.
  • After: Essay-writing tips and exam-style questions help students to apply what they have learnt. Sample essays and marking activity prompt discussion of successful answers.
