Ready-to-use research tasks, worksheets, background information and practice exam questions ensure comprehensive understanding of this culturally rich and vibrant region at the heart of Spain. Students will know la comunidad de Madrid inside out and be fully prepared for the speaking and writing exams.

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

  • Before: Introductory tasks provide students with the basic knowledge to begin their study – includes comprehension, listening and research activities.
  • During: Standalone chapters cover each aspect of the region with: ❶ vocabulary exercises; ❷ research tasks followed by comprehension questions to reinforce understanding; ❸ text-based activities with a specific focus on language; ❹ para hablar activities including games and debates; ❺ para escribir questions.
  • After: Exam-style oral and essay questions help students to apply what they have learnt. A model essay and commentary prompt discussion of successful answers.
  • Topics covered include: geografía, historia, población, política, economía, turismo, cultura y estilo de vida
