What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6189)
'Good for homeworks and cover lessons!' M Mortimer, Head of Spanish and ZigZag Education Customer
'Very good both for use in lessons and for independent study' M Juarros, Spanish Teacher and Independent reviewer
'This is a great resource for AS Spanish and I like the fact that there are vocabulary, grammar, speaking and writing exercises. I like the fact that the translations are related to the main text, which in that case the translations reinforces the topic and it provides then a more meaningful exercise. Also I like that most of the reading texts are quite current and might be of great interest to the students, such as the texts on tomatina or on a divorced family in the first unit.' J I Ermina, Spanish Teacher and Examiner and Independent Reviewer
