Because of the key to the exercises is it ideal as a self-independent study material. This compilation of activities that can be used for any student of advanced level Spanish.’ – I Simó-Arroyo, Spanish Teacher and Independent Reviewer

‘Fabulous. I like the range of activities, the grammatical areas covered (ser/estar, por/para, tenses, subjunctive, if clauses, high frequency words, converting verbs into nouns) , the structure, the variety, the order, the use of language. The scaffolding of tasks provides appropriate support. (…) One of the best resources I have reviewed in ages, clearly a lot of research has gone into it!!! I cannot wait to teach this film, congratulations.’ – R Bravo, Spanish Teacher and Independent Reviewer

‘Great resource, with lots of useful activities (…) I like many things about the resource, such as that it includes a variety of resources: internet, audiovisual media, etc. It has a great selection of internet sites to help students with their research while at the same time it encourages wide reading and personal initiative and provides students with opportunities for further research at every step.’ – J I Ermina, MFL Teacher and Independent Reviewer

‘This is an amazingly detailed and comprehensive resource (…) the variety is immense. The speaking activities look engaging. There is a huge amount of independent internet research for students to do.
