Hi there

Would anybody be able to recommend a good English textbook for teaching Spanish to Adults from Beginner Level.

I am aware of the following two books, but have not used either of them and therefore am not sure of their merit:

"Pasos 1 - A first course in Spanish" by Rosa María Martín and Martyn Ellis

"El Nuevo ELE - Curso de español para Extranjeros" by Virgilio Borobio

If you have used either of these books to teach adults or can suggest any good alternatives then I'd be happy to hear from you.

Best regards

Ruth

I have used the second one Jul 20, 2009

Hi Ruth,

I have used the second one, "El Nuevo ELE". It's got fun activities but is not so good for students to revise on their own.

Another book I have used for short courses is "Talk Spanish". It's very practical and students can also use it on their own so it is really worth buying.

Good luck!

Cristina.
