The English for Spanish Speakers editions of our courses help Spanish-speaking learners by integrating our expert knowledge of Spanish speakers with information taken from the unique Cambridge Learner Corpus.
Our in-depth understanding of Spanish-speaking learners is the result of extensive research carried out by our locally-based editorial team. This guarantees that the topics and activity types are relevant to Spanish-speaking learners of English, with a focus on areas of language which are typically problematic. Extra support is also provided for teachers of Spanish speakers through detailed teaching notes and specifically-designed ideas for the classroom.
On the other hand, English for Spanish Speakers courses integrate information from the Cambridge Learner Corpus. This is a large collection of exam scripts written by students taking Cambridge ESOL English exams, built by Cambridge University Press and Cambridge ESOL. It currently contains over 200,000 scripts and is growing all the time. It forms part of the Cambridge English Corpus (CEC).
Its unique 'error-coding' system highlights the mistakes made by candidates. We use this system to identify which words, grammar patterns and language structures cause the most problems for Spanish-speaking students learning English. As a result, English for Spanish Speakers courses address the common mistakes that Spanish-speaking learners make, and give extra practice and tips to avoid these common errors.
