Great Book
First of all, excuse me for my english, I'm a Spanish teacher, but not a native english speaker.
The first materials that I bought from HABLA CON EÑE. were the magazine and the Book A2, which have been more reviewed than this one. Now I can say that im very satisfied with El mundo en español B. When you open the book the first thing you notice is that the paper is good, but the design is even better.
Furthermore, the chapters are divided in a smart way, so for example If you are talking about traveling in Spanish speaking countries in your class you ca use the topic 5 "Lugares emblemáticos", to make your class more dynamic and entertaining Each text is read by native speakers with different accents and comes with exercises that are great to prepare the DELE. The glossary comes in 5 languages, this makes it very useful if you have students from different countries.
