El mundo hispanohablante en textos / Reading the Spanish-Speaking World is a content-based textbook written in Spanish, which aims to develop command of the Spanish language and critical thinking skills through response to a series of texts originating from a number of different Spanish-speaking countries.

The nineteen chapters, all including texts by contemporary authors, cover a range of themes of up-to-date interest. Users are encouraged to engage with these topical works through a selection of activities which will develop reading, writing and speaking skills together with a wider command of vocabulary and grammatical structures. Users will also learn about different styles and registers of writing and be able to respond to a variety of contemporary political, cultural and social issues, most of which are specific to the Spanish-speaking world. Additionally, the inclusion of an extensive word glossary and detailed explanations of grammatical points provides valuable reference material for users.

This is the ideal textbook to accompany any course in Spanish language at B2 and C1 level, and can be used both within and outside the classroom.
