Testimonials & Case Studies

“I have found REPORTEROS to be the most effective and communicative textbook I have ever utilized in my teaching. Previously, I had grown weary of exercises that lacked any real-world context, leaving students disconnected from the practical applications of language learning. However, with REPORTEROS, the main focus is on fostering communication while teaching grammar and vocabulary.”

Diego Fernández, The American International School of Vilnius

"I am very happy with the content of the book and my students finally have material they can relate to for their age including all social and technological changes they go through. The truth is that REPORTEROS has changed the dynamics of the Spanish classroom. Now the students can relate to the language better. They no longer see it as something distant and difficult to learn."

Tatiana Alarcón, Salem Academy

"We have long created our own thematic units (which have been excellent) -- but they are a ton of work, and I have loved how deeply contextualized each of the units are in REPORTEROS. My students just did presentations comparing their childhoods and that of their parent/grandparent/etc. and they were able to use such specific and interesting vocabulary (as well as easily recycle vocabulary). They are thriving with REPORTEROS. Big fan."

Stephanie Rudolph, Durham Academy
