  • My level 2 students loved the stories about superstitions. This led to research on the traditions and beliefs of other Spanish-speaking countries. Gracias

  • I actually use this as a base for learning about superstitions in Hispanic countries in my upper level college-in-the-high-school class and it was perfect to get the unit started. A high quality resource, with answer keys, alternatives, and thorough explanations as always <3
