La Guerra Civil (planeando el golpe de estado)

La Guerra Civil (planeando el golpe de estado)

1) Put the conversation in order 2) Put the correct English next to the messages in Spanish. This provides a good timeline for the coup d'etat. The conversations were made by a Spanish newspaper, once I remember I'll put the credit in.

El terrorismo / ETA - Terrorism in Spain

El terrorismo / ETA - Terrorism in Spain

Context of looking at global issues. A powerpoint outlining the origins of ETA in Spain and their purpose, goes along with a reading comprehension. This is based on an article I found on El Mundo and adapted. The questions I've designed to go with the comprehension are based around exam style reading papers and include finding synonyms / translation and putting ideas into your own words. Hope it helps! :)
