Spanish articles for Alevel

Here you will find a variety of articles we got our students to read and prepare to talk about in our conversation classes. Most are from El País. Students had to read the articles, look up the vocab (and complete the activities) and be ready to summarise them briefly to their partner. Then, we discussed them in class.
