English for Spanish Speakers editions help Spanish-speaking learners overcome the difficulties they face when learning English. This is achieved by integrating our expert knowledge of Spanish speakers with information taken from the unique Cambridge English Corpus.

The Cambridge English Corpus

English for Spanish Speakers courses integrate information from the Cambridge English Corpus. This is a large collection of exam scripts written by students taking Cambridge English exams, built by Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment English.

Every year, more than 200,000 Spanish-speaking candidates take one of the Cambridge exams. We analyse the information generated by these exams, with a unique 'error-coding' system that highlights the mistakes made by candidates. We use this system to identify which words, grammar patterns and language structures cause the most problems for Spanish-speaking students learning English. As a result, English for Spanish Speakers courses address the common mistakes that Spanish-speaking learners make, and give extra practice and tips to avoid these common errors.

Local editorial team

Our in-depth understanding of Spanish-speaking learners is also the result of extensive research carried out by our locally-based editorial team.

This guarantees that the topics and activity types are relevant to Spanish-speaking learners of English, with a focus on areas of language which are typically problematic. Extra support is also provided for teachers of Spanish speakers through detailed teaching notes and specifically-designed ideas for the classroom.
