We have exciting news. Coming for August 1, 2019 Boomerang and Atresmedia's recent Spy Drama El tiempo entre costuras will be available in classrooms and for remote assignments. It is a war-time drama based on the New York Times bestseller of the same name. We have leveled the project for your students in Spanish 2-4 or for intermediate independent users. It is currently available only on EduNovela.com! We are offering Spanish-only subtitles for your students' growth in fluency and listening skills.
You will have all of the same features you have with Silvana sin lana and Gran Hotel such as vocabulary cards, Pre and Post readings, rich classroom discussion activities, and more.
The learning system will be the same as what you use for your current program, with each episode being approximately 15 minutes in length and 42 episodes in total, subtitles in Spanish only.
The project has been extensively tested in high schools in California with great success with all students alike. The male students, in particular, were intrigued with the connections to the wars and the spy factor.
If you are not familiar with this beautifully filmed spy drama set primarily in Madrid, and also The Spanish Protectorate of Morocco, and Lisbon in 1936-1941, we are providing a sneak peek at the trailer. Sira Quiroga is a 20-year old seamstress in Madrid just prior to the start of the Spanish Civil War. Due to her social savvy and talent, she becomes a dress maker to the Nazi wives living in Spain and Morocco. Sira becomes a key to the British success in keeping the Nazis from luring Spain into WW II. The story is based in part on the real-life characters of Rosalinda Fox and Juan Luis Beigbeder, a high ranking Spanish official who counters Franco in his efforts to drag Spain from the Civil War into WW II. Other optional, historical materials will be included for your students.
