He graduated as a teacher from the University of Chile (1965) and, with an American scholarship, obtained an M.A. in Education from Michigan State University (1966). A British Council scholarship took him to the UK in 1972, where he obtained a postgraduate Diploma in Education from Manchester University (1973) and an M.A. in Education from the Institute of Education, University of London (1974).

He began his Spanish teaching career in the UK in 1975, working at a number of higher education institutions over the years and acting as an examiner in Spanish for the University of London School Examinations Board and the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry. In 1986 he moved to Spain where he lived for many years.

Juan Kattán-Ibarra's first Spanish language course was published in 1978, as one of the first stages of a writing career which continues to this day. His current titles in the Teach Yourself series include Spanish, Latin American Spanish, Spanish Grammar and Phone Spanish (Hodder Education) and he is the co-author of Teach Yourself Speak Spanish and Spanish Grammar in Context (Hodder Education), Modern Spanish Grammar and Modern Spanish Grammar Workbook (Routledge), Sueños - World Spanish 2 (BBC).

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent and up-to-date course book for more advanced students of Spanish. Divided into eight Sections, it covers Society, Spain in perspective, Leisure and sport, Art and culture, Education and work, The economic situation, Health and the environment, and Hispanic horizons. Each Section contains a number of authentic texts from newspapers and magazines, followed by a variety of oral and written exercises to be done in groups or pairs. The accompanying cassette is also excellent, with a wide variety of topics and speakers (including Latin American). Margin notes highlight difficult words and phrases in the texts. I have found this course and cassette to be excellent for self-study. They have provided just what I wanted to improve and update my rather rusty, graduate-level Spanish. Highly recommended.
