The material was seen with a Textil Arts Professor, and our point of view fits in with what we know about it, but it has several language problems in writing and spelling. We found a lot of mistakes in this issue and it's the main teaching material in the original language: spanish.

It is an interesting material for learning and practicing Spanish, but has some errors and misspellings, nothing really crucial, but if you're learning a language, your textbook should be flawless.
