Below are two links for information about obtaining free Spanish textbooks from the Mexican national K-12 curriculum. The first is the textbook distribution program’s website at the Mexican National Education Commission, and the second is the website for the Mexican Consulates in the United States. Contact any Mexican consulate to request textbooks in Spanish for your students.
