3) Is the amount and type of pragmatic information given similar weighting at each linguistic proficiency level?
The ultimate outcome of the research and this chapter is twofold: first, the intention is to ascertain how much pragmatic related content is included in the textbooks of Spanish L2; the second is to create an awareness of the need to include pragmatic related information when designing teaching materials.
