    hey guys

    I'm doing Spanish A2 at the moment and I'm having some trouble with the research based essay. I'm currently doing mine about ''como agua para chocolate'' .

    The characters and social themes were fairly easy, however I'm struggling with the techniques.. any ideas?

    We're doing that too! The main technique to write about is the use of "El Realismo Magico" i.e Magic Realism. Basically Esquivel uses it to create humour and is used to combine the supernatural with daily routine
    You can write about the presence of "los fantasmas de Mama Elena y Nacha" and the effect of the food on people (e.g "la vomatina collectiva en la boda de Rosaura")
