It is ideal for students in middle school as well as for older students who would prefer a more deliberate pace.

  3. Clear presentation and explanation of grammar topics with plenty of practice
  4. Practice activities online with correction feedback and the ability to repeat practice as needed

¿Recuerdas?

A special section in the middle of each chapter called ¿Recuerdas? focuses on concepts presented in earlier chapters, so that students can review prior material as they learn new ideas.

Cultural Content:

Up-to-date cultural information from countries such as Mexico, Spain, Colombia, Argentina, Peru, and Ecuador is offered at the beginning of each chapter. Students are exposed to different Spanish-speaking accents from native speakers throughout the program.

You will find the tone of these pages to be welcoming and conversational.

Audio recorded by native speakers, flashcards, videos, cultural articles, and captivating imagery of notable sites from French-speaking countries work together to keep students engaged.
