New Spanish Titles for Middle School

  • Breaking the Spanish Barrier: ¡Vamos! (Beginner "A")
  • Breaking the Spanish Barrier: ¡En camino! (Beginner "B")

These two titles are well-suited for middle school students who want to begin their study of Spanish with an award-winning program. The layout and presentation of each level are ideal for one year of study and could also be an alternative for high school students who would like a more deliberate introduction to Spanish. 

 

I'd like trial access.

 

¡Vamos! (Beginner A”): 

This introductory program with its print book and online component, serves harmoniously as the core curriculum. Designed for total beginners who are ready to immerse themselves into the beautiful language of Spanish, ¡Vamos! Beginner "A" presents essential vocabulary, key grammar, and important cultural information from many Spanish-speaking countries. It is ideal for students in middle school as well as for older students who would prefer a more deliberate pace.

The STEPS Section:

Students begin their journey with our heralded “STEPS Section,” ten essential building blocks (greetings, family, telling time, numbers, weather, days of the week, home and school vocabulary, etc.) that help students begin speaking immediately.

Topics Covered:

After the STEPS section, students learn the following material in subsequent chapters: 

  • Present and the preterite (past tense)
  • Subject pronouns
  • Object pronouns
  • Adjectives
  • Ser and Estar verbs
  • Prepositions and conjunctions

¿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. Cultural articles with audio and video along with literary selections are also featured throughout the program.

You will find the tone of these pages to be welcoming and conversational – a one-on-one journey between teacher and student.

Ready to go? ¡Vamos!

I'd like trial access.

¡En camino! (Beginner “B”):

This new title is designed to follow the aforementioned ¡Vamos! (Beginner “A”). The title is ideal for those in middle school as well as for older students who would prefer a more deliberate pace.

Topics Covered:

In ¡En camino! (Beginner "B"), students will first review the major ideas from ¡Vamos! (Beginner “A”)including the present and the preterite, subject pronouns, object pronouns, adjectives, ser estar, prepositions, and conjunctions. 

The learning continues with new material including: 

  • Imperfect tense
  • Adverbs
  • Saber and Conocer verbs
  • Progressive tense
  • Comparisons
  • Formal commands
  • Por & Para
  • Immediate future

¿Recuerdas?

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

Even More Cultural Content

Up-to-date cultural information will be introduced at the beginning of each chapter from countries such as Venezuela, Bolivia, Chile, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Cuba, Uruguay, Paraguay, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras, Dominican Republic, and El Salvador. Cultural articles with audio and video along with literary selections are also featured throughout the program.
