"It seems to be a synthesis of the best of proficiency-oriented instruction, communicative teaching, and an input approach."

"The vocabulary is presented in a very clear way. There are plenty of opportunities for using new words within a meaningful context, and for recycling them."

"I think the book presents/explains grammar quite clearly, and the activities are relevant and useful."

"We have a two-track program, presently using Puentes for advanced beginners. Avenidas seems a good solution to the problem of running two tracks with different types of texts as we are doing now."

"Avenidas provides instructors and students with a large amount of materials and information about the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries. The authors understand that support for teachers goes beyond explanations about vocabulary in different Spanish dialects."
