About The Solution

Overview

Developed specifically to ease the transition for high beginner Spanish students to the intermediate level, Anímate offers a highly manageable and complete scope and sequence for a one-semester course. The text opens with a concise, three-chapter review of concepts typically studied in high school and focuses on areas that are problematic for high beginners. The program's functional, integrated-skills approach combines culturally rich input with contextualized practice, promoting self-expression and providing ample opportunities for successful communication. Students acquire communicative skills while developing an awareness and appreciation of Hispanic cultures. Consistent recycling of material builds confidence, and a balance of practical and humorous content makes learning Spanish enjoyable.
