What's New

  • NEW NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CULTURAL VIDEOS. The addition of dazzling video footage and photography of National Geographic to iLrn will enhance students’ cultural exploration. Through the 21 country-based video clips, students are exposed to the diversity of the Spanish-speaking world, from the fascinating life style of the gauchos of Argentina to the mysteries of the ancient Mayan civilization of Tikal in Guatemala, from the bustling streets of Barcelona in Spain to the exotic species that inhabit Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands. The level-appropriate activities guide students as they explore the varied content of the videos. As they are visually drawn into the world of Spanish speakers, they have opportunities to engage in conversation about what they are experiencing. Students are better able to talk and write about what is familiar to them – what they have experienced through sight and sound.
  • NEW INTERACTIVE GRAMMAR ACTIVITIES FOR DIFFERENT LEARNING PREFERENCES. New grammar practice activities centered around visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (VAK) learning preferences make students’ practice experience more interactive and, therefore, more effective. Kinesthetic learners will benefit from iLrn’s new “drag-and-drop” functionality, which makes movement-based learning realizable in the digital realm. Upgrades to Share It! facilitate both student usage of the tool and instructor tracking of the assignments.
