Features and Benefits

  • MUNDO 21’s content-based approach provides students with a wealth of opportunities to interact with each other as they discuss the many cultural and literary readings in each unit.
  • As students discover the twenty-one countries that comprise the Spanish-speaking world,* they gain insight not only into Hispanic cultures and civilizations, but achieve a global understanding of the issues and challenges faced by the Spanish-speaking world today
  • LISTENING: Students acquire listening skills by using the text-specific short films, video and CD-ROM as well as the audio CDs that accompany the workbook/laboratory manual. SPEAKING: Speaking skills are enhanced in the many discussions, role plays, and debates that follow each reading. READING: As a bridge between first-year language courses and third-year literature classes, MUNDO 21 makes a special effort to continue developing student reading skills with pre- and post-reading activities requiring the use of critical-thinking skills. WRITING: Writing skills are developed using the process-writing approach, which trains students to plan and organize, write several drafts and get peer feedback, and to give and receive editing feedback, all before doing a final draft.
