Features/Benefits

  • Six meaningful and manageable lessons comprise an accessible one-semester program that explores a variety of topics chosen for their cultural relevance and their success in generating student interaction.

  • The multimedia package includes an integrated Online Study Center and a text-specific video, which provide additional grammar and vocabulary practice in engaging formats.
  • Logical step-by-step presentation introduces the lesson's grammar points in three or four Pasos (steps), each opening with a dialogue or a text that recycles active vocabulary and grammar in context.
  • Clear, succinct grammar explanations in English support acquisition. Practice ranges from controlled drills to open-ended, personalized, and contextualized activities.
