About The Solution

Overview

FUENTES, the successful two volume intermediate Spanish program presents an integrated skills approach to intermediate Spanish that develops both receptive and productive skills simultaneously. Fuentes is made up of FUENTES: CONVERSACIÓN Y GRAMÁTICA (FCG) and FUENTES: LECTURA Y REDACCIÓN (FLR). Although FUENTES: CONVERSACIÓN Y GRAMÁTICA and FUENTES: LECTURA Y REDACCIÓN are designed to be used together, they can also be used independently of each other. FUENTES: CONVERSACIÓN Y GRAMÁTICA, Fourth Edition, is organized by chapter theme, grammar, functions, and vocabulary. Fuentes program approach and philosophy: We learn by doing. By using the language to communicate original thoughts, in oral and written form, and by interacting with written texts and recorded conversations, students will acquire a high degree of proficiency. Skill integration promotes language development. Each skill reinforces the others; therefore, students learn to comprehend and produce language while practicing specific strategies for listening, reading, and writing. Many activities combine skills to better reflect real-life language use. Language is culture, and culture is reflected in language. By being exposed to real-life situations and by comparing the new cultures with their own, students acquire an awareness of and respect for other peoples. Spiraling of material is essential to move students from learning to acquisition. Continuous and systematic reentry of previously studied material while learning about new topics leads students to acquisition of language needed to carry out specific functions. Learning is enhanced when it is enjoyable. If the material presented places students in a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere, and if students enjoy class activities, their rate of success increases.

Topics chosen reflect chapter themes.
  • New art. Dynamic, humorous, colorful, and culturally appropriate drawings enhance different aspects of the text. The artist, an Argentinean, is the same age as the students and thus shares their humor while offering a fresh Latin American perspective.

Each chapter of FUENTES: LECTURA Y REDACCIÓN is designed to enhance the development of your reading and writing skills, your understanding of Hispanic cultures and societies, as well as your awareness of your own cultural beliefs, values, and assumptions. As you work through FUENTES: LECTURA Y REDACCIÓN, remember that learning to read and write in Spanish is a process. In fact, you are probably still learning to interpret texts and write well in your native language. But you can make this process flow more easily by reading and writing something in Spanish every day, even if it is just a note. More important, stop every now and then to check your progress. Read something in Spanish that has nothing to do with class; you may not understand everything, but you will probably understand at least part of it. Though it is often forgotten, the fact is that people do much of their reading and writing for pleasure, and we, the authors of this text, hope that the readings and writing activities in Fuentes will spark your imagination and continued interest in the Spanish-speaking world.
