Overview

Everything your students need to master the skills and concepts of the course is built right in to this audio and video-enhanced learning environment, including an eBook; assignable and integrated textbook activities; assignable, partnered voice-recorded activities; a workbook; a lab manual with audio; companion videos; and a diagnostic study tool to better prepare students for exams. For you, iLrn offers solutions organized around what you do day-to-day, saving you time on course set-up and administrative tasks. Instructor resources for the Second Edition have been thoughtfully developed with the needs of the in-class, online, and hybrid classroom instructor in mind. Exploraciones’ landmark testing program now offers two distinct strands to emphasize discrete-point testing and open-ended methodologies. Want to test culture as well? Each strand now offers an optional, “add-on” culture section that tests content from our dynamic cultural presentations. Self-tests allow students two opportunities per chapter to check their grammar and vocabulary knowledge. Tutorial quizzes offer quicker, more targeted checks that can be used at any point in the chapter. PowerPoint presentations showcase the essentials of each chapter within an elegant slide design. Sample syllabi offer robust descriptions of how to schedule content according to your semester schedule and classroom format. NEW to this edition is a transition guide to help you navigate the important changes we’ve made to the Second Edition based on instructor feedback. Vocabulary games, activity worksheets, and composition prompts make sure you have all the supplementary materials you need easily in your reach!

iLrn™ Language Learning Center gives your students everything they need to master the skills and concepts of the course.

iLrn Instructor Testimonial: Jennifer Rogers

Hear how Jennifer Rogers of Metropolitan Community College uses iLrn to reduce student anxiety around learning a foreign language.

“iLrn fosters independence. It has enabled me to meet the demand for additional online sections, without getting bogged down in email.”

“I don’t think I would teach this class without iLrn.”

“iLrn compels students to engage with the work, which is what I want to see with online student so they aren’t just staring at the screen. iLrn made me realize how important a good online language learning system is to teaching effectively online.”

“An important benefit is my students can get instant feedback [from iLrn assignments]. They know right away if they got something wrong instead of waiting for a lag time.”

“My favorite thing is all of the activities. I love the gap activities, the students LOVE the charades, and there is a huge variety of activities from which to choose. The students love it too. They can get deeper into concepts because they have a lot of different ways to learn them.”

Cengage provides a range of supplements that are updated in coordination with the main title selection. For more information about these supplements, contact your Learning Consultant.
