The MindTap® Mobile App for Spanish: MindTap® Mobile App for Spanish: Plazas, 5th Edition is a supplement to the core course textbook or digital learning tool you use for your course. The vocabulary terms and sentences practiced in this app are from the course textbook and each one has a recording of a native speaker pronouncing it, which students can listen to as often as they would like. The app provides immediate feedback on pronunciation and allows students to go back and listen to their recording so they can better understand where their pronunciation could be improved. This app allows students to track performance and identify specific phrase types that are particularly challenging to them. The MindTap® Mobile App for Spanish provides audio-enhanced flashcards for vocabulary, quizzes focused on specific vocabulary from the core course textbook, pronunciation practice activities for vocabulary, and a results screen that shows progress and achievement. To successfully use the app, instructors must activate the associated MindTap course and share the course code with students. Once activated, instructors may assign and track pronunciation practice in the MindTap course. Alternatively, instructors may simply request that students complete the chapter-specific activities in the app and then take a screen shot of their results screen to email to the instructor. Instructors may have as much or as little oversight of students’ practice experiences in the app.

This streamlined system features practice in structures and vocabulary, abundant listening comprehension practice with new dialogues, simulated conversation, and pronunciation practice, as well as exercises to test students' comprehension of updated cultural material from the text. The Workbook also features "A repasar" self-tests at the end of each chapter that allow students to assess their mastery of the targeted structures and vocabulary.
