Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Comunidades: más allá del aula is the very first Spanish textbook with a complete Spanish community service learning curriculum.  In this increasingly popular method of teaching Spanish, students spend part of their time doing substantial community service learning work within a Spanish-speaking community organization and another part of their time in the classroom.

About the Author

Annie Abbott is Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign where her students' ratings consistently rank her as an excellent instructor.  She has almost ten years experience coordinating courses and training TAs and has served as Acting Director of Basic Language Instruction in Spanish.


In 2004, Ann revised an existing advanced Spanish conversation course to include community service learning.  Twelve students worked with one community partner that first semester.  Now an average of almost 100 students work with at least eight community partners each semester. Ann directs "Spanish & Illinois" (, a program that offers a full range of opportunities for UIUC students to use Spanish in the real world.

More About the Author

I coordinate the Spanish community service-learning (CSL) program at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Up to 100 Spanish students per semester work in the local community with about a dozen community partners, proving that Spanish CSL can be instituted almost anywhere in the US. CSL can also be used to teach almost any subject; in fact, my book, "Comunidades: Mas alla del aula" (Pearson/Prentice Hall) has been used as a supplement to teach subjects as varied as social entrepreneurship, business Spanish, social media and journalism.

I love teaching with Spanish CSL because the community partners tell me that they appreciate the students' work, and I can see that the students learn about the world, not just Spanish. But when I started using Spanish CSL in 2004, I could not find textbooks that gave students the information they needed to actually be effective in the community. That's why I wrote "Comunidades." I hope it will help other instructors to take the plunge and incorporate Spanish CSL in their teaching.

This profile picture was taken at my desk at home. That's where I write. Every day I write something: book projects, teaching materials, research articles, my blog ( updates on Facebook and Twitter. I'm one of those lucky people whose job and passion are one and the same.
