Editorial Reviews

Review

"The post-reading questions are very good, since it forces students to examine their own country, and then expand on what they know through comparisons to countries in Latin America, which can be an expanded portion of the Temas de conversacion section. The conversational expressions I believe are essential to helping students have a meaningful conversation as well as sounding more like native speakers. This will increase their confidence in conversational techniques."

"I really like the variety of exercises and the grammatical descriptions. The vocabulary and chapter topics are very relevant, as they reflect all aspects of culture and current events. Many of the debates and conversational exercises force students to examine their own culture and heritage as well, in order to be able to comment on and compare and contrast them with Hispanic culture."

"The grammar and vocabulary sections are very good, and I feel they are an asset to helping students acquire Spanish."

"I really like the representation of various countries, gender of authors, and styles of literature in this mix."

"The types of activities are well thought through and have a balanced ratio of individual versus pair and group activities. I also think the activities and their variety provide enough practice for the students. This is done very well. Conversemos is a great part of this textbook. It gives ample opportunity for students to apply what they have learned in an interesting manner. I applaud this portion of the textbook."

It was wrapped up and packaged nicely. It is a school book so I can't say that I am fond of it but it is a good learning tool
