I am an instructor at college and I have been teaching with this book for 3 semesters now and I think it is an excellent book. It is a lot of fun and it covers a lot of interesting topics. It is a bit different from other Spanish textbooks publish in the US, with more pictures and more engaging and fun exercises. My students and I love the short movies that are integrated in this program and the online component (free with a new book). They are both very useful to become familiar with real Spanish and not the distorted version you get sometimes for languages students.

I strongly recommend this book for intermediate levels.

Imagina is an intermediate Spanish textbook, used throughout the State college system of Florida.
The text is very good, with the look and feel of a glossy type magazine. Emphasis is on reading, writing and speaking. The text is rather difficult however. If you did not work really hard in the beginning Spanish classes offered at the schools, this text is not for you.
You also need a good Spanish/English dictionary as the 'dictionary' / grammar indices in the back of the book are poor (in my opinion)
Really meaty text and holds up well during classroom discussions. It would be a good idea to use your Elementary Spanish text as a 'backup' or review for Imagina. It's that challenging.

Ugh, where do I begin with this one? The layout is frantic and confusing, with loads of dsitracting bright colors. About 1/3 of the book is little side-stories that are too shallow to be worth reading. Important grammar rules are hidden in various places on the page, so it's easy to miss parts, and there is a seperate grammar guide to each lesson in the back of the book, so you have to constantly flip back and forth between the two. Chapters markings are hidden in the inside margins, making it difficult to jump to whatever chapter you're studying. Questions on the material require answers that are either practically YES/NO, or require abilities well beyond the level of the book.

The accompanying audio files are on the same site as the workbook/lab manual, but the videos are on a completely different one requiring a seperate registration and password.

The online homework is either graded by the computer, the instructor, or both. You don't find out until you've already submitted the answers to a given assignment. The computer apparently only accepts one combination of characters, so any omitted accent marks/misspellings result in an "incorrect" mark. It doesn't tell you what the correct answer is, but it will let you make repeated attempts, which the site says aren't factored into the cumulative score. Whether this refers to an attempt, or the entire assignment is anyone's guess. The instructions are vague, which obvously doesn't work well with the specific desired answers. The whole online part is an exercise in frustration.

To sum up- This book/system is expensive, flashy, and extremely frustrating. I have never come across a text that fails on so many levels.

Don't buy a used copy of this book if you are using it for a class, which I did, and then had to buy a brand new one.
A new book comes with a one time user code to be used for online assignments which your teacher will assign. Without this code, you cannot access the material.

I was a member of the original reviewer team of the 1st edition of Imagina. Since then, French, Italian, German and a new Spanish edition have been published, but all with the same basic format: a dynamic layout, short-subject films, contemporary cultural issues, HIGHLIGHTS of problematic grammatical issues, excerpts from prose, poetry and novels and people from the culture who are making a difference in the world. Each section of each chapter is the same length and laid out similarly, so it provides you and your students a rhythm from the very beginning of the school year to work through each chapter. The 2nd Edition of IMAGINA is little improved from the 1st edition. The online Supersite that accompanies all 4 language texts is by far the best online companion I have seen for a book - my students whether online or in the traditional classroom love this book and the Supersite. I do not recommend the paper workbook - the Supsersite is far superior as you can click through to all the resources you need instantly.

Good book. Its the instructors edition. Unfortunately it doesn't come with the online codes so it would have been cheaper for me to buy it new from the bookstore. But it shipped fast and was as described. Good seller!

This book was not purchased as NEW, but it was in perfect condition as if it were new! It even had the passcode for the supersite website which was not even scratched off yet, so I can still use it for the site, saving me 60 bucks! There were no marks on any of the pages, and I bought it for literally for only one tenth of the price that they were selling at the university bookstore! I am very satisfied with this order! I bought another book that was supposed to be NEW from another seller but it was USED. This seller EXCEEDED expectations! I will definately purchse from them again! Thanks!
