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.

Comunidades gives today’s Spanish students exactly what they want: the challenge of learning from native-speakers of Spanish, directly participating in Latino cultures, developing their pre-professional skills and contributing something positive to society within the security of a clear, safe and tested curriculum that fosters their success.
