Along with it is a new video program containing six award-winning short films, all delivered within an intuitive and understandable unit organization. INTERACCIONES employs a tried-and-true pedagogical approach with special attention to the use of language in context and the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I haven't found a book I like more in terms of clear grammar and excellent vocab presentation, choice of words and expressions, regeneration of words, etc."

"I like the topics and themes it covers, and how it does so. Emphasis on skills and strategies, not just on content. Rich material and activities. Nice progression from mechanical to meaningful to communicative."

"I am highly impressed by the rich and diversified content of INTERACCIONES in all four areas as well as the analytical and critical thinking incentives throughout the text. I certainly believe that INTERACCIONES is a well thought out intermediate textbook and is highly recommendable for classes using communicative approach."

'Situaciones' section: These sections are FANTASTIC! The dialogues are very effective. I think the students will understand much more when they see the dialogs 'in action.'"

"The inclusion of every day idiomatic expressions in the vocabulary expansion is an innovation that we do not find very often."
