Overview

Ready to take your Spanish to the next level? RUMBOS is the intermediate Spanish textbook designed to "fill in the gaps" for you no matter how much Spanish you've retained from your first Spanish course. RUMBOS will lead you to higher levels of communicative competence through the combination of functional and contextualized vocabulary presentations, targeted practice of more advanced and often problematic grammatical structures, and process-oriented reading and writing sections with integrated skill-building strategies. Authentic literary readings, academic writing tasks, engaging short films, and supportive activities geared to oral presentations will ensure that you are prepared for advanced language study.
