Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I believe the 'Build-Review-Expand' approach is excellent. It is necessary to show the material first (input) and then work on the production (output), while requiring the students to take the next step and expand on what they have learned with what they already know (given their own backgrounds and previously learned skills)."

"I believe that from the intro[ductory] chapter [VIAJES] engages students at the onset with real life vocab[ulary] and situations. In my opinion, the text instills every confidence that the student would need to expand his knowledge base and go out and use Spanish on their own."

"I am very happy with the grammar and vocabulary presentations in this textbook. I find the explanations clear and easily understood."

"A good, solid intro text. Good grammar explanations, brief and concise. Nice contextual format—dialogues that use idioms and natural every-day speech to present vocab[ulary] and grammar. Engaging and motivating text for students."
