    INTRODUCTION

    The Third Edition of Open Door to Spanish and the accompanying cassettes have been thoroughly updated and revised, and are appropriate for classroom use or for self-instruction. After completing both levels of the program, users can look forward to conducting simple conversations successfully in Spanish as well as understanding many advertisements and articles written in Spanish. Even a rudimentary knowledge of Spanish can be important when applying for a job. Applicants with an ability to understand more than one language are often given preference for jobs in medicine, social work, tourism, government, and other businesses.

    APPROACH

    Margarita Madrigal's books have been used by thousands of students around the world. Former successful students applaud the Madrigal Method: its simplicity, its copious use of cognates, and its humor. The conversations, explanations, exercises, activities, and tapes in Open Door to Spanish teach students to recognize the large number of words and expressions that are alike in English and in Spanish (cognates), strategies and rules for converting English words to Spanish, hints for identifying large numbers of new words in Spanish, and formulas to help students use Spanish verbs to describe events in the past, present, and future.

    Students report extraordinary retention rates and the human quality of instructors adopting Margarita's approach. The many conversations in Open Door to Spanish reflect what people say every day on the streets, in restaurants and cafes, on the phone, or at home with friends and family. Spanish is fun!
