Turns grammar review into a fun, culturally enriching experience by placing it in a realistic meaningful context. This is achieved through the inclusion of brief readings, lots of realia and photos, and profiles of famous Hispanics. Self-contained chapters allow instructors to cover material in whatever order they prefer. Crystal clear grammatical explanations are immediately applied in dialogues and prose. English is used to help clarify more difficult points. Direction lines and exercises are written entirely in Spanish. Unique "Escenas" illustrate vocabulary and provide a springboard for conversations and activities. For example, a busy restaurant and buying clothes. Closely coordinated with the accompanying reader and workbook to reinforce key grammatical and vocabulary points.
