Botero´s art speaks to young people and he is a personal favorite.
Stroll through a market in Ecuador and talk about good manners while shopping and learn the ins and outs of bargaining.
Such fun. Such cultural enrichment and all the time the students are learning Spanish in context. Hurrah for content driven materials!
Entirely in the target language. (Of course!)
An entire year (or semester) of cultural content-based, interdisciplinary materials for Spanish 2 or 3! All organized and put together so the cultural component has the importance it merits without the teacher having to scramble.
Most of the chapters in this book are about the Andean countries and are as varied as their geography. Special emphasis is given to Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia and there are some chapters on Spain. The chapters deal with art, science, education, animals, archeology and more! They include the Amazon, the Potosí mine, private and public education.
A teacher's edition is included FREE of charge with every set of 20 student books. It includes the answer key, model tests and additional cultural information for every chapter.
