This collection of 48 dialogues is based on the undergraduate and post graduate experiences of three Spanish teachers as they studied abroad. Students learn what awaits them when they travel to these areas. Sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, these every-day situations provide a chance for students to improve their target language pronunciation as they role play. An introductory vocab. list keeps them from running to the dictionary as they read. Mini-grammar lessons reinforce their writing skills. Culture vignettes expand on the situations of the dialogues. This can be a stand alone text for conversational Spanish or a supplementary text for lower levels.
