This workbook was designed as an introductory tool that would allow students of Spanish to learn to communicate in a natural, personalized and rewarding way. Students learn communicative skills through visually focused contexts which they can relate to their own experiences. Easy-to-answer questions require students to speak about their daily lives, express opinions and supply real information. Topic-based lessons dealing with functional situations are meant to develop proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Cultural connections are built into the various lesson components.
