This intensive course is expressly designed to lead the adult beginner to a

by native speakers, grammar-acquisition exercises which facilitate
independent study, and authentic written materials to develop important
receptive skills and encourage the transition to independent reading. It
also features an abundance of pair and group activities ideal for classroom
use, as well as teacher's guidelines. Based on a style of Spanish easily
understood by most speakers, the course clarifies the main differences
between peninsular and Latin American forms and usage.
