Mosaicos' common-sense, communicative approach addresses the realities of the Elementary Spanish classroom where students come to class with questions about grammar or feel anxious about communicating in a second language by presenting grammar as well as vocabulary in a communicative context within the main body of each chapter and by offering carefully sequenced sets of activities that build student confidence and provide abundant opportunities for communicative practice. Strategies as well as practice opportunities are provided for listening, speaking, reading and writing, and cultural understanding is developed along with those communication skills. A flexible set of supplemental materials including electronic versions of the Workbook and Lab Manual, a Student Video CD-ROM and Student Audio CD, allow students to learn and practice on their own, outside of class. Media, including Entrevistas, a new video featuring interviews with native speakers of Spanish and Notas, a new text feature that includes songs from across the Spanish-speaking world and accompanying activities, enhance the communicative goals of the course.Castells, Matilde is the author of 'Mosaicos Spanish as a World Language', published 2005 under ISBN 9780131544208 and ISBN 0131544209.
