Al corriente: Curso intermedio de español
By Blake, Robert J., Ramos, Alicia, and Marks, Martha Alford
A single-volume intermediate Spanish program, Al corriente places readings at the core of each chapter. The readings both literary and contemporary authentic serve as the basis for each of the chapter’s vocabulary development, grammar, and many of the communicative activities. The real-life materials are interesting to students and effective for building language skills. Reading strategies help students understand the most important aspects of the readings. Pair and group activities, integrated with the grammar sections, encourage meaningful communication.
