The new, updated edition of this combination textbook and workbook is designed primarily for classroom use on an intermediate level, and can also serve as a college-level review manual or for independent study. It makes an excellent follow-up to Spanish Now! Level 1, but can be used by all students of Spanish who have already learned language fundamentals. Emphasis is on oral proficiency –conversational Spanish and listening comprehension– but it also gives thorough presentation of Spanish grammar, sentence structure, verb usage, advanced vocabulary, and reading and writing ability in Spanish. Work units toward the end of the book are on an advanced level and serve as challenges to students who are very fluent in Spanish. A teacher’s manual is presented at the back of the book. Included with this new edition is a set of three compact discs that provide additional instruction in listening comprehension and correct pronunciation.
