Through realistic pacing of material, easy-to-use grammar, practical vocabulary, and a modern video storyline that contextualizes grammar and vocabulary, Nexos provides rich linguistic and cultural content that promotes language learning.
Throughout the text, situations, vocabulary, and activities reflect a technologically up-to-date, Internet proficient Spanish-speaking world that appeals to contemporary students. Other practical, day-to-day themes that command student attention include fashion, sports, journalism, medical professions, volunteer organizations, and a focus on U.S. Latinos and their contributions to society.
