View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In 1992, the Annenberg/CPB Project, WGBH, and McGraw-Hill introduced the acclaimed videocourse for Spanish, Destinos. Taking as its model the distinctly Hispanic genre of the telenovela, Destinos offered instructors an exciting new way to teach their students Spanish language and culture and to do so in an authentic, compelling, and conversation-provoking context. The result was an immediate success. In 1997, McGraw-Hill introduced an Alternate Edition of the Destinos text and print ancillaries. While the original print materials were intended to serve both the distant learner as well as the classroom student, the new Destinos: Alternate Edition is designed specifically to suit the classroom. A more colorful design, paired and grouped activities, more personalized activities, and helpful workbook grammar charts are just some of the features to be found in Destinos: Alternate Edition. In addition, new supplements for the program include an Annotated Instructor's Edition, a Testing Program, and an exciting new CD-ROM. The original Destinos will remain available for use with distant learners.
