Puntos de partida boasts a well-deserved reputation as a beginning Spanish book that is consistently reliable. When instructors need a book that won't let them down, this is the text they turn to. The chapter structure is straightforward, consistent, and reflects what instructors actually do in class. The grammar explanations are written in plain English, are easy for students to understand, and contain plenty of examples. The exercises and activities are varied and plentiful, do not require deciphering, and can be counted on to work. The superb supplements package is painstakingly coordinated with the student text, and includes an Instructor's Manual that is a lifesaver to any teacher, especially those with little experience. Puntos de partida fifth edition offers a variety of new features, all sure to please but also sure to work. A new audiotape accompanies the student text, providing listening practice. Several chapters explore new themes, such as pop culture and art. A new culture feature called En los Estados Unidos... focuses on U.S. Hispanics. A beautiful new design makes the text clearer, more attractive, and easier to use. Over half the readings are new to this edition and longer readings are broken into manageable chunks. Finally, an exciting new video, rich in both language and culture, is integrated with the text and incorporated into a new multimedia CD-ROM.
