Mosaicos’ common-sense, communicative approach addresses the realities of the Elementary Spanish classroom—where students come to class with questions about grammar or feel anxious about communicating in a second language—by presenting grammar as well as vocabulary in a communicative context within the main body of each chapter and by offering carefully sequenced sets of activities that build student confidence and provide abundant opportunities for communicative practice. Strategies as well as practice opportunities are provided for listening, speaking, reading and writing, and cultural understanding is developed along with those communication skills.
