Product Description:

This Spanish language instruction text provides a communicatively-shaped sequence of vocabulary and structures, visually-structured language contexts and activities. In addition, in-text audio and video programmes provide cultural presentations, introducing students to Spain and Hispanic America. The book consists of two preliminary "pasos" and 26 chapters. The pasos encourage instructors to conduct the very first day of class entirely in Spanish, through a variety of visual stimuli. Chapters are consistently structured: goals, thematic context in which to learn and practice new vocabulary, a grammar section, in-text summary of grammar, a skills mosaic weaving together the material addressed in the chapter, and a vocabulary list.

From the Publisher:

Mosaicos transforms the Spanish classroom into a dynamic forum for linguistic and cultural interchange. Its streamlined grammatical syllabus provides students with an understanding of the basics of the language in a concise, graphically clear format.
