-- Gente is the only truly task-based program that transports you, the learner, into an immersive environment. Learners interact with authentic language from the Hispanic world through a series of carefully-sequenced communicative activities culminating in a real-life task. “Tasks” are collaborative projects that integrate speaking, listening, reading and writing to complete them with the skills that are needed to communicate effectively in the real world! With Gente, you learn by doing, communicate with a purpose and emerge as an independent learner with the confidence to speak Spanish in a spontaneous, natural way.

We all learn better by doing.
Imagine trying to learn to play golf, swim, cook, computer skills–almost anything–through explanation “about” rather than immersion in the actual experience. When we learn any new skill, we need lots of structured input at the beginning as we begin to try out our fledging abilities. As we become better at it, we produce more (output) and benefit from continued input (but less of it) as we refine our ability to do thetask at hand. With Gente, students achieve a high level of oral proficiency as they learn by doing through a task-based approach. With Gente, students can point to and identify concrete things they can now do and talk about–in Spanish!
