"The most significant improvements are apparent in the activities; here the authors have made the right choices in simplifying directions, introducing more variety in the activities, and refining their focus. The same holds true for the integration of cultural information in all of the activities."
"Plazas is the most appealing program to teach elementary Spanish because of its vast array of electronic materials. This variety of materials make teaching and learning Spanish a world open for students' exploration and entertainment."
"I'm really impressed with the changes you've made to Plazas. The layout and structure of the book has obviously been enhanced and improved."
"The authors clearly demonstrate a knowledge of how students go about learning a language and are supremely faithful to their approach. The emphasis on re-integrations of re-presentation of materials is really revolutionary for recent Spanish textbooks!"
"I am impressed with the thoroughness of the approach. The authors have identified difficult tasks (integrating culture into the course, making grammatical explanations understandable, promoting communication) and seek to offer a variety of remedies."
