PARA SIEMPRE is an easily accessible, streamlined Introductory Spanish program that focuses on oral production and conversation through modeled dialogs and oral activities. Students are introduced to high-frequency vocabulary and grammatical structures that are necessary for conversing about everyday topics and situations. Presenting grammar as a tool to communicate rather than a set of rules to memorize facilitates active participation in open-ended activities and in-class conversations. The flow of material in each unit is straightforward and easy to follow, and the reachable goals and guidance that students receive as they progress through each unit build a sense of achievement and enjoyment, fostering a continued interest in the study of Spanish at higher levels.
