INTRODUCTION

The Third Edition of Open Door to Spanish and the accompanying cassettes have been thoroughly updated and revised, and are appropriate for classroom use or for self-instruction. After completing both levels of the program, users can look forward to conducting simple conversations successfully in Spanish as well as understanding many advertisements and articles written in Spanish. Even a rudimentary knowledge of Spanish can be important when applying for a job. Applicants with an ability to understand more than one language are often given preference for jobs in medicine, social work, tourism, government, and other businesses.
