¡Anda! Curso intermedio 1/e is the first Intermediate Spanish book conceptualized from the outset to meet the needs of today's language teachers and learners. It covers the last 2 semesters in the 4-semester ¡Anda! program. In the last few years, classroom contact hours have been reduced drastically, class sizes have increased and students' lives have become busier than ever. Instructors don't have time to cover everything that they feel is needed and more is being asked of them with fewer resources. At the same time, language teachers want to spend as much time exposing students to Hispanic culture and practicing communication as they do with grammar. But, there simply isn't enough time or resources. The result: Many instructors end up galloping through their elementary Spanish text at the expense of their Intermediate course to try to give students the broadest grammatical exposure possible. Now they have a new option: ¡Anda!
