Curriculum/Books

Our interactive Spanish curriculum, ¡A Conversar!, helps your students learn general conversational Spanish (Levels 1-4), while our hands-on occupational Spanish curriculum, ¡A Trabajar!, focuses more on Spanish in the workplace.  You can even use these materials as part of a "blended learning" approach - teach part of your occupational Spanish class in the classroom while your students study part online!


We have partnered with Lulu.com to offer our curriculum in either a print version or an E-book, which can be downloaded immediately.

 ¡A CONVERSAR!

Conversational Spanish Curriculum

Do your students need to know the rules of when to use "Ser" and "Estar"? Do you want them to study direct and indirect objects? Do they need to know exactly when to use the preterite and imperfect tenses?

NO?
