The Student Textbook is the colorful and engaging core of our Spanish curriculum. It presents Spanish vocabulary, grammar concepts, and picture-anchored sentences across several units. Each unit includes a song with lyrics and illustrations, an index of Q&A, a lesson on Hispanic culture, and a skit that combines vocabulary with Q&A from the chapter.

The textbook is divided into 8 chapters, each of which contains 4-5 vocabulary units. Each vocabulary unit is introduced with a song. Students can follow along by looking at the colorful illustrated vocabulary page in the textbook, or by reading the lyrics in the lyrics booklet. Each unit also includes a set of commonly used Q&A. Those Q&A are combined with the vocabulary in a skit presented at the end of each unit. A cultural point closes the chapter. Reading skills and grammar concepts such as masculine/feminine, adjective/noun agreement, present/past/future tenses are introduced by using associations, color-coded words, and creative visuals to make it easy for children to understand and learn at their own pace.
The Interactive CD provides students and instructors with an interactive Flash version of the book, divided into five sections: Pronunciation, Songs, Vocabulary, Q&A, and Present/Past/Future Tenses
The Skits DVD presents humorous skits acted by native speakers with Spanish subtitles.
