Practical Spanish Conversational Courses
Using Sight First™ Methodology

In this series based on the Destinos videos, we utilize a balanced approach to language learning for adults, which we call Sight First.™  After early adulthood, our learning shifts from an auditory dimension to visual.  We teach you the four basic language skills in each lesson.  We start with the skill of reading, progress to writing, then listening and finally speaking.  Thus the same material is properly balanced in the four different skill areas necessary in order to gain mastery of the language.  …further explanation…

Advanced Review and Conversation Program

The novella, El Bastón, contained within the Temas y Lemas text, goes back to the Spanish Civil War and traces the character of Librada de la Vega and her half-Basque husband, Narciso Carrillo Arizgoiti, as they face the inevitable moral conflicts of war.

Through the story an intermediate to advanced review of the Spanish language is presented.  More vocabulary and phrases are presented in the context of the story as well as more advanced role play situations at the end of each chapter.
