This is a wonderful workbook for the beginning Spanish student. It provides many stimulating topics for practicing conversation, writing short statements/paragraphs, and so on. The book is based on the premise that the subjects students want to communicate about are the keys to introducing the language. By encouraging students to speak and write about their interests, the language emerges as a vibrant, vital, meaningful tool. This book would be a great asset to homeschoolers or beginning high school or college students who are inspired to practice the Spanish language through conversation or writing practice.
