This Spanish program includes components designed to help young learners acquire Spanish vocabulary and phrases as well as basic Spanish grammar in order to communicate naturally. In this level, the main characters are Kate and Becky. They and their parents travel to Spanish-speaking countries such as Mexico, Spain, the Dominican Republic, and Colombia, exploring authentic cultural aspects as they learn common expressions in Spanish. In this Spanish textbook students will learn Spanish through fun songs and chants as they talk about family, school, pets, games, recycling, the Panama Canal, and other exciting grade-level appropriate themes and topics. Students will be able to quickly review important vocabulary by looking it up in the Spanish picture dictionary included in the glossary.
