Students will accompany John and Amy in their cultural adventures, visiting eight countries in the Spanish-speaking world. Students study and learn Spanish as John and Amy go shopping in Paraguay, learn about farm animals in Costa Rica, and find out about weather patterns in Chile. These Spanish lessons and activities encourage students to not only listen and speak but also to read and write. Students apply new Spanish vocabulary and Spanish grammar as they go through this level. Upon completion of each unit, students write entries to an amazing geographical journal they create themselves! Maps of the Americas and the Iberian Peninsula, as well as a Spanish dictionary in the form of an illustrated glossary that includes basic expressions in Spanish are available for reference at the end of this Spanish textbook.
