About the Authors
  • This intensive course is expressly designed to lead the adult beginner to a comprehensive knowledge of Spanish. The course gives balanced attention to the four key language skills: the development of listening comprehension and speaking skills is supported by quality audio materials recorded by native speakers, while answer keys support written work and grammar-acquisition exercises, and facilitate independent study. Authentic written materials develop important receptive skills and encourage the transition to independent reading. • Based on a style of Spanish easily understood by most speakers, thoughtful explanations make clear the main differences between peninsular and Latin American forms and usage • Features an abundance of pair and group work activities ideal for classroom use • Authentic materials and website references foster cultural awareness • Clear, attractive layout with lively illustrations to reinforce learning • Extensive reference features including a grammar guide, verb tables and vocabulary lists • Teachers' guidelines promote practical application in the classroom.

    • Comprehensive - covers all the material required to reach intermediate level and communicate confidently in Spanish
    • Learner centered - organised to maximise student participation with extensive activities. Lively presentation, lavishly illustrated
    • Extensive reference features/supplements - such as learner guide, student guide to grammar terms, verb tables, vocabulary checklist, teachers' guidelines, cassettes, answer key

    'Camino al español is a no-frills, though attractive, comprehensive and often imaginative textbook that fills a significant gap in the market.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

    '… Camino al español is a first-rate beginner's course that fills a space in the teaching of Spanish to adults and young adults. For schools with Spanish A level, further education colleges and university departments requiring new materials for Spanish beginners, this course is undoubtedly worthy of consideration.' Vida Hispánica
