Sabias que...? PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Sabias que...? free pdf "Sabias Que...? Beginning Spanish", third edition, is an innovative first year Spanish programme developed around a content-based approach to language learning. The content-based approach of "Sabias Que...?" is unique to first-year Spanish texts- students learn Spanish by talking and reading about such topics as sociology, pop psychology and modern technology, to name a few. By focussing on topics of interest to them, "Sabias Que...?" gives students something they want to talk about. In this way, "Sabias Que...?" gives students both an incentive to learn new vocabulary and structures (so they can express their own ideas and opinions) as well as a context in which to use them. Every student copy of "Sabias Que...?", third edition, comes from the warehouse packaged with two audiocassettes designed to improve students' listening comprehension skills. Commentaries by native Spanish speakers on the student tape and interesting cultural material in the text offer students opportunities to compare their own cultures and values with others.
