Part of an integrated Spanish programme designed to help students gain a working knowledge of the language, the series comprises a grammar text, a workbook, a literary reader, a cultural reader and an activities book. The books all share a common grammatical and thematic organization which should facilitate a flexible approach to teaching. The books all increase in difficulty at about the same rate. This reader introduces readers to various essays, short stories, plays and poems by Hispanic authors. The selections are accompanied by advice on what to look for in each. Many of the pieces are not commonly found in anthologies.
