For Beginning Spanish courses. Gente is the North American adaptation of the most successful text in Europe. Gente takes a task-based approach where students learn by doing. The tasks are activities that have contexts, non-linguistic and linguistic goals, and non-linguistic and linguistic outcomes. By performing the various tasks required of them, students learn Spanish in a fast and pragmatic way and are able to express themselves in real-world contexts and solve real-world problems. Conceived as a classroom manual, Gente offers a rich supplements package to support student learning outside of class. One of the most innovative supplements is the Student Grammar CD-ROM, which contains a video teacher who actually teaches grammar.
