Destinos: An Introduction to Spanish
A video instructional series in Spanish for college and high school classrooms consisting of 52 half-hour video programs divided into two parts (Part I programs 1-26, Part II programs 27-52), Destinos teaches speaking, listening, and comprehension skills in Spanish. This telenovela, or Spanish soap opera, immerses students in everyday situations with native speakers and introduces the cultures, accents, and dialects of Mexico, Spain, Argentina, and Puerto Rico. Understanding of Spanish and appreciation of many Hispanic cultures increases as students become absorbed in the mysterious and entertaining story. Closed captioning in Spanish can be used as a teaching and literacy resource. Worksheets and activites focus on specific grammar topics and communication in the target language is our constant goal.
