What sets this program apart?

Thematic units in each chapter present a selection of varied, practical, and high-frequency vocabulary in visual and written contexts. Activities range from identification in the chapter-opening art scenes and other input-based exercises (e.g., categorizing, associations, etc.), to personal expression and situational conversations that require use of the new vocabulary, resulting in effective acquisition of new words.

In Dicho y hecho, students are encouraged to develop cultural awareness by discovering connections and making cross-cultural comparisons. Real-life stories personalize the intertwining of cultures and invite learners to reflect on their own cultural perspectives.
