Facetas, 5th Edition
Facetas is a one-semester version of Enfoques that takes an interactive, communicative approach. It focuses on real communication in meaningful contexts to develop and consolidate students’ speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Facetas also stresses cultural competency, which plays an integral role in language learning.
What sets this program apart?
The Fotonovela video is a twelve-episode story about a not-so-typical family, set against the unique background of Oaxaca, Mexico. Cultural elements and stunning aerial footage drive the fast-paced storyline. Humor and dramatic tension, along with many surprising twists and turns, promise to keep you engaged and give you a sense of daily life in Mexico.
Facetas also incorporates short films, fine art, literature selections, and cultural readings as springboards for discussion and writing, while providing frameworks to help students use language creatively.
