What sets this program apart?

The Protagonistas approach to the linguistic aspects of interaction is both communicative and functional-notional. This accessible text emphasizes task-driven communication within meaningful, pragmatic contexts of everyday life.

Each lesson introduces students to a protagonista, an individual from the Spanish-speaking world; the protagonista is the basis for exploring aspects of culture and daily life, all the while modeling language. This approach imparts cultural and linguistic information to students not as ends in and of themselves, but as the means to an end: communication.
