Your students will love learning Spanish the Soleado way! In just 25 to 30 hours of classes they will be conversing and interacting in Spanish.
Classroom-tested in continuing study courses by universities, colleges and school boards, Soleado is fast-paced and entertaining. It is a three-level course, each level with a workbook and corresponding CD.
Each unit provides the instructor with a completely prepared class. The workbooks feature illustrated diálogos, presentaciones, prácticas and interacciones, all presented with lots of visuals, humor and culture. And to end the class on a high note, popular Hispanic canciones.
I have been using Soleado since Patricia Martin published it in 1995. The author invites us to travel with a cast of Canadian characters through the Hispanic world; the book helps make my classes lively, fun, and true voyages of discovery. Patricia Martin introduces the Spanish language with an array of activities using dialogue, grammar, vocabulary, cultural facts, and fun songs from the Hispanic world... more

Students will learn how to describe minor health problems, make casual conversation with the people they meet, and talk about past experiences.
Soleado 3 takes the communication learned in the first two manuals to a deeper level, providing more sophisticated structures and topics including traveling, art, music, environment, gourmet food, advice, opinions and more.
Soleado uses an eclectic method, all under the umbrella of the communicative approach. The students have to constantly interact with one another in practical and simple conversations, giving them the opportunity to communicate in Spanish immediately and effectively.
There is a natural presentation of new structures through dialogues, visuals and examples, and a constant relationship between newly introduced linguistic structures and the functional objective of the unit.
Professionally recorded, the CD not only brings the characters to life, but also helps with pronunciation, intonation and comprehension. Different accents and expressions from the Hispanic world are used, and popular Hispanic songs from Spain and Latinamerica provide an entertaining way to end the class.
Spanish used exclusively
Apart from the objectives in English and French, this course uses Spanish exclusively throughout. The many illustrations and examples as well as the varied exercises will help your students to learn Spanish the natural way.
An online Spanish to English glossary is available for each unit of Módulo 1.
Hispanic world and culture
The workbooks present a series of illustrated characters who explore the Hispanic world and culture. The stories are engaging and humorous. Students follow the characters through various situations learning new structures and vocabulary as they progress through the units.
PresentacionesThe new structures and vocabulary presented in each dialogue are introduced formally in the "presentaciones" through drawings and examples. They are followed by prácticas, a variety of practice exercises.
The "prácticas" are a controlled way of practicing the new structures or vocabulary. In class they are usually done in pairs, or they can be assigned as homework. An answer key at the end of each chapter allows the students to check on their work. Each "práctica" is usually followed by an interacción, a less controlled activity.
With the "interacciones" students have the opportunity to converse through a variety of classroom activities such as interviewing classmates, role-playing, and creating dialogues.
