Rostros is a new 2nd year Spanish text that puts cultural understanding at the forefront. Through engaging interviews and thoughtfully selected readings and discussion topics, your students will become more proficient in Spanish and also grow to appreciate the cultures where Spanish is spoken more fully.
We don’t just want students who can conjugate verbs in Spanish. We want students who are willing and able to cross cultural boundaries and connect meaningfully with Spanish speakers for the rest of their lives. If that is your goal as well, you will want to take a look at Rostros!
