Extensive Listening Practice
Students learn a very real spoken form of Spanish, and become accustomed to dealing with authentic audio. This prepares them very well for actually using Spanish in “real life”, either in Spanish speaking countries or with Spanish speakers in their own community. We feel that it is crucial to get students used to actual Spanish, because traditional listening texts, scripted to cover grammatical features and spoken slowly and clearly by professional voice talent, aids comprehension but does not actually prepare students well for listening “in the wild”.
