Rostros  – Intermediate College Spanish Language and Culture

Real people. Real places. Real Spanish.

Teaching college online is hard. Your textbook should help!

Teaching Spanish online is tough when your textbook wasn’t designed for it. Rostros promotes student-driven, online learning. Stop struggling to adapt your old textbook to a new normal. Let us help!

Made by teachers – for teachers.

Rostros was created by college professors who knew exactly what their old textbooks were missing: relevance, passion, and deep connections to the humans who speak Spanish. If you want to introduce your students to real people and real Spanish, you will love Rostros!

Two Essential Learning Components

Online Interactive Program

Learners spend time outside class in our online learning platform. Hundreds of videos from Spanish speakers highlight the places they live and work, utilizing real, natural Spanish. Vocabulary practice, ongoing culture screens, rich photography, and grammar practice make the online interactive a compelling experience.


Flexible readings with questions, comprehension checks, and extensive in-class discussion prompts are the central focus and work perfectly in-person or online. Available in paper or digital format.

How is Rostros unique?

Connect your college students to the real world.

You won’t find any cartoons or stilted scripts in Rostros. Instead, you will find authentic images, videos, and voices ranging from Pablo Neruda to Bolivian miners in Potosí. We give them space to speak for themselves, tell your students what they think is important about their culture, and give your students hundreds of hours of natural aural input in the process.

Easy to use materials in any format.

Whether you teach in person, online, or a hybrid, the flexible nature of Rostros means you won’t fight to fit it into your unique situation. Amid the uncertainty of teaching during Covid-19, Rostros lets you focus on the things – and people – that matter most.
