Épocas y avances offers a communicative-humanistic approach to second language acquisition. It emphasizes particular aspects of the history, literature, art, society, geography, language, and culture of Spain and Latin America through a series of readings and related activities specifically designed to enhance linguistic proficiency.

The cuaderno de trabajo is designed to:

  • Reinforce and enhance the vocabulary and grammatical structures learned in the principal text
  • Provide an additional review of fundamental concepts
  • Offer oral comprehension practice with an original audio program for each unit
  • Stimulate interest in the topics presented by encouraging additional research and investigation

"I liked the concept of these materials. I think both culture and literature are very well blended in with the linguistic components. I find the contents very interesting and appealing to anyone, but more specifically to those who are taking cultural and literature courses as well. It's a fantastic book to familiarize students not only with the target language, but also with its historical context."—Professor Manuel Galofaro, Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, Hofstra University

"Épocas y avances provided textual and audio material that kept the interest of a superior independent study student focused for an entire semester."—Dr. Teresa R. Arrington, Department of Language and Literature, Blue Mountain College

"Combined approach to culture easy to adapt for use in different courses."—Dr. Teresa R. Arrington, Department of Language and Literature, Blue Mountain College
