Nuevo should prepare students for GCSE/Key Stage 4 examinations and Standard Grade. The key features of this course include: a carefully structured progression throughout; meets the need of a wide ability range; fully communicative course with short-term, attainable goals; a wealth of opportunity for fun and creativity, including songs, poems, cartoons, puzzles and games; encourages independent learning, and develops study skills (for example dictionary skills); fully integrated assessment, both formative and summative; emphasis on use of the target language throughout; and a fully integrated information technology package. Stage 1 of !Vaya! Nuevo is set in Malaga, and uses as its theme a holiday in the Costa del Sol. All the topics and activities are set in an authentic context, and prepare students for such a holiday, whilst giving insights into everyday Spanish life. Each of the 14 unidades explores a different topic, and provides short-term goals and a carefully graded progression. The students' book provides: a clear statement of objectives at the beginning of each unidad; at the end of each unidad, a statement of the new language areas which have been covered Ahora se... ; a bilingual list of key phrases and vocabulary covered in the unidad; valid tasks and authentic, illustrated material throughout; a wide variety of activities in each of the four skill areas, including mixed-skill tasks; background information about the everyday life, customs and culture of Spain and Latin America; at the end of the book, a detailed grammar section, including deduction of grammatical rules and further language practice; and also at the end of the book, a comprehensive vocabulary list for stage 1.
