Vaya! Nuevo Cassette C by Michael Calvert, Michael Buckby

This three-stage new edition of this Spanish course for beginners leads to public examinations. Experienced practitioners and users of !Vaya! have been consulted and their suggestions have been incorporated into this new edition. It has been written to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum and the 5-14 Guidelines. Stages 1, 2 and 3 of !Vaya! 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. Stages 2 and 3 of !Vaya! Nuevo are based on a long stay in Cantabria. 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 3. This third of three audio cassettes for stage 3 provides a variety of new and recorded listening material, including songs and poems.
