Metasis an exciting new version of the best-selling intermediate Spanish textbookPunto y aparte,created in response to requests from reviewers for a version ofPunto y apartewith enough material to be used over the entire second year.Metasachieves this goal by essentially doubling the amount of material in each of the six main chapters of Punto y aparte (originally designed as a fourth-semester book), and then by dividing each of these expanded chapters (now calledUnidadesinMetas) into two self-contained sections (Capitulo AandCapitulo B) to make the amount of material more manageable. Thus,Metasoffers the same 12-unit structure found in most intermediate Spanish textbooks (6 units x 2 chapters each = 12 manageable chapters).In terms of grammar,Metasfocuses on key grammatical structures (los puntos clave) critical to the seven communicative functions or goals (las siete metas comunicativas) that are central to intermediate-level study. The seven communicative functions are: Description (Descripcion) Comparison (Comparacion) Reactions and recommendations (Reacciones y recomendaciones) Narrating in the past (Narracion en el pasado) Talking about preferences (Hablar de los gustos) Hypothesizing (Hacer hipotesis) Talking about the future (Hablar del futuro)By organizing the text around key grammatical structures,Metasretains the framework ofPunto y aparte,resulting in a logical and manageable progression. Additionally, the continual reinforcement and recycling of all seven communicative functions offer students many opportunities to communicate, produce, and create with the language, rather than to simply review the scope and sequence of Spanish grammar of their first-year course.
