What's the Puntos story? The truth is, Puntos de partida sparked a revolution. When it first published, it changed the way instructors taught Spanish and the way students learned Spanish. Puntos introduced the idea of organizing chapters around themes and connecting vocabulary to these themes, and also introduced the idea of systematically developing all four language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. It was a pioneer in its activity types, too -- Puntos moved the focus of classroom work from drills to communicative activities. It was truly a revolutionary book that spread like wildfire.And while Puntos has been on the market for quite some time now, that does NOT make it an outdated and old-fashioned book. Not at all. In fact, just this past year, Puntos won the prestigious McGuffey Award which is awarded to a select group of textbooks that have been incredibly successful over a long period of time. One of the judges for the McGuffey Award said it best: It's a "truly excellent textbook package that has withstood the test of time while moving forward". Puntos has the best of both worlds: It is fresh and contemporary, but it is built on a long-standing tradition of excellence. There are many good reasons why it's the best-selling introductory Spanish textbook!Puntos is: the Market Leader: Best-selling text for Intro Spanish! a pioneer in the development four-skills practice and the integration of culture designed with a purpose: 2-column grammar presentations with colored font, special activity designs, and "Highlighting' for vocabulary full of classroom- and teacher-tested activities really work available with innovative media supplements and outstanding instructor support flexible: adaptable to different teaching and learning styles
