Review quote

"Si tal categoria existiera, sin ninguna duda a GENTE se le podria conceder un premio Pulitzer a la ensenanza de espanol como lengua extranjera: un libro de texto inteligente, dinamico y realmente dirigido a un publico de nivel universitario." -- Manel Lacorte, University of Maryland "GENTE truly immerses students in the language from day one and stretches language competence beyond most traditional texts ...Grammar, vocabulary, and discourse levels of the language are seen as tools to accomplish tasks!" -- Maria Jose de la Fuente, Vanderbilt University "GENTE is far superior in its graphic design, use of illustrations, and wealth of authentic cultural materials. It is superior in up-to-date information, its creative and varied activities, and its appeal to students." -- Virginia M. Garlitz, Plymouth State Collegeshow more
