Review quote

I think it is an excellent book for the following reasons:1. It is very well written with excellent and copious examples of each phenomenon discussed. 2. The introduction of "actividades" after each major point allows students to apply what they have learned immediately. Since the activities are not rote, students have to demonstrate mastery of the material. This is a very sound pedagogical strategy. 3. The textual reference to the Cuaderno de ejercicios also allows students to again practice what they have learned. Again, this is a very sound pedagogical technique. 4. The Practica at the end of each chapter once again allows students to demonstrate that they have the learned the priniciples sest forth in each chapter. Students need all the practice they can get. 5. The Temas para profundicar are excellent because they allow students to do more in-depth application of the material in the chapter. 6. The quotations at the beginning of each chapter are an excellent point-of-departure that allows me to start to talk about the content of the chapter.7. The "objetivos" also allows me to help focus student attention on the central topics of the chapter. 8. The bibliography is excellent. 9. The workbook, from my perspective, is an absolutely essential component of this textbook. I think this is the best textbook available for this course. I am very pleased with it, and I wanted you to know this.Best wishes,Frank Nuessel University of Louisville
