Comunidades: maacute;s allaacute; del aulais the very first Spanish textbook with a complete Spanish community service learning curriculum. In this increasingly popular method of teaching Spanish, students spend part of their time doing substantial community service learning work within a Spanish-speaking community organization and another part of their time in the classroom. Comunidades gives todayrs"s Spanish students exactly what they want: the challenge of learning from native-speakers of Spanish, directly participating in Latino cultures, developing their pre-professional skills and contributing something positive to society within the security of a clear, safe and tested curriculum that fosters their success.

Ann directs "Spanish & Illinois" (, a program that offers a full range of opportunities for UIUC students to use Spanish in the real world.
