Summary

Punto y aparte moves your students beyond learning about the Spanish language to actually using their Spanish in natural, meaningful contexts. With Punto y aparte students develop more confidence for communication and begin to think critically about language and culture. This is achieved by focusing on seven communicative functions and the grammar structures that support them. These communicative functions appear at the beginning and are recycled throughout, providing opportunities for review in different contexts. Since this is not the typical linear march through grammar one structure at a time, students are able to begin using language in a way that is creative and allows for natural language production. Ultimately, students will move easily from simple sentence-level discourse to paragraph-length discourse. The title itself makes reference to this progression, since it is the Spanish expression for the beginning of a new paragraph: punto y aparte.
