The Used copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.
Revised and streamlined, the SAM consists of workbook and lab manual activities with skill-based approach to vocabulary and grammar practice (single-response, semi-controlled, and open-ended). New activities written expressly to complement the short films (cortometrajes) are also included. The workbook portion includes an outstanding backing in traditional grammar and vocabulary, along with a writing component centered on useful tasks and expressions. The lab manual portion has a strong emphasis on pronunciation, accents, and intonation. For the online environment, up to 80 percent single-response activities allow for independent practice of vocabulary and structures.
