This exciting new film-based introductory Spanish program seamlessly integrates the feature-length film Sol y viento into the instructional and learning experience. Created specifically for beginning language learners, the movie was filmed on location in Chile, Mexico, and the United States. It tells the story of a Chilean family and their winery, and of a young U.S. Latino businessman who finds himself intricately involved with the family as his company tries to buy their land. Mystery, romance, and the unexplainable forces of nature all play a part of this spellbinding story as it unfolds. The Sol y viento textbook and accompanying ancillaries have been developed in conjunction with this exciting movie. Language is presented within the context of the movie, and linguistic skills are developed through engaging, meaningful activities that encourage students to develop real-world skills and abilities. Instructors and students are likely to find Sol y viento to be a breath of fresh air: a highly motivating introductory Spanish program designed especially for today's learners!
