Spanish that Works for You
New format makes course more
The original Spanish that Works course is an 8 week
workshop, available to libraries, schools,
and courts as a reproducible kit. Material is streamlined and
specialty words are integrated with grammar structures.
The new version, entitled
"Spanish that Works for You," is sold as individual kits. The new course uses
generic words like "book" and "entrance" to explain grammar concepts.
This basic course is then supplemented with a
"specialty module" booklet. This format allows the course to be adapted to many
More detailed explanations, answer key, and audio support also make the new course more suitable for
Videotapes of a Spanish that Works
class taught for community television can be used to present the information for the new
version, or to supplement one of the group workshops.

Bilingual! Spanish that Works Lessons on Video
This four tape series, done live-to-tape for
community television, covers each of the sixteen lessons in the basic course. Spanish that
Works author and teacher Elizabeth Almann personally explains the structures presented in
each lesson just as if you were sitting in class.
Once you understand the basics, you can
apply those concepts to your specialty module, and learn additional vocabulary specific to
library, school & early childhood, court, or community (food & social words).
The Spanish that Works for You course
for individuals comes with two audio CD's, which include detailed information about how to
use the course pronunciation guide, flashcards, dialogues, and sentence builders, in
addition to the basic vocabulary and expressions used in the course. These CD's are
not available at the online store, but may be purchased separately through special request.
There is also a special Library audio
CD (included in both versions of the complete library
course). The Library CD may be purchased separately for $10 and then reproduced
for $5 per copy, on the honor system. The Library can be used along with the reproducible
course kit, or with the shorter library intro workshop.
Service" audio CD may be also purchased separately at the online
store. This CD contains a more detailed explanation of Spanish
pronunciation than the library CD.
