  • About

    Conversemos! Let's Talk is a 30-part video series featuring Carlos and Janet, instructors who play the roles of teachers and students in this Spanish-language telecourse. Through the entertaining use of skits, well-known fairy tales, and a continuing melodrama, students watch and listen to language in natural settings, guessing at meaning and formulating rules about language. All activities in the programs are based on practical situations, and the grammar segments stem from these natural communicative activities. There is an emphasis on speaking and listening through the use of everyday vocabulary and communicative skills. Reading and writing skills will be developed from involvement with the spoken language.
