Breaking the Spanish Barrier is a core text, workbook and handy ­reference all-in-one. It can stand alone, or complement the multitude of Spanish language resources currently available.

We believe the fastest path to fluency is built upon a rock-solid ­understanding of grammar.
Breaking the Spanish Barrier provides the essential roadmap for this journey.

In the following twelve lessons, you will find country maps, ­vocabulary, a review of key grammatical concepts, explanations of new material, many practice exercises, an exciting dialogue series, as well as review tests. A companion set provides further opportunity to sharpen your Spanish skills — by hearing, modeling, and conversing with native speakers. Sentences throughout the book highlight current people, places and events from the Spanish-speaking world. You will find the tone of these pages informal and conversational — a one-on-one ­session between teacher and student.

We look forward to accompanying you
as you Break the Spanish Barrier.
