The EntreCulturas program is all about teaching novice through intermediate learners the Spanish language through the lens of interculturality, so they can discover appropriate ways to interact and connect with others whose perspectives may be different from their own.

EntreCulturas 1A & 1B

In Levels 1A and 1B, students build the language skills, personal attitudes, and cultural insights necessary to experience life "entre culturas," using Spanish to connect with people. Students learn grammar and vocabulary both inductively and deductively.

In Level 1 of this four-book series, students build the language skills, personal attitudes, and cultural insights necessary to experience life "entre culturas," using Spanish to connect with people. Students learn grammar and vocabulary both inductively and deductively.

This is my 49th year in education. EntreCulturas provides multiple spontaneous conversation opportunities for students, and teachers are able to look at something and immediately go from there with it - and perhaps even do the types of things they used to have to do on their own. EntreCulturas is the only series that I know of that provides that kind of material for kids to begin to speak with each other naturally. It's set up the way that I've always been striving to teach.

Deborah Doyle

Spanish Teacher, MFLA, Maryland

Wayside Publishing not only provides high-quality teaching materials, but they are a great company to work with. Their generosity and support in sponsoring the non-profit Manie Musicale Collaborative have been incredible. I highly recommend their personable and helpful staff.

French teacher, Falmouth, Maine

"I was really impressed to see in the "C'est drôle, l'école" chapter the "chosir sa voi de formation" chart, the sample report card, as well as the examples of how American grades correspond roughly to French grades. I have never seen such good realia anywhere else."

Ruth Ann G.

French 4-AP Teacher, Tennessee

"Neue Blickwinkel touches on themes of interest to my teens. The vocabulary is divided into function and color is used throughout. (I am a big advocate of color in learning, as it helps the whole brain become engaged.) It's not too large a text but functions in themes that I use (and that the AP reading/listening themes often use as well). There are ample opportunities for students to research more deeply a theme that interests them and because the reading texts are interesting, to improve their reading comprehension as well as their vocabulary."

Janey Haynes

"[APprenons] has a wealth of material and ways of working with it that would appeal to high school students. Vocabulary is much more actively taught in APprenons than in the program I am using currently...and it needs to be! I love the way the grammar is presented, both the structures taught, and the way they are integrated with the theme and the task at hand. The documents included in the 2nd education would be very motivating for high school students. One example is in the technology chapter where students complete a grid charting their own use of technology in preparation for a reading. I like the use of graphs and tables throughout."
