Teaching method

Soleado uses an eclectic method, all under the umbrella of the communicative approach. The students have to constantly interact with one another in practical and simple conversations, giving them the opportunity to communicate in Spanish immediately and effectively.

There is a natural presentation of new structures through dialogues, visuals and examples, and a constant relationship between newly introduced linguistic structures and the functional objective of the unit.

Paso a paso is an excerpt taken from the free Teacher's Manual [PDF], offering the instructor a step-by-step plan for a typical class using Soleado.

The Audio

Professionally recorded, the audio not only brings the characters to life, but also helps with pronunciation, intonation and comprehension. Different accents and expressions from the Hispanic world are used, and popular Hispanic songs from Spain and Latinamerica provide an entertaining way to end the class. The audio from Módulos 1 and 2 is also available on a password-protected channel on VIMEO.

Hispanic world and culture

The workbooks present a series of illustrated characters who explore the Hispanic world and culture. The stories are engaging and humorous. Students follow the characters through various situations learning new structures and vocabulary as they progress through the units.

There are supplementary resources such as videos and web pages with cultural information on such topics as bebidas hispánicas and chiles, to compliment the units of the course.

Each unit begins with two pages of illustrated dialogue where the new structures and vocabulary are presented naturally, and in context. The students look at the pictures and try to follow along with the CD (or online at Vimeo), not necessarily understanding every word, just the general storyline.

The dialogue is followed by a fill-in-the-blanks exercise before continuing onto the presentaciones of the new structures.

The new structures and vocabulary presented in each dialogue are introduced formally in the "presentaciones" through drawings and examples. They are followed by prácticas, a variety of practice exercises.

The 'prácticas' are a controlled way of practicing the new structures or vocabulary. In class they are usually done in pairs, or they can be assigned as homework. An answer key at the end of each chapter allows the students to check on their work. There are extra 'prácticas' online if the student wants more practice. Each 'práctica' is usually followed by an 'interacción', a less controlled activity.



With the 'interacciones' students have the opportunity to converse through a variety of classroom activities such as interviewing classmates, role-playing, and creating dialogues.
