RUMBOS Alternate Edition contains new tools that make this program the most complete resource for intermediate Spanish. An Activity File, bound in to the book, features additional service-learning activities, skill-building games, and additional practice of vocabulary and grammar. New correlations to Heinle iRadio, MP3-ready Spanish-language tutorials, offer students additional help with particularly challenging grammar and pronunciation topics and correlations to the Heinle Voices database expand the text's reading selections. The Alternate Edition features an all-new Video Program to support the cultural material and themes of the chapters. Updated readings appropriate for intermediate students provide additional reading practice with activities that give context to the chapter's lessons. Intermediate students come from a variety of backgrounds with a wide range of skills and abilities, and an equally wide range of goals. The RUMBOS program provides robust support to help students ''fill in the gaps'' that might be left from their first year of Spanish study, including review activities, indices of first year grammar and vocabulary, and student annotations. At the same time, RUMBOS carefully leads students to higher levels of communicative competence through the combination of functional and contextualized vocabulary presentations, targeted practice at more advanced and often problematic grammatical structures, and strategy-building in the speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Finally, RUMBOS begins to prepare students for advanced language study in the major by introducing them to authentic literary readings, listening-based note taking tasks, academic writing tasks, and oral presentations (all guided and supported by strategies). The RUMBOS program also provides plentiful instructor support through its transparent and flexible chapter structure, teacher annotations, and ancillary materials.
