Viva Latino Espanol 1
Viva Latino Espanol 1 is launched by Ms. Shalu Chopra churning out her passion to promote Spanish as a foreign language amongst Indian students. Viva Latino Español 1 is a much needed resource book which decodes some of the very intricate details of Spanish grammar and its applications through very easy to follow formulae and guidelines. Clearly Shalu has attempted to pro-actively address lot of common learning challenges, particularly for the Indian students, based on her extensive teaching and working with diverse groups over past decade. It articulates very lucidly and illustratively core concepts of the language, and follows closely all skill building exercises which would prepare the learners for taking up rudimentary levels of tests under the internationally acknowledged CEFR format.

Throughout the book, the conversation between Sanskaar and Estela happens very effectively and thanks to the unique style of graphical representation, the impact of learning’s and the recall value is magnificently high. The book is useful for teachers and learners alike for the didactic sequencing of the SWIRLL method which covers the four basic skills of speaking, writing, reading, and listening through interactive exercises and role-play. But its view of language learning is not limited to just acquisition of skills. 

The method has a solid component of culture which focuses on the diversity of Latin America and the Spanish speaking world in general. Unique to the book is its emphasis on the Latin American lexis. It responds to the contemporary reality of growing trade and economic ties of India with various Latin American countries and the resultant cultural contact. The exercises and cultural notes at the end, the accompanying CD and work book make the manual a complete method.
