Spanish for Teachers by Ana C. Jarvis, Raquel Lebredo

As a component of The Basic Spanish Series , Bascic Spanish for Teachers is a career manual designed to serve those in the teaching professions who seek basic conversational skills in Spanish. Written for use in two-semester or three-quarter courses, it presents everyday situations that teachers may encounter at work settings such as public and private elementary, middle, and high schools when dealing with Spanish speaking students and parents/guardians in the United States. Bascic Spanish for Teachers introduces practical vocabulary, everyday on-the-job situations, and culture notes (Notas culturales) written from a cross-cultural perspective. It provides students with opportunities to apply, in a wide variety of practical contexts, the grammatical structures presented in the corresponding lessons of the Basic Spanish core text.
