In Pasos 2, the second part of the two-stage Pasos course, the language skills learnt in Pasos 1 are consolidated and extended enabling learners to develop an ability to communicate confidently at a higher level. They will also gain an insight into the history, customs and everyday life of modern Spain and Latin America. The course encourages active and realistic use of the language over a wide range of themes and situations throughout its fourteen topic-based lessons. There is a wealth of up-to-date authentic reading and listening materials as well as speaking and writing tasks based on everyday situations in Spain and Latin America. The tasks draw on learners' opinions, experience and knowledge of the world and are set against a background of more controlled presentation and practice of essential grammatical items. Each lesson is subdivided into stand-alone sections which provide an integrated task-based approach. As with Pasos 1, there are regular opportunities for revision, and vocabulary and grammar summaries are provided both at the end of each lesson and in separate reference sections. Prepárate features prepare learners for new language and topics and lessons end with an Autoevaluación self-assessment feature.
