DESTINOS
An Introduction to Spanish
by Bill VanPatten, Martha Alford Marks, Richard V. Teschner

Destinos is an instructional television series consisting of 52 half-hour segments, published by McGraw Hill, Inc. We have a license to use the program on the IPFW campus. I include segments of the program in my second-year courses for many reasons, for example so that students: are exposed to at least 20 minutes per week of good Spanish in the context of a story; experience culture from the Hispanic world including everyday aspects of the language, the people, and their customs, as well as aspects of art, dance, literature, architecture, history, and geography; and “visit” four Hispanic countries, Mexico, Spain, Argentina, and Puerto Rico. Below are some questions for you to be thinking about as you watch the first 17 episodes.

Enjoy!
