The Interactive Video on DVD or in MySpanishLab (TM) features the Historia (the story), with all the preliminary sections, follow-up exercises, and self-tests. Each chapter in the DVD contains the same structure: Preparacion, Historia, and Aplicacion. The exercises in the Preparacion section, which include pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar activities, prepare you to watch that chapter's episode of the Historia. Components of the Aplicacion section include cultural videos and readings, listening comprehension activities, in-depth grammar exercises, and computer games and require you to apply what you have learned in each chapter. The DVD contains hundreds of hours of activities and were designed for a variety of language learners (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and experiential). Do those that most help you to communicate better in Spanish.
