have both expanded the first edition’s Prácticas individuales and
turned them into interactive exercises as Prácticas electrónicas. These
exercises are self-checking, providing learners with immediate
feedback. There is no need to flip to answers in another section of the
book. Exercises designed for in-class work or homework, however, remain
in the textbook where we have made revisions and additions.
interactive exercises focus on individual practice and skill
development with forms and rules. We chose to make them self-correcting
because the answers are fairly predictable. Learners complete them
outside of class and after reading each lesson’s Presentación as part
of the preparation for the next class. Following this order will
strengthen learners’ command of basic forms and rules so that they can
use them more effectively in class work and writing assignments.
Special note to students
For a comprehensive check of what you have
learned so far in the course, try to do each exercise up to the current
lesson’s assignments without looking at the book. If you do need to
consult a dictionary or the book’s Presentación again, feel free to do
so because these Prácticas electrónicas are for your benefit. Reuse
them as often as necessary for review, and see your instructor about
any points that continue giving you trouble.
