Materials Description for Destinos

Destinos teaches speaking, listening, and comprehension skills in Spanish. This telenovela, or Spanish soap opera, immerses you in everyday situations with native speakers and introduces the cultures, accents, and dialects of Mexico, Spain, Argentina, and Puerto Rico.

Destinos has a total of 52 half-hour video programs, which can be purchased in three different versions to meet the needs of different audiences. The content for the videos is the same for every version. The videos are supported by print materials and audiocassettes. Destinos videos and print/audio materials are divided into two parts, and for all versions you may buy just the first or second part.

If you are with an educational institution, library, or other organization we recommend version A. This version is especially convenient for media centers, classrooms or libraries because there are only two half-hour programs on each videocassette, for a total of 26 videocassettes. Also, you have the right to duplicate one additional set of the Destinos videos.

If you are a student or home learner, we recommend version B or C. With Version B you receive all 52 half-hour programs on 14 videocassettes, because there are four programs on each videocassette. With Version C you also receive all 52 half-hour programs on 14 videocassette, plus the textbook, workbook/study guide, and audiocassettes. Versions B and C do not include the right to duplicate an additional set of the videos.
