¡Trato hecho! Spanish for Real Life is an innovative beginning Spanish program that emphasizes the features of Spanish needed for everyday communication in students' communities or places of work. The text uses a flexible, modular organization that breaks each chapter into five interrelated Temas followed by a cultural magazine. Each Tema corresponds to a language function and comprises a vocabulary module and grammar module. This format gives busy students materials organized into clear, compact and functional sections that they can then use to test their abilities and apply new material before moving on. ¡Trato hecho! not only develops proficiency in and appreciation for the Spanish language, but also fosters students' understanding of Hispanic cultures and their growing importance in the world by providing contexts that emphasize the usefulness of Spanish in daily life in North America, as well as when traveling around the world.
