We are reviewing textbooks for adoption for the 2018-2019 school year. We currently use Realidades. We don't like Realidades because we can't get through any of the books in one year. We are looking for something that challenges the first year learner (more than just the basics & present tense) without overwhelming them and that throughout the levels focuses on communication and culture.

-Exploremos (National Geographic)

-Descubre

-Asi se dice

-Avancemos

Maura We have used Asi Se Dice for 7 years. We are generally pleased with levels 1-3. Level four has a much different format and is fairly dense We no longer use it for our college prep classes. Also, the online resources are not available for our French colleagues Finally the customer support was mediocre.
