Connect® for Introductory Spanish
Helping students stay engaged
Practice Spanish: Study Abroad is an immersive 3-D language game designed exclusively by McGraw-Hill to accompany any Introductory Spanish title. Students "travel" virtually to Colombia, where they problem solve, communicate, and navigate through a variety of cultural scenarios and adventures as they "study abroad" in a fictional Colombian town. Students earn points and rewards for successfully accomplishing these tasks via their smartphones, tablets, and computers and instructors will have the ability to assign specific tasks, monitor student achievement, and incorporate the game into the classroom experience.
Helping students master vocabulary and grammar
LearnSmart® is an adaptive learning program that provides each student a fully customized vocabulary and grammar practice experience, and has been proven to help students study more efficiently and improve grades. By identifying the student's strengths and weaknesses and responding with personalized instruction that guides the learner to understand and retain foundational vocabulary and grammar, LearnSmart helps the student learn and master critical course content.
Helping students communicate
Recordable Video Chat (powered by GoReact) is a synchronous communication tool within Connect. Up to six students can meet online together in a “video chat” to practice speaking in the target language and submit the recording for a grade. Instructors are able to evaluate those recordings with the help of embedded comments and easy-to-customize, time-stamped markers. Whether teaching face-to-face, hybrid, or online, instructors now have a simple way to incorporate meaningful speaking practice into their language course.
