¡Anda! Curso elemental, 1/e is the first Elementary Spanish book conceptualized from the outset to meet the needs of today's language teachers and learners. In the last few years, classroom contact hours have been reduced drastically, class sizes have increased and students' lives have become busier than ever. Instructors don't have time to cover everything that they feel is needed and more is being asked of them with fewer resources. At the same time, language teachers want to spend as much time exposing students to Hispanic culture and practicing communication as they do with grammar. But, there simply isn't enough time or resources. The result: Many instructors end up galloping through their elementary Spanish text, omitting interesting cultural lessons, to try to give students the broadest grammatical exposure possible. Now they have a new option: ¡Anda!
¡Anda! has been designed around three key areas to promote student success:
· Realistic goals with a realistic approach--the first step in achieving success!
· Focus on student motivation--students will stride with enthusiasm if they are engaged with the content and are not afraid!
· Tools to promote success--student and instructor support for learning and teaching creates successful instructors and confident students!
The entire ¡Anda! program was designed to increase the opportunity for student and instructor success by giving them more of what they need...and less of what they don't! ¡Anda! is ready to go!

"Terry and Gerry Audesirk" grew up in New Jersey, where they met as undergraduates. After marrying in 1970, they moved to California, where Terry earned her doctorate in marine ecology at the University of Southern California and Gerry earned his doctorate in neurobiology at the California Institute of Technology. As postdoctoral students at the University of Washington's marine laboratories, they worked together on the neural bases of behavior, using a marine mollusk as a model system. Terry and Gerry are now professors of biology at the University of Colorado at Denver, where they have taught introductory biology and neurobiology since 1982. In their research lab, funded by the National Institutes of Health, they investigate the mechanisms by which neurons are harmed by low levels of environmental pollutants. Terry and Gerry share a deep appreciation of nature and of the outdoors. They enjoy hiking in the Rockies, running near their home in the foothills west of Denver, and attempting to garden at 7000 feet in the presence of hungry deer and elk. They are long-time members of many conservation organizations. Their daughter, Heather, has added another focus to their lives. "Bruce E. Byers," a midwesterner transplanted to the hills of western Massachusetts, is a professor in the biology department at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He's been a member of the faculty at UMass (where he also completed his doctoral degree) since 1993. Bruce teaches introductory biology courses for both nonmajors and majors; he also teaches courses in ornithology and animal behavior. A lifelong fascination with birds ultimately led Bruce to scientific exploration of avian biology. His currentresearch focuses on the behavioral ecology of birds, especially on the function and evolution of the vocal signals that birds use to communicate. The pursuit of vocalizations often takes Bruce outdoors, where he can be found before dawn, tape recorder in hand, awaiting the first songs of a new day.
