This Spanish course is structured as a series of 12 units, each of which is centred around one particular leisure and tourist attraction and focuses on typical situations that a member of staff working there may have to deal with. Two complementary cassettes are also available. Within each unit, particular emphasis is placed on listening and speaking. At regular points throughout the book, cultural information is given in order to reduce the possibility of embarrassing misunderstandings. Four assignments are included, in addition to exercises, which aim to exploit and put into practice the skills acquired. The book also includes an extensive Spanish-English glossary and a key to all the exercises. The accompanying cassettes include all the dialogues, listening exercises and vocabulary lists for pronunciation practice. The course is aimed at students taking City & Guilds, BTEC ND/HND, RSA and GNVQ Tourism courses.
