A Mi Manera: Spanish for Proficiency
A mi manera is a Spanish textbook specifically designed to help higher intermediate and advanced level speakers of Spanish improve their professional language proficiency. A mi manera is a focused curriculum to help the students polish their basic Spanish skills, and develop and refine linguistic tasks that are critical to effective communication in the professional arena. Attaining high levels of proficiency is a current challenge for foreign language education in the United States, and one of the “pathways to proficiency” is through the development of effective, proficiency based materials for upper-level students that target advanced and superior level communicative skills. Therefore, A mi manera seeks to prepare students for using Spanish professionally in the Spanish global workplace.
