Puntos de partida: An Invitation to Spanish (Student Edition) ISBN 9780073534428 by Marty Knorre, Thalia Dorwick, Ana Maria Perez Girones, William R. Glass, and Hildebrando Villarreal is an introductory-level textbook for students enrolled in Spanish language electives. It focuses on actually communicating in Spanish instead of just making students memorize words and grammar rules. Already on its 8th edition, this textbook has been revised by authors Marty Knorre, Thalia Dorwick, Ana Maria Perez Girones, William R. Glass, and Hildebrando Villarreal according to the responses of actual students and instructors who have used the previous editions. It now starts off with an introduction about the United States and how widely used Spanish is in the country, and then continues onto discuss the language from a vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, and cultural perspective. Puntos de partida: An Invitation to Spanish (Student Edition) covers all the fundamentals – genders, articles in singular and plural forms, places and things expressing actions through the tenses. It keeps students engaged with interesting photos and anecdotes. There are supplements offered for both the instructor and the learner. This edition has also been updated with new exercises designed to assess progress. Those who want to study on their own time can use the online learning center, which offers more activities and a wealth of resources. Each chapter ends with a grammar checklist to facilitate review and ensure that students are ready to move on to the next chapter. Lead author Marty Knorre served as an associate professor of Romance Languages at the University of Cincinnati, specializing in both undergraduate and graduate courses in linguistics.
