The teacher's attention is focused on selected elements of Spanish culture which may be taught integrally with instructional materials found in the first-year Spanish texts "Entender y Hablar", "La Familia Fernandez", and "A-LM Spanish, Level One". Items are cross-referenced for 42 cultural concepts ranging from nicknames to streets, roads, and highways. The role of culture in foreign language teaching is elaborated with commentary on cultural phenomena and teaching methodology. Extensive linguistic examples and illustrations accompany discussion of each of the particular cultural concepts. The booklet serves as a supplement to traditional Spanish texts at all levels. (RL)
