Reviewer’s Summary I recommend this textbook. Much of this text is appropriate for an upper level community college course focusing on communication, or all of it would be appropriate for an upper level community college course specifically on business communication. The layout of the text is fantastic! Each chapter opens with quotes that relate to the content. This is followed with introductory exercises and an introduction to the content.

Textbook: Spanish I
Author(s): Wikiveristy

Reviewer’s Summary I recommend this book as a required primary textbook for all majors at the freshman and sophomore levels, as well as trade and medical schools, and dually enrolled high school students. The concept of an e-book to teach Spanish I and other levels is very much needed by college students. This book meets that concept. I would warn those with no multimedia experience to use the ‘helpdesk’ abundantly until they find themselves comfortable with the e-learning processes.
