Thorough discussion questions (written and oral) follow each chapter and ensure a beginning student's complete understanding of the story and dialogue. Use each as a filler lesson, or wrap a unit around the interaction and vocabulary. Examples of titles: Un mensaje de texto, Caos en el cine, Una hamburguesa en McDonald's and Una tarde en el Palacio Nacional. Teaching suggestions are included; a complete glossary, listed by chapter, is in the back of the book.
