In Destinos, students learn Spanish in the diversified cultural context in which it is spoken throughout the world. Destinos uses the natural conversations and intriguing situations of a continuing story as the vehicle for language learning. The course is designed to help develop proficiency in all the communication skills—listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
While all characters speak only in Spanish, early episodes use both Spanish and English narration. By episode 13, students hear only Spanish. At the end of each episode, Raquel reviews the highlights of the story, using flashbacks and on-screen questions and answers to help students remember what has happened.
