Today’s students of agriculture with a basic grasp of the Spanish language and understanding of Hispanic culture will be better able to choose a career that is both satisfying and financially rewarding.

Putting Spanish to Work: Spanish for Agriculture is designed for the introductory “Spanish for Agriculture” classroom. It features content and vocabulary useful in agricultural settings and includes functional, communicative activities for students to apply their new language and culture skills. Though it is designed for beginning–level Spanish students, it has also proven suitable for those with some prior instruction in the language and could easily be adapted for community classes of students already working in their vocations or for training within companies or other organizations.

The worktext fits handily in a 1” binder. Its loose-leaf format allows students to remove pages as needed for submitting written activities and to later reinsert them in their binder.
