Más arriba: Spanish Language Exercises

Más arriba (©2013 by Gary Aitken) is an interactive workbook of introductory Spanish language exercises, based on the pictorial contextualization of fundamental vocabulary and language points. The exercise material includes full-colour drawings, sound clips, instant feed-back, vocabulary help and a voice recorder (powered by Vocaroo). Más arriba can be used with any introductory approach.
