This is a core student textbook, which along with two separate workbooks, serves as a bridge between first and second-year Spanish. It is not necessary to have used the original text "Destinos" to use "Nuevos Destinos" and the text retells the original story, while also relating a new mystery involving the Castillo family. The text contains a preliminary chapter and is followed by 15 chapters which correlate to the 15 video episodes available. An authentic literary reading can be found in every other chapter, these are tied in to the cultural focus of the chapter. At the end of each chapter a final writing task brings the themes and information gathered throughout the chapter together.
