Supported by exciting, authentic video, Fusion is a one-semester intermediate Spanish program that connects the study of intermediate Spanish to students' real lives, connecting language to culture, and making the transition from first-year Spanish to a true intermediate program. Intermediate programs typically repeat elementary Spanish grammar sequencing from the present tense forward. Consequently, students progress to advanced levels without a thorough understanding of the indicative and subjunctive moods and without a concrete grounding in the forms and usage of certain tenses, especially the preterit and the imperfect. Fusion reviews the preterit and the imperfect in first chapter, which equips students to shift back and forth naturally between the present and the past as they speak, read, and write throughout the course. It goes on to review the present subjunctive early in the course and encourages students to use the subjunctive mood alongside the indicative throughout the program, refining their understanding of both the concept and usage of mood, essential to Spanish.
