Introduction
Welcome to Seasons 1!
S
tudents and teachers will find this book flexible and informative. Reading, writing,
listening and speaking are integrated throughout the book. Speaking is an important
component of this book, with conversations in every block to present and reinforce the
core language. Additionally, we have included listening practice and collaborative work in
every block.

t
This book meets the objectives of the reformed program working with generic and
disciplinary competences. The book has been designed for students to achieve all the unit
competences effectively.

ar
The design of the book includes:
1. New development of class projects
2. Vocabulary presentations: The vocabulary presented in each block is practiced
contextually. We also offer exercises and activities to reinforce the correct spelling of
new words.
3. Listening activities: Students will listen and repeat the vocabulary to practice
pronunciation. M
4. Conversations in pairs: Conversations are presented in every lesson and every block.
These conversations build oral fluency as well as students’ reading ability. In turn, they
provided them with an actual model of how language is naturally spoken.
5. Independent exercises: These provide an opportunity for students to practice writing
skills.
6. Reading strategies: The reading strategies practiced in each block in order to help
students improve their reading skills.
k
These features will help and support the teacher and the student. We know all of your hard
work will pay off.

Have fun with Seasons 1!

project; in this block, you have to tell your classmates about a program you’re
watching by using the present progressive. This presentation must contain
information about the program you’re narrating. You can include the video of
the program so your classmates and teacher can watch it while you’re narrating
important details. The suggested steps for this project are divided into 4 parts that

In 1943, Ignacio “Nacho” ass


embled the first nachos, he
had no idea that 60 years lat
er it would become one
of the most famous and po
pular appetizers around
America. This appetizer too
k the name after its creator:
Ignacio “nachos” (Mexican
people whose name is Ignaci
B

are usually called Nacho). o


At that time, Ignacio was wo
rking at a restaurant, the
Victory Club in Piedras Negra
s, Mexico, across the border.
One day the place was full
of customers and a huge
group of people got in, he ne
eded to prepare something
easy and fast. He went into
the kitchen, picked up
tostadas, grated some cheese
on them and put them
in the oven, which quickly bro
wned the top of food. He
pulled them out after a cou
ple of minutes; all melted,
and put on a slice of jalape
no. The original name that
was given to this was the Na
cho’s Especiales. The name
was later shortened to just
132 “Nachos.”
The origin of the term sandwich for an
item of food might have originated from a
story about John Montagu, the 4th Earl of
Sandwich. In 1762, he asked for some meat
to be served between slices of bread, to
have enough food so as not to interrupt a
gambling game.

Was spaghetti invented in Sicily? Spaghetti
is made from the flour of hard wheat with
water and salt. It has existed since the
days of the Roman Empire. Spaghetti has
become one of the world’s most popular
dishes. It is quite possible that this food,
M as we know it today, was first prepared in
ancient Sicily. But was it really invented
in Sicily?
Popular history says that pasta was
invented in China: the noodles and that
Marco Polo brought the knowledge of this
food to Venice. The spaghetti Polo found in
the far east was made from either rice flour
k
or hard wheat flour (Long noodles made
from both grains). It is generally accepted
that pasta was invented in China and
perhaps spaghetti was too!
