We are very excited to announce our second program for August of 2018:
Gran Hotel from Atresmedia Series and Bambú! As with our first product for high school, Silvana sin lana, we will offer a "just-right-fit" for the college or advanced high school academic year: 42 episodes.
Our version of Gran Hotel is not only edited for appropriate length and content, but also for interest. We focus on storylines that your college students will love whether watching in class, in their dorm, apartments, language lab, library, or purely online. Our methodology includes Spanish only subtitles with help functions.
Each episode contains approximately 20 minutes of highly engaging video, made comprehensible for this level of students. Like Silvana sin lana, we offer our EduNovela.com media player that enables each student to work at her or his own speed. We highly recommend that non-native students listen at 75%. This does not affect the quality of the audio or the video, but it does enhance their comprehension. If you have heritage learners, they can listen at normal speed.
While watching Gran Hotel, your students will have access to our introductory readings, front-loading important cues. Each reading also comes with a multi-speed narration in multiple Spanish accents, males and females, for quicker fluency. We provide small chunks of video with vocabulary and scene quizzes for quick comprehension check-ins.
When completed, each episode has a 5-point quiz that is sent to the instructor's gradebook along with "time on task." The user's individual growth will be tracked for them. Schools set their own schedules, releasing the video according to your unique syllabus.
Do we sell Gran hotel for Upper levels of High School Spanish? Yes, we sell Gran Hotel for Spanish 4/5/ and A.P. Please contact us for details and high school pricing via our Contact form.

How do EduNovela.com's programs differ from the Netflix or Hulu versions? Most of our TV shows are quite lengthy in the original version, some as long as 145 hours. We offer highly edited, classroom-friendly versions of your favorite programs, and of course, we make them comprehensible for Spanish students at various levels. We have a variable speed control player, perfect for non-natives. We highly recommend 0.75% (when there is not a great song playing).
We do not offer English subtitles, but you will find subtitles in Spanish. Our team of real professors and teachers create many other features to make our stories comprehensible for your students: narrated readings, scene quizzes, vocabulary, grammar, and more. We will also have more than 200 free exercises in our shared space called "El salón de profesores." And what about AP? Yes! We have exam-specific activities for each lesson.
Coming for August of 2018.
