"New Stepping Stones" contains the best of the old course, but has been updated to create a fresh, modern course. Topics lead children to explore the language and then to practise it, and activities are varied, unit-by-unit, with favourites running through the whole course. The series has been extended to four levels. In response to feedback from teachers using the original course, each unit has a clear path through it, with clearer rubrics and use of space, illustration and text. Teacher's books are available in both Spanish (levels one to four) and French (levels one to two).
