Summary

Claro que sí! is a proven, integrated skills program with a strong emphasis on developing oral proficiency and cultural competence. The text's combination of relevant themes, lively practice, and engaging technology tools allows students to start communicating early and with confidence. The authors' philosophy and approach cultivate active learners. Six solid principles of learning form the foundation of the text: students learn by doing; language is culture and culture is reflected in language; skill integration promotes language development; self-expression facilitates greater language proficiency; systematic recycling enables students to move from learning to acquisition; and engaging material enhances learning. In addition, a program of learning strategies supports students success, including reading and writing strategies throughout the text as well as annotations in each chapter with additional guidance, study tips, and relevant cultural information.

To demonstrate how some of the six principles work together, functionally-sequenced grammar presentations in English exemplify contemporary, real-world usage followed by a variety of practice activities that encourage self-expression through pair/group exercises and illustration-based tasks. The authors' coverage of authentic culture, from social practices and products to cross-cultural comparisons, promotes discussion and expands students' knowledge of the diverse Spanish-speaking world. An emphasis on real language builds students' confidence: practical, thematic vocabulary enables students to converse early about things that are relevant to their lives. Plus, accessible and contextualized language, such as realistic conversations, provide students with a focus for learning.
