Plazas : Lugar de encuentros - With 2 CDs - 2nd edition

Plazas : Lugar de encuentros - With 2 CDs (ISBN10: 0838408524; ISBN13: 9780838408520)
ISBN13: 978-0838408520
ISBN10: 0838408524

Summary: Each chapter of this successful beginning Spanish program weaves together solid language instruction and opportunities for real-life communication with the rich and colorful threads of Spanish-speaking cultures.

Benefits:
  • Every chapter focuses on one to two different Hispanic countries or regions, and all the material in that chapter--from readings, audio, video, art, to grammar explan
    ations and activities--refers to that region and imparts cultural content.
  • NEW! The Instructor's Annotated Edition has a new wraparound design with an increased number of helpful annotations, including new ones on teaching composition as well as the 5 C's. A PowerPoint CD-ROM with images and activities that support both vocabulary and grammar presentations is also included.
  • NEW! Margin notes reinforce the cultural content embedded in activities throughout each chapter, offering students a wealth of knowledge about the Spanish-speaking world.
  • NEW! Grammar explanations have been revised for clarity, accuracy, and comprehensibility.
  • NEW! An all-new video program now contains two videos. BIENVENIDOS A..., which corresponds to chapter openers, takes students to the chapter's country or region of focus and provides background information on geography and climate, history and culture, and people and places all over the Spanish-speaking world. A VER, corresponding to the chapter-ending SÍNTESIS follows the lives of five students as they come together in a Spanish-speaking culture, modeling the vocabulary, structures and communicative goals of the respective chapter.
  • NEW! The popular PLAZAS Magazine that appears after every three chapters now contains articles that are at a level that are more appropriate to beginning students. Each PLAZAS Magazine provides authentic articles that are thematically tied to the corresponding chapters.
  • NEW! Activities are better sequenced to help students build toward proficiency. Activity direction lines in the new edition are more straightforward and easy-to-follow.
  • NEW! Question sets in the ENCUENTRO CULTURAL have been revised to move students beyond simple comprehension to personal reaction and critical thinking.
  • NEW! The EN CONTEXTO dialogs have been rewritten to sound more like authentic, everyday speech without sacrificing reinforcement of the vocabulary and structures targeted in each chapter.
  • Culture is embedded in every chapter of PLAZAS, giving students an appreciation of different cultural practices and perspectives.
  • Updated ENCUENTRO CULTURAL boxes in each chapter offer timely information on the cultural practices, products, and perceptions of the region profiled.
  • Expanded NOS ENTENDEMOS? notes provide sociolinguistic information relevant to either the vocabulary/grammar topic, or to the country of the chapter.
  • The two-tiered activity sets provide opportunities for students to focus on accuracy and creative use of the language alike.
  • End-of-chapter SÍNTESIS sections synthesize chapter material with greater attention to the development of all four skills, including reading and writing strategies.
  • A variety of supplements allow instructors to customize their own language program. Each supplement shares a parallel structure with the text, making it easier to plan lessons.
  • The Grammar ACTIVITY FILE offers instructors dozens of additional activities ranging from skill practice to open-ended scenarios and information gap activities.
  • NEW! Based on user feedback, an all-new design and layout makes the new edition even easier for instructors to teach from and easier for students to learn from.
