Summary

For courses in Spanish Conversation.

This text encourages the exploration of "free expression" in Spanish on universal topics of importance and interest. It stimulates class discussion by motivating students to talk about controversial and interesting topics; this exchange of ideas allows students to develop their oral conversation and confidence in an atmosphere of friendly controversy, rather than by having the "right answer" or reviewing grammatical concepts.

Features

  • NEW-Chapters on terrorism, Spanglish, and immigration.
    • Gives students more current themes to promote lively discussion.
  • Universally appealing topics--Shows the great similarity among cultures.
    • Helps students examine and express their own opinions and beliefs, on basic yet important issues of life.
  • A natural, direct approach--Written completely in Spanish without translations.
    • Encourages students to "think" in Spanish and break away from mentally translating to or from English. Permits instructors to maintain a "Spanish only" atmosphere in class.
  • Pro/Con debates.
    • Gives students a springboard to engage in challenging and exciting verbal exchanges, improving their use of the language.
  • Introductory Section "People-on-the-street."
    • Mimics spontaneous and often conflicting opinions that might be heard "on the street."
  • Grammar/structure review--Based on vocabulary and ideas of the main theme presented in the section.
    • Enables students to communicate with each other in pairs or small-groups, while reinforcing grammatical concepts of previous study.
