Overview

¡A QUE SÍ! is a provocative post-intermediate Spanish conversation book designed to increase students' awareness of Hispanic culture. The text encourages critical thinking while challenging the students' ability to express themselves in Spanish, by providing them with an opportunity for in-depth exploration of relevant contemporary issues. The Fourth Edition presents four main themes around which all the text and supplemental materials revolve: Espacios: Públicos y privados, Encuentros y desencuentros, Patria/Nación: Acercamientos, and De acá para allá. Each thematic unit is supported by creative activities and engaging authentic materials. Both Spain and Latin American countries are represented, as are male and female writers, and a few of the different ethnic groups that comprise Hispanic culture.

What's New

  • Every chapter of the Fourth Edition is supported by iLrnAdvance, a system of web-based activities which address the needs of students in advanced-level language courses. This system features auto-graded exercises and speaking and writing activities, which are adapted from the Cuaderno. It also offers access to grammar tutorials and podcasts, vocabulary and grammar quizzes, and a variety of games. Instructors will have course management capabilities for grading and assigning work as well as access to syllabi. Instructors and students alike will benefit from the "Share it!" feature, which allows for uploading, sharing, and commenting on files.
  • All reading materials as well as the corresponding activities have been thoroughly revised, restructured, and updated. The new readings touch on current topics or offer new perspectives on traditional ones.
  • The Audio Program, designed for the development of listening comprehension skills, now contains twelve highly contextualized listening selections that have been integrated into the textbook.
  • To end every lesson there is a new section called Tu (video) blog which prompts students to report on their real or imagined experiences in the Spanish-speaking world.
  • The Fourth Edition suggests one film at the end of every chapter for optional viewing. This section provides activities to be done before, during, and after viewing the movie. The films expose students to authentic cultural situations while developing their language skills.
