Overview

¡A que sí! Enhanced Fourth Edition is designed to encourage post-intermediate Spanish students to think critically and to express themselves in Spanish. The Enhanced Fourth edition provides students with an opportunity for in-depth exploration of relevant contemporary issues and revolves around four main themes: Espacios: Publicos y privados, Encuentros y desencuentros, Patria Nacion: Acercamientos, and De aca para alla. Each thematic unit is now supported by an authentic short film with accompanying engaging activities to inspire creative thinking and conversation. The short films and related activities can be accessed through iLrnAdvance, the online digital solution that accompanies the ¡A que sí! program.

  • ¡A QUE SÍ! is organized around four high-interest themes: Espacios: Públicos y privados, Encuentros y desencuentros, Patria/Nación: Acercamientos, and De acá para allá. These topics were selected for their general contemporary relevance and for their ability to increase students' awareness and understanding of Hispanic culture and global issues.
  • New incorporation of four authentic short films to better develop the thematic units: Unidad I: “Perú, Nebraska”; Unidad II: “Un juego absurdo”; Unidad III: “Minería contaminante”; and Unidad IV: “Victoria para Chino.”
  • iLrnAdvance, the online digital solution for ¡A QUE SÍ!, is configured to address the needs of students at the advanced level. The platform features audio and video (and now short films), and the portal includes access to student resources and offers ShareIt! media sharing and commenting capabilities.
  • New incorporation of four authentic short films to better develop the thematic units: Unidad I: “Perú, Nebraska”; Unidad II: “Un juego absurdo”; Unidad III: “Minería contaminante”; and Unidad IV: “Victoria para Chino.”
  • Two vocabulary sections introduce each lesson. “Palabra por palabra” highlights frequently used Spanish words that appear in the reading. “Mejor dicho” examines false cognates and other problem words. Sequentially placed, these sections facilitate vocabulary acquisition and practice before students begin the actual reading.
  • Found before every reading selection, the “¡Alto!” section of ¡A QUE SÍ! features techniques for improving reading skills, taps previous background knowledge, and at times examines specific grammatical items.
  • “Estrategias comunicativas” contains colloquial words and phrases. The goal of this section is to help students express themselves in everyday situations, such as asking for opinions and directions, agreeing and disagreeing, and expressing emotions such as surprise and gratitude.
  • Each reading is accompanied by pre-reading and post-reading activities, which help students think and speak critically about the issues presented.
  • The readings in ¡A QUE SÍ! have been chosen from a variety of sources: literature, newspapers, magazines, comic strips, advertisements, songs, blogs, and films. Spain and many Latin American countries are represented, as are male and female writers and a few of the different ethnic groups that comprise Hispanic culture. The strong human interest component of the reading helps foster lively exchanges and a stimulating classroom environment.
  • The Cuaderno contains grammatical explanations as well as exercises for vocabulary, grammar, and writing review.
  • A detachable bookmark provides frequently used conversational expressions and function words needed for discussion.
