Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • Uniquely dynamic "power pacing" and prioritizing allows more practice/time for the points students must master in order to achieve the intermediate level of proficiency and to prepare the way for the advanced level.
  • A class-tested placement exam helps identify the large number of students who fall into the high-beginner category.
  • The vocabulary is presented in context of natural conversation and in manageable thematic chunks so students have tools to speak about their interests with one another.
  • iLrn: Heinle Learning Center: provides students and instructors with an all-in-one online solution for the high-beginner or intensive first-year Spanish course. With iLrn, everything students need to master the skills and concepts of the course is built right in to this dynamic audio- and video-enhanced learning environment, including: an audio-enhanced eBook with integrated activities; companion videos; an interactive VoiceBoard; an online workbook; an online lab manual with audio; interactive enrichment activities; diagnostic activities that generate a personalized study plan for each student; and access to online live tutoring with a Spanish teaching expert.

What's New

  • Vocabulario temático: The backbone of this vocabulary presentation consists of model questions and answers on everyday topics. Novice-level learners can easily memorize and adapt these key phrases for immediate communication even as they internalize the structural patterns presented. In this edition, the clear new layout of this section helps focus learner's attention on key "chunks" of information and facilitates classroom presentation of the material. The models have also been slightly shortened to allow for more rapid coverage.
  • Gramática: Since key grammatical structures are embedded in the Vocabulario temático sections, students work with the grammar before practicing it more formally in the Gramática sections. In this edition, each grammar explanation is preceded by a model conversational exchange (also recorded) which directs students' attention to the grammar point of study and provides an opportunity for inductive learning. Explanations have been streamlined, with an emphasis on the most common uses; exceptions and more advanced points are provided in annotations.
  • Ponerlo a prueba: A carefully-designed sequence of practice activities follows each vocabulary and grammar presentation. In this edition, particular emphasis is given to providing more opportunities for self-expression and open-ended response in both paired and small-group contexts. Short new readings in every chapter provide informative and entertaining content while serving as a springboard for conversation.
  • A primera vista: This short thematic introduction to the chapter topic now alternates between two formats. In odd-numbered chapters, we have retained the well-received focus on paintings and art. New to this edition, the even-numbered chapters now feature songs in a variety of musical styles, along with key information on musical terminology, musicians and instruments.
  • Puente cultural: A hallmark feature of the Puentes program, the Puente cultural highlights the cultural practices and products of the Hispanic world through the eyes of college-aged students native to Spain, Africa, Central and South America. In the text, the all-new survey focuses on these students' responses to a more general question, while their answers to a more personal question on the same topic are available as video clips on the Puentes Premium Website.
  • Panorama cultural: Each Panorama cultural spotlights a particular Spanish-speaking country and presents attention-grabbing photographs along with fascinating facts about history, geography, customs and famous persons. This presentation is accompanied by an all-new travelogue-style video program.
  • Annotations: Recognizing that many teaching assistants and others new to the profession will be using Puentes, numerous hints, suggestions, ideas for implementation and explanation have been added. Novice teachers will profit from these tips, gleaned from the authors' more than thirty years of teaching experience at this level.
  • Gramática suplementaria: This section, formerly found at the end of the Student Activities Manual, is now located at the end of the textbook. Instructors may pick and choose from these sections to supplement the grammatical content of the course as they wish. Explanations and practices have been completely revamped to provide a closer tie-in to the main body of each chapter.
  • New video, available online and on DVD, includes two segments for each of the nine chapters. "En la Hacienda Vista Alegre" is an exciting, reality-based storyline video that follows the adventures of five strangers who come together to live and learn in a Spanish-speaking culture. It highlights the chapter themes and grammatical structures, while showcasing the characters, in a variety of real-life situations or conflicts that need to be resolved. The NEW "Imagénes de…" features a video visit to the country featured in each chapter's "Panorama cultural" section.
