Conexiones: Communication Y Cultura is an exciting intermediate Spanish course that features high interest topics, an effective and uniquely sequenced review of selected grammatical points, and a thorough integration of language and culture. Chapter topics reflect issues of interest and of concern to today's college and university students, providing students with many opportunities to make connections with what they're discussing in other courses. The second edition consists of a Leccion preliminar, followed by twelve Lecciones. Each of the twelve Lecciones is divided into three parts: Primera Parte, Segunda Parte, and Asi Lo Expresamos. Each Leccion of the student text synthesizes the development of language skills and cultural awareness through the active use of art, music, and literature from the Spanish-speaking world. Activities are designed to foster involvement, participation, and exchange in discussion and compositions. Active, personalized, and real communication about actual issues and experiences is at the heart of Conexiones.
