AiClaro que sAs! is a proven, integrated skills program with a strong emphasis on developing oral proficiency and cultural competence. The text's combination of relevant themes, lively practice, and engaging technology tools allows students to start communicating early and with confidence. The authors' philosophy and approach cultivate active learners. Six solid principles of learning form the foundation of the text: students learn by doing; language is culture and culture is reflected in language; skill integration promotes language development; self-expression facilitates greater language proficiency; systematic recycling enables students to move from learning to acquisition; and engaging material enhances learning. Up-to-date cultural information appears throughout the text in the AiLo sabiAin? culture notes and in the chapter-opening Datos interesantes feature, introducing facts relevant to each chapter's content. The AiClaro que sAs! video features footage from five Spanish-speaking countries. A mix of interviews and documentary-based segments allow students to see how geography and ethnicity influences the everyday lives of Hispanics. At the same time, students increase their cultural awareness through ongoing contrast and comparison of social practices, products, and other topics. To support independent and classroom viewing, pre- and post-viewing exercises appear after each even-numbered chapter in the text.Program Components Activities Manual: Workbook/Lab Manual The Workbook provides a variety of practice to help you reinforce ...
