Arriba! Comunicacion y Cultura speaks specifically to the demands of Canadian instructors and students. Recognizing the need for a balance between controlled language practice and communicative activities, the authors have created a large number of new activities that progress steadily from less demanding aural, oral, and written exercises to more communicative tasks.
The authors have also improved the manageability of the vocabulary by distinguishing between high- and low-frequency terms and incorporating vibrant visual aids. Equally important, this edition incorporates elements of Canadian culture throughout, placing the Spanish language in a uniquely Canadian context. Like its US counterpart, the Canadian edition contains twelve lessons, rich in pedagogy and topically organized and designed to encourage communication among early language learners.
