Con brio: Beginning Spanish, Activities Manual , 3rd Edition
February 2013, ©2013
The 12-chapter introductory program takes a highly practical approach with a simple chapter structure, activities that students find relevant and reflective of everyday conversations, easy access to media including new video segments, a wealth of teaching, learning, and practice resources in WileyPLUS, and an online live language coaching option. ACTFL’s recent release of its revised Proficiency Guidelines is a reminder of what beginning speakers can and will do with the language. This third edition of ¡Con brío! is keenly focused on helping them do it with confidence and gusto.
