¡Vívelo! Beginning Spanish, 1st Edition

¡Vívelo! Beginning Spanish, 1st Edition (EHEP001498) cover image
¡Vívelo! offers a fresh approach to beginning Spanish based on a solid foundation of what second language acquisition research tells us about how students acquire and assimilate language and cultural competence. It is a holistic, culturally rich, task-driven program with engaging input and realistic expectations of what beginning learners can achieve in a first college Spanish course.  ¡Vívelo! pays close attention to the role of affect in the foreign language learning process by emphasizing what students know and can readily do with language, and by going beyond exposing them to the products and practices of other cultures to explore, compare, and embrace the perspectives they come from. It is designed strategically to ensure that beginning students of Spanish, even with a limited amount of language, can understand and make themselves understood well enough to function at levels parallel to their cognitive abilities and in a culturally appropriate manner.
