November 2012, ©2013
¡Con brío! Beginning Spanish, 3rd Edition (EHEP002425) cover image
¡Con brío! makes beginning learners beginning speakers, It provides a solid footing in the basics of Spanish and broad cultural awareness that allows beginners to use their Spanish immediately with each other, with Spanish-speaking friends, neighbors and co-workers, and with Spanish speakers around the world.

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.
