PUENTES, Third Edition is a one-semester program designed to meet the unique challenges of high-beginner, false beginner, or intensive first-year Spanish courses. With a unique power-pacing organization and a rich array of program components, PUENTES, Third Edition reinforces familiar concepts while motivating students to grow from receptive knowledge to active and accurate use of Spanish. Culture comes alive in this new edition of PUENTES in two new features: a new Puente cultural section helps students draw cross-cultural comparisons as they learn about prevalent values and important customs in the countries where Spanish is spoken, while a Panorama cultural section at the end of each chapter puts one of those countries in the spotlight with short readings, charts and graphs, and captioned photos. The Panorama cultural can be used a the springboard for written reports, oral presentations, and other activities. The new, third-edition PUENTES Video highlights the country explored in each chapter's Panorama cultural.
