For courses in introductory Spanish.

¡Arriba! Comunicación y cultura is a highly flexible program—one that can be used effectively in a wide range of academic settings by instructors who teach the course in different ways and use technology to varying degrees. Adopters have consistently praised ¡Arriba! for its clarity and for providing materials that are both motivating and easy to use in the classroom. We believe that they will find those qualities reflected in the sixth edition as well.

From a new cultural focus in Perfiles that introduces the cultures of the Hispanic world through personal perspectives to new opportunities for cross-cultural learning throughout; students can now interact with Spanish in a dynamic way.  Students can also gauge their progress with new section-ending ¿Cuánto saben? activities that help students put everything together in realistic, role-play situations.  With the new Presencia hispana notes, students can see that Spanish is right outside their front door in their local community, making learning Spanish applicable and useful in their lives.  See for yourself how this new, personal approach combined with the hallmarks of clear grammar explanations and a wealth of meaningful practice activities brings Spanish to life for your students!
