Designed to meet the diverse needs and capture the wide-ranging interests of today's college students, AVENIDAS offers introductory Spanish instructors a program for the new century: one based on the research behind the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning, enhanced by content modules that build on students' interests (psychology, film studies, science, health & fitness, etc.). Culture comes alive in AVENIDAS in three distinct features: the 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 through the comments of real live people in and from those countries. Throughout each chapter, Comentario cultural boxes highlight aspects of culture as they relate to the surrounding situations and activities in which students are practicing language functions. Finally, the Panorama cultural section at the end of each chapter puts a selected Spanish-speaking country in the spotlight with short readings, charts and graphs, and captioned photos. The Panorama cultural can be used as the springboard for written reports, oral presentations, and other activities.
