Sol y viento: En breve is an exciting new film-based introductory Spanish program that seamlessly integrates the feature-length film Sol y viento into the instructional and learning experience for both students and instructors. This brief version of Sol y viento: Beginning Spanish (McGraw-Hill, 2005) presents a briefer text that is easily managed for programs with fewer contact hours or as an intensive high beginner course.
The movie Sol y viento, created specifically for beginning language learners, was filmed on location in Chile, Mexico, and the United States. The film tells the story of a Chilean family and their winery, threatened by internal deception and external corporate development. A young U.S. Latino businessman finds himself intricately involved with the family and its winery as his company tries to buy their land. Later, as he rediscovers the past he fought to put behind him, he begins to question his own role in the ongoing intrigue. Mystery, romance, and the unexplainable forces of nature all play a part of this spellbinding story as it unfolds.
The Sol y viento: En breve textbook and accompanying ancillaries have been developed with and around this exciting movie, providing students with exceptional input developed specifically for beginning learners. Language is presented within the context of the movie; and linguistic skills are developed through engaging, meaningful activities that encourage students to develop real-world skills and abilities. Both instructors and students alike will find Sol y viento: En breve to be a highly motivating introductory Spanish program designed especially for today’s language learners!
