UN ENCUENTRO CON LATINOAMERICA has been prepared to give intermediate and advanced students of Spanish an opportunity to come into contact with the culture and civilization of Latin America. Its purpose is to challenge students to gain an understanding of Latin America on the basis of its cultural heritage and its current state of development, rather than through the simplistic exception, is sensationalistic and repetitive. In addition, this book aims to develop the students' vocabulary, reading comprehension skills, and confidence in self-expression. To facilitate communication, the language presented in this book is authentic and natural, the style simple and direct, and the content engaging. Given the vastness and complexity of Latin America, its coverage is selective, leaving out detail while concentrating on vivid, imaginative, and thought-provoking portrayal. Students are required to relate the topic of each chapter to their own culture and to relate past events to contemporary ones. This book's most distinctive feature is its emphasis on current issues, cross-cultural analysis, independent thinking, and classroom discussion. In each chapter these objectives are met through a combination of factual and personalized questions and a concluding activity.
