Emphasizing interaction and communication, this book teaches intermediate Spanish speakers to express, interpret, and negotiate meaning in context with fluency and accuracy — and within Hispanic cultures. It focuses on the development of basic skills—listening, speaking, reading—and provides all the sociolinguistic tools that allow readers to analyze, compare, and contrast the Hispanic world along with their own. Each chapter centers on a specific topic of high interest such as: the environment and ecological issues in the developing countries of Latin America; the Hispanic presence in the U.S; the question of identity; Mexican muralists and Frida Kahlo; new technological advances; Latin American women; the entertainment world; and more. For Spanish speakers who want to increase both their proficiency of the language, and their knowledge, respect, and love of the culture.

Recognizing that students enter second-year Spanish at disparate levels, the authors of Atando cabos focus on “tying up loose ends” and bringing students to a common proficiency level. Though Atando cabos has been carefully revised based on feedback from adopters of the previous editions, the third edition continues to emphasize interaction and communication in a culturally rich environment to increase.

María’s passions are traveling, reading, teaching and cooking. She lives in the suburbs of Paris with her husband and son, in a house full of “sabor latino”.
