1 nic48703_fm_xi 10/2/02 10:36 AM Page xi autopage1 Autopage1:0sheri:8547d: REFACE To the Instructor Welcome to the sixth edition of Motivos de conversación! This brief Spanish textbook for beginners presents the essentials of Spanish grammar and the vocabulary needed for effective communication in everyday situations. Its attention to the four skills is complemented by an enhanced focus on the culture, people, and geography of the Spanish-speaking world. The title reflects the book s primary goal: to motivate students to use Spanish actively in different situations and cultural contexts. Each of the fifteen regular lessons of Motivos de conversación features illustrated thematic core vocabularies, real-life situations in the form of dialogues or narrative passages, and concise grammatical explanations. Abundant form-focused exercises and open-ended communicative activities help students learn structures and vocabulary, while encouraging them to be creative. Each lesson culminates with an excursion to one or more Hispanic countries, introducing students to some of the people, places, and customs that make the Spanish-speaking world so culturally diverse. Thus, proficiency is promoted not only in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, but in culture as well. Allowing for a variety of teaching and learning styles, Motivos de conversación is designed with flexibility in mind; it is easily adapted to programs that meet from three to five times a week, whether they are on a semester or quarter system. Moreover, all the core vocabulary and essential grammar are covered in the first two sections of each chapter, thus allowing the instructor the option of selecting as much of the material in the third section as appropriate for the given course. Motivos de conversación has several other features that make it an ideal learning aid for Spanish: a manageable vocabulary load; Estudio de palabras boxes that help students develop their skills in word building; Memopráctica boxes that offer students suggestions on how to study, memorize, and create their own learning aids; and five reading and review sections (Ampliaciones) that provide additional guided reading practice, targeted review of vocabulary and structures, and a test for self-assessment. Motivos de conversación consists of a preliminary lesson, fifteen regular lessons, and five review lessons (Ampliaciones). Each of the fifteen regular lessons is developed around a principal theme and has the following organization: Gráficos Gramática esencial Comunicación Cultural collages (Viaje por el mundo hispánico), containing photographs, readings, and poetry excerpts, appear after each lesson. xi

Motivo cultural (cultural note) provides insights into cultural phenomena and customs in the Hispanic world. Situaciones presents and practices useful conversational idioms related to the lesson s vocabulary. Para resumir y repasar, concluding each Grámatica esencial section, synthesizes the vocabulary and grammar of the current and previous lessons. Para ver de veras poses questions to students that take them back to the chapter-opening video still in order to discuss it in more detail. De la vida real presents realia from Hispanic publications that illustrate the grammatical points and vocabulary of the lesson in context and provide a point of departure for personalized communicative activities. Videotemas contains individual comprehension questions as well as a partner/pair discussion about the video episode. Poetry selections in Viaje por el mundo hispánico are also recorded on the Listening Comprehension Program (available on audio CD) packaged with the student text. Ampliaciones contain authentic readings, Repasos visuales (visually cued reviews), and Exámenes de repaso (self-tests). Each reading includes a prereading section (Antes de leer) that presents reading hints and strategies and a postreading section (Después de leer) with comprehension exercises. Useful appendices include verb charts (Appendix 1); information on punctuation, capitalization, and syllabication (Appendix 2); and answers to Para resumir y repasar and Exámenes de repaso exercises (Appendix 3). Spanish-English and English-Spanish vocabularies are found at the end of the book. Changes in the Sixth Edition Motivos de conversación has been revised and updated in large part based on the valuable suggestions received from instructors and students across the country who have used the Fifth Edition. The changes we have made to the textbook are minimal in accordance with the reviewers suggestions. Following is a brief description of the major changes to the student text. The chapter-opening page now includes a brief humorous feature called PARA REÍR. There is always a riddle sometimes two and, on occasion, a tongue twister. Related to the chapter theme and vocabulary, these ADIVINANZAS and TRABALENGUAS are intended to pique students linguistic curiosity and encourage their general cultural awareness. The GRÁFICOS section now includes new colorized art that makes illustrations much more appealing and improves the pedagogy of the text. PINTAR CON PALABRAS appears at the conclusion of the Vocabulario activo in many lessons. It offers students a final creative activity (to show mastery of current vocabulary) before proceeding on to new words and context. This section varies considerably in form from one lesson to another as it promotes provocative summaries and recreations in different formats. INFORMES CULTURALES is a culture-based exercise that now concludes every Examen de repaso in all five AMPLIACIONES. This activity requires students to recall key cultural information from the previous three lessons. Several poems in the Viaje por el mundo hispánico sections have been amplified or changed completely, providing students an exciting introduction to Spanish literature. The readings in AMPLIACIONES 3 and AMPLIACIONES 5 are new, as are, of

5 nic48703_fm_xv 10/2/02 10:37 AM Page xv autopage1 Autopage1:0sheri:8547d: PREFACE xv course, their accompanying explanations and activities. The Viaje por el mundo hispánico section following Chapter 12 has been revised completely and focuses on Panamá, Honduras, and El Salvador. All cultural notes and comments names, dates, census figures, and so forth have been updated with the latest information. The WORKBOOK has been revised to make it correspond completely to all changes and modifications in the sixth edition of Motivos de conversación, resulting in a tightly integrated program of materials. The Viaje por el mundo hispánico sections after every regular chapter often contain a brief poetry selection by a poet native to the region under discussion. These selections, which are also provided in audio CD format on the accompanying Listening Comprehension Program, are preceded by a brief introduction to the poet and his or her works, and are glossed to facilitate reading. This feature gives students an excellent opportunity to read authentic materials almost from the beginning of their study of Spanish, and may stimulate their interest in reading additional poetic or narrative works by the featured author or other authors. Multimedia Video. Motivos de conversación offers an exclusive, integrated 60-minute video that consists of sixteen episodes, correlated thematically to the Lección preliminar and each of the fifteen regular chapters in the textbook. Students will enjoy watching the diverse characters from around the Spanish-speaking world who populate the video. The video is integrated into the textbook in three places. On every chapter opener there is a video still along with introductory text and questions that serve as a video pre-viewing activity and introduction to the chapter themes. This text is accompanied by the video icon shown here. Later in the chapter, Para ver de veras asks a number of questions that encourage students to refer back to the photo on the chapter-opening page. After they answer questions about what they see in the photo and what they can speculate about it, students talk about personal experiences and, finally, try to relate the cultural aspects they see in the photo to aspects of their own culture. In the Comunicación section of each chapter is the Videotemas feature, also accompanied by the video icon to remind students that they need to have watched the episode in order to do these activities. Students first answer comprehension questions about the segment individually, then discuss personalized questions related to the video themes with a partner. Each time students revisit the video episode they will gain further insight into its content, the lives of the characters, Hispanic culture, and, by extension, their own culture. Additional information on using the video in the classroom, as well as a complete videoscript, is included in the Instructor s Manual. CD-ROM. Available in both IBM and Macintosh formats, the interactive CD-ROM that accompanies Motivos de conversación provides students with additional practice in each of the three main areas of their study of Spanish: vocabulary, grammar, and communication. Vocabulary displays from each of the regular chapters are reproduced on the CD-ROM in formats that help students bind meanings to the new words they are learning. Engaging grammar activities reinforce the structures that students have learned in the chapter, and communication activities give them the opportunity to record a conversation with a native speaker and play it back so that they can compare their pronunciation with the native speaker s! The CD-ROM also contains the McGraw- Hill Electronic Language Tutor (MHELT), which includes most of the form-focused vocabulary and grammar activities from the main text. Finally, the CD-ROM has a link to the Motivos website on the World Wide Web. The CD-ROM icon shown here appears with each main section head in each chapter to remind students to use the CD-ROM
