¡Arriba! Comunicación y cultura is a highly flexible program—one that can be used effectively in a wide range of learning environments by students who learn in different ways and use technology to varying degrees. ¡Arriba! has been consistently praised for its clarity and for providing materials that are both motivating and easy to use. We believe that you will find these qualities reflected in the sixth edition as well.


From a new cultural focus in Perfiles that introduces the cultures of the Hispanic world through personal perspectives to new opportunities for cross-cultural learning throughout; learners can now interact with Spanish in a dynamic way.  You can also gauge your progress with new section-ending ¿Cuánto saben? activities that help you put everything together in realistic, role-play situations.  With the new Presencia hispana notes, you can see that Spanish is right outside their your door in your local community, making learning Spanish applicable and useful in your life.  See for yourself how this new, personal approach combined with the hallmarks of clear grammar explanations and a wealth of meaningful practice activities brings Spanish to life!
