Summary

As one of the best-selling Intermediate Spanish titles, the third edition of ¡Avance! continues to develop students’ functional, communicative language skills through reinforcement, expansion, and synthesis of the concepts learned in the introductory course sequence. ¡Avance! offers contextualized activities that review language and foster skill development, while at the same time, preparing students to continue their Spanish major or minor coursework and for real-life communicative tasks. Recognizing the need for cultural competence simultaneously coupled with the desire to introduce students to literature at the intermediate level, the 3rd edition of ¡Avance! includes cultural and literary texts in every chapter, creating a program that meets instructors’ demands that intermediate-level instructional materials be not merely contextualized but also content-rich and interesting, as well as motivating to today’s students.

The modern Spanish classroom is changing as are the teaching and learning experiences we all want to provide our students. Professors are offering more hybrid and online courses or, at a minimum, are seeking technology to extend learning outside of the classroom in truly effective ways. As such, professors are searching for more types of homework tools, better reporting features, and cutting-edge functionality to meet the demands of their courses and the needs of their students. Connect Spanish, McGraw-Hill’s digital platform which accompanies the third edition of ¡Avance!, offers state-of-the-art resources never before available to intermediate Spanish, to address the varying levels of communication of intermediate Spanish learners with proven outcomes that improve student learning in measurable ways.

The third edition of ¡Avance! is comprised of an array of integrated print and digital offerings, giving you the maximum flexibility to choose the most appropriate format and content for your courses.
