Aventuras, 6th Edition
Available fall 2021
Aventuras focuses on culture and communication, with a reduced amount of vocabulary and grammar presented to students in each lesson. The brand new Fotonovela video brings context to the lesson themes, along with other integrated video segments throughout the program.
Aventuras helps students connect to the language and culture of the Spanish-speaking world. Learn more!
The new Aventuras Fotonovela presents the adventures of a group of friends in Madrid, Spain. You’ll follow them through some of the greatest natural and cultural treasures of the Spanish-speaking world, as well as the highs and lows of everyday life. Watch an episode!
Included in Pronunciación tutorials and the Refuerzo de vocabulario activity, speech recognition analyzes student production in real-time and objectively determines whether a student knows the word. It provides feedback that helps students reflect on their language patterns and increases awareness of their pronunciation.
Lesson vocabulary words are grouped thematically in new tutorials. Each term comes with audio, an image, and an English translation.
Culturally relevant Communicative Goals at the start of every lesson with accompanying Can-Do Statements at the end of the lesson let students know what they will be able to do in Spanish as they progress through the program.
Cultural examples and references throughout Aventuras provide rich context to the language students learn. New Panorama cultural videos provide visuals for one or more of the paragraphs in each Aventuras en los países hispanos section.
Additional resources enhance the presentation, practice, assessment, and accessibility of Aventuras content. Included are audio and video scripts, lab and testing audio, presentation slides, an activity pack, and much more—all hosted on the Supersite.
