    Cultural content


Communication Practice
¡Viva! prepares students to interact with confidence in real-life conversation by building listening and speaking skills. Communication skills and methods are modeled in the text, video, and Supersite, and are practiced using in-class and online activities.
Cultural Integration
Cultural examples and references throughout ¡Viva! provide rich context to the language students learn. Local customs, unique vocabulary and expressions, and regional highlights in every lesson connect to the Spanish-speaking world.
Engaging Video
Video is a vital part of the learning process, providing a fun and instructive supplement to the text. The episodic video series reinforces structures and grammar from the lesson, while cultural videos bring the world to your Spanish classroom.
Build Language Skills
¡Viva! provides ample opportunity for students to develop their listening, speaking, reading, and writing abilities. Reading passages include both publisher-created samples and authentic texts.
Simplified Design
A photo-filled design gives ¡Viva! a fresh look and helps students distinguish between instruction and practice, and clearly shows their progress through each lesson section. Spanish is shown in context on every page.
Supplemental Resources
Additional resources enhance the presentation, practice, assessment, and accessibility of ¡Viva! content. Included are audio and video scripts, lab and testing audio, presentation slides, an activity pack, and much more—all hosted on the Supersite.
