This advanced Spanish conversation book features a series of essays on a broad range of important, substantive, and interesting contemporary topics, together with vocabulary notes and explanations.

Topics progress from the most easy subjects to the most abstract, and include: Costumbres alimenticias en el mundo actual. El dinero, la inflación y el desempleo. El estrés y sus consecuencias. El alcohol y las drogas. La desigualdad social entre los sexos. La destrucción del medio ambiente. Diversidad étnica y discriminación. La presencia hispana en los Estados Unidos. La revolución tecnológica. La influencia de la televisión. Consideraciones sobre la amistad. La búsqueda de la felicidad. For anyone wanting conversational practice in advanced Spanish.

Each of the twelve chapters focuses on an engaging high-interest topic. New pre-reading activities lead into a reading that provides background information on the topic as a basis for discussion. The Expansió'n de vocabulario section then provides essential vocabulary for comprehending and discussing the essays and for working with the exercises that follow. These exercises will develop reading comprehension skills, build vocabulary, and improve students' ability to express and defend their ideas and feelings.
