Publisher Comments:

Encouraging the exploration of "free expression" in Spanish on universal topics of importance and interest, Conversacion y controversia stimulates creative, critical thinking for students in conversation courses at the intermediate level and higher. The topics covered are lively, controversial, and interesting and were specifically selected because they deal with ideas that almost everyone has an opinion on. As in previous editions, Conversacion y controversia, Fifth Edition fosters progress in oral communication, and challenges students to present arguments, to persuade, and to analyze and interpret the opinions of others. Features
  • Includes particularly timely and up-to-date topics such as terrorism, Spanglish, immigration, and the UN.
  • Written completely in Spanish without translations, encouraging students to "think" in Spanish and break away from mentally translating to or from English.
  • Pro/Con debates give students a springboard to engage in challenging and exciting verbal exchanges, improving their use of the language.
  • Exchanges of ideas allow students to develop their oral conversation and confidence in an atmosphere of friendly controversy, rather than by having the "right answer" or reviewing grammatical concepts.

Synopsis:

This book contains writings in Spanish about universal topics of importance and interest, such as abortion, capital punishment, and euthanasia. It can provide thought-provoking and interesting reading, as well as helping the Spanish-as-a-second-language readers learn to think in Spanish, not mentally translate to and from English. Completely written in Spanish, this book covers such universally interesting topics as marriage, abortion, euthanasia, suicide, smoking, capital punishment, and more. It also contains vocabulary explanations in Spanish. Designed to promote readers to not only read Spanish, but to think in Spanish, this book is useful for employees in companies where a working knowledge of conversational Spanish is necessary.

Synopsis:

Conversación y controversia encourages the exploration of “free expression” in Spanish on universal topics of importance and interest. Promoting a free exchange of ideas in the classroom, this text allows students to develop their oral conversation and confidence in a friendly atmosphere, rather than by having the “right answer” or reviewing grammatical concepts.

 

The universally appealing chapter topics show the great similarity among cultures. These help students examine and express their own opinions and beliefs, on basic yet important issues of life. A natural, direct approach, written completely in Spanish without translations, encourages students to “think” in Spanish and break away from mentally translating to or from English.

 

In this new edition, the majority of topics have been retained, with updates reflecting current social and political realities. Additionally, three new topics have been added: Faith and Science, Climate Change, and Governments and Politics.
