KEY BENEFIT:Conversacioacute;n y controversiaencourages the exploration of "free expression" in Spanish on universal topics of importance and interest. Promoting a free and respectful exchange of ideas, this book allows readers to develop their oral conversation and confidence in a friendly atmosphere, rather than by having the "right answer" or reviewing grammatical concepts. KEY TOPICS: Universally appealing topics show the great similarity among cultures, helping learners 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 readers 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. MARKET: For advanced learners of Spanish who want to improve conversational skills.
