As one of the best-selling Intermediate Spanish titles, the third edition of ¡Avance! continues to develop students' functional, communicative language skills through reinforcement, expansion, and synthesis of the concepts learned in the introductory course sequence. ¡Avance! offers contextualized activities that review language and foster skill development, while at the same time, preparing students to continue their Spanish major or minor coursework and for real-life communicative tasks.

The modern Spanish classroom is changing as are the teaching and learning experiences we all want to provide our students. Professors are offering more hybrid and online courses or, at a minimum, are seeking technology to extend learning outside of the classroom in truly effective ways. As such, professors are searching for more types of homework tools, better reporting features, and cutting-edge functionality to meet the demands of their courses and the needs of their students. Connect Spanish, McGraw-Hill's digital platform which accompanies the third edition of ¡Avance!, offers state-of-the-art resources never before available to intermediate Spanish, to address the varying levels of communication of intermediate Spanish learners with proven outcomes that improve student learning in measurable ways. The third edition of ¡Avance! is comprised of an array of integrated print and digital offerings, giving you the maximum flexibility to choose the most appropriate format and content for your courses. *Connect Spanish, including but not limited to the workbook/lab manual, LearnSmart, the video program, and chat tools, is sold separately and does not come automatically with the purchase of the textbook.

Advanced English Pronunciation

Publisher: Editions OPHRYS
ISBN: 2708013483
Release Date: 2012-10-02
Genre: Education

Advanced English Pronunciation has been designed to meet the needs of foreign language learners with at least upper-intermediate proficiency (CEFR level B2) who want not only to improve their pronunciation, but also to acquire a solid understanding of the rules and rationale of English pronunciation. University students who are considering a career in teaching as well as practising English teachers who wish to perfect their pronunciation will appreciate the value of this dual objective. Key Features: · The twenty recorded lessons with worksheets are suitable for self-study (ideally with a computer) or group work with a teacher (in a language lab). · Each lesson is designed to last approximately 50 minutes. . The book is divided into four parts, addressing all major aspects of English pronunciation - rhythm and weak forms, word stress, spelling-pronunciation rules, intonation and linking. · The characteristic rhythm of English, an important but often neglected aspect of pronunciation, is dealt with right from the start, in the first three lessons. · Basic work on intonation is integrated into each lesson and then reviewed and expanded upon in the final two lessons. · Seven different native English speakers from England have been used for the recordings, representing standard, educated varieties of British English as spoken by people whose origins range from Bournemouth on the south coast to Carlisle near the Scottish border. · An innovative exercise design allows the learner to evaluate his or her knowledge as the exercise is carried out. The learner is able to quickly assess which points he or she must continue to work on as well as which points he or she has mastered. · The exercises are varied and designed to promote active learning. · Brief musical interludes consisting of original recordings by clarinet and cello signal the beginning of each exercise.

The best-selling Integrated Korean textbook series from KLEAR is developed collaboratively by leading classroom teachers and linguists of Korean.

Grammar points are systematically introduced in simple but adequate explanations and abundant examples and exercises. Each situation/topic-based lesson of the main texts consists of model dialogues, narration, new words and expressions, vocabulary notes, culture, grammar, usage, and English translation of dialogues. In response to comments from hundreds of students and instructors of the first edition, this new edition features a more attractive two-color design with all new photos and drawings and an additional lesson and vocabulary exercises. Lessons are now organized into two main sections, each containing a conversational text (with its own vocabulary list) and a reading passage. The accompanying workbook, newly written, provides students with extensive skill-using activities based on the skills learned in the main text.
