Based on the pioneering text Cinema for Spanish Conversation, ¡De Pelicula! uses recent feature films with a PG or PG-13 rating to build Spanish language skills in listening, speaking, and reading. The text also provides a unique method to explore the cultural concepts depicted in the films.

As with the parent text, ¡De Pelicula! provides a context for listening to the film through previewing exercises, background information, vocabulary, cultural material, and post-viewing exercises, including student exercises to be done in small groups. This version covers eight films and may be used as a primary or ancillary text in fourth year high school courses, for community college courses -- especially those language courses taught in the evening -- or in single-semester courses at most colleges.

All films are new to this edition and come from a range of Spanish-speaking countries, All may be easily obtained for classroom viewing or language labs, or for students to purchase or rent on their own.
