This innovative Spanish text, informed by current research on second language acquisition, provides a comprehensive review of vocabulary and grammar for a two-semester intermediate Spanish course. Organized around six engaging units, ¿Qué te parece? offers students a diversity of topics and perspectives to encourage critical thinking and inspire collaboration and discussion. Its communicative vocabulary and grammar tasks provide a smooth continuation and expansion of first-year Spanish, and act as a springboard to advanced Spanish courses. ¿Qué te parece? is also a fundamental text for students who will eventually become Spanish majors or minors.
