!Con brio! 4e gives students in the introductory Spanish sequence the opportunity to use their Spanish immediately with each other, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and Spanish speakers around the world. !Con brio! addresses the needs and life circumstances of a broad audience through a highly practical approach and focuses on useful vocabulary, functional grammar of high-frequency usage, and cultural content relevant to everyday interactions. Con brio 4e retains the strengths of the previous edition - efficient grammar approach, good culture, many instructors' resources, and robust media - designed to help students gain the confidence and skills they need to use Spanish in class, in their communities, and in their lives. The program highlights useful high-interest cultural information about Latino culture in the United States as well as the strong connections between the U.S. and Hispanic countries.
