Cinema for Spanish Conversation, Fourth Edition, engages students in Spanish-language study through the use of feature films from across the Spanish-speaking world. Sixteen films, four new to this edition, motivates students in conversation, writing, and listening skills in addition to providing them with a broad and real-world experience with the culture of the Spanish-speaking world.

  • Updated information about each film, its actors, and directors
  • Color screen shots of the characters in the film to help students remember who’s who and to help them discuss the actions and qualities of the characters
  • A new section of questions (Opiniones) at the end of each chapter that ask students for their opinions on themes related to the film, sometimes on controversial ones, in order to facilitate active conversation
  • A filmography appendix, which provides a list of additional films for each chapter that have similar themes or are from the same region
