¡Hola, amigos! is a highly accessible and balanced introduction to Spanish that helps prepare students to use the language in a natural way in a variety of situations. Focusing on the four skills of listening, reading, writing, and speaking, students are provided with many opportunities to practise and use the language, while increasing their cultural awareness of the Spanish-speaking world. The third Canadian edition has maintained what has made this such a successful program for students-its succinct and precise grammar explanations, the presentation of high-frequency and practical vocabulary-while incorporating more communicative and task-based activities and increasing the cross-cultural content. Overall, the entire ¡Hola, amigos! program continues to be a flexible option for instructors and students alike.
