Mosaicos: Spanish as a World Language I t’s time to talk! …and have a cultured conversation. Providing the truly communicative, deeply culture-focused ­approach professors believe in along with the guidance and tools ­students need to be successful using a program with highly communicative goals—with Mosaicos, there is no need to ­compromise. Recognizing the primacy of the relationship ­between culture and language, the new Sixth Edition of Mosaicos places culture up front and center, and everywhere in-between! • Over 1,000 language instructors have partnered with Pearson to create solutions that address the needs of today’s students and instructors.  • 100 Faculty Advisors have reviewed, tested, and collaborated with colleagues across North America to make Pearson’s MyLanguageLabsTM the most effective online learning and assessment college language learning system available today. Challenge: 8 out of 10 language instructors told us that better tools are needed to help students develop oral proficiency so that they will be confident in speaking Spanish. Solution: • Almost 1,000,000 students have used Pearson’s MyLanguageLabs to help them succeed in learning Spanish, French, Italian, German, Russian, Chinese, Portuguese, and Latin. • MyLanguageLabs helps to improve student results by offering a robust set of tools that allow students to hear native speakers, and practice their speaking. We include pronunciation guides, BlackboardTM Voice, videos, and audio recordings and are the only online learning and assessment system that includes VersantTM Test of Spanish and MediaShare. Students love the recording aspect of MyLanguageLabs, which allows them to listen to their own ­pronunciations, compare, and adjust to match the native speakers. ­Students’ communicative skills have improved significantly with MyLanguageLabs. —Charles Hernando Molano Álvarez Challenge: 8 out of 10 language instructors voiced that they are teaching more students than ever before, and consequently feel that they no longer have time to provide students with careful guidance to foster speaking and writing skills. Solution: • MyLanguageLabs allows instructors to easily create the course MyLanguageLabs automates teaching chores that are nonsyllabus, and assign and grade homework, providing you with meaningful. Let MyLanguageLabs grade homework and quizzes. the time to work with individual students, helping them achieve This gives you time to spend on meaningful pedagogical activities higher proficiency levels in speaking and writing, in particular. like engaging and interacting with your students. —Anne Prucha, University of Central Florida Did you know that…? • 100% of College Students are internet users • 50% are online more than 6 hours every week • Community College Students are even more likely than those at 4 year institutions to use mobile devices • 71% of students would prefer to use digital learning materials over print Zou, J.J. (2011, July 19). Gadgets, study finds. Chronicle of Higher Education Challenge: 6 of 10 college language programs either have completed or are planning to complete an Introductory Spanish Course Redesign, which will likely result in less face-to-face class time and greater numbers of hybrid or fully online classes. Solution: • Pearson Education is the undisputed leader in Higher Education Course Redesign. • Pearson is an experienced partner with over 1150 faculty selecting Pearson to implement a Course Redesign. • Evidence-based ongoing Case Studies and Success Stories demonstrate improved student performance in Course Redesigns that implemented MyLanguageLabs. • MyLanguageLabs offers the most extensive opportunities for course personalization that enables instructors to modify instruction according to individual needs, teaching style, grading philosophies, and more, which results in a more engaging experience for students. Redesigning courses around MyLanguageLabs has been a success. The curriculum and course requirements are uniform across all sections so students receive a consistent learning experience. Because MyLanguageLabs automates the grading process, instructors report that they have more time to offer students one-on-one assistance. When I examine the data from before and after MyLanguageLabs, it is clear to me what a great success MyLanguageLabs is and how useful it is for our students. —Jason Fetters, Purdue University Learn smarter Boost performance with powerful, personalized learning! Powered by amplifier and accessible in MySpanishLab, new Dynamic Study Modules combine leading brain science with big-data adaptivity to engage students, drive proficiency, and improve outcomes like never before. As the language learning and teaching community moves to ­digital learning tools, Pearson is supercharging its Spanish ­ content and optimizing its learning offerings with personalized Dynamic Study Modules, powered by amplifier and MySpanishLab. And, we’re already seeing significant gains. Developed exclusively for Mosaicos, each study module offers a differentiated digital solution that consistently improves learning results and ­increases levels of user confidence and engagement with the course materials. Language instructors observe that they are able to maximize their effectiveness, both in and out of the classroom, because with they are freed from the onerous task of basic knowledge transfer and empowered to: ❯ reclaim up to 65% more class time for peer to peer communication in the target language; ❯ tailor presentation and focused practice to address only the most prevalent student knowledge gaps; ❯ enable livelier, more engaged classrooms. How does amplifire improve learning? Study Modules consist of a comprehensive 1 Dynamic online learning process that starts with modules of 25 vocabulary and grammar questions that drive deep, contextual knowledge acquisition and understanding. Based on a Test–Learn–Retest adaptive module, as students ­respond to each question the tool assesses both knowledge and confidence to identify what students do and don’t know. Asking ­students to indicate their level of confidence engages a different part of the brain than just asking them to answer the question. Study Modules cycle students through 3 Dynamic learning content until they demonstrate mastery of the information by answering all questions confidently and correctly two times in a row. Once students have reviewed the first set answers and ­explanations, modules amplifire presents them with a new set of questions. The amplifire methodology cycles students through an adaptive, ­repetitive process of test-learn-retest, until they achieve mastery of the material. 2 R E S U LT S ! amplifire results, embedded explanations, and review opportunities are extremely comprehensive and ideal for fast learning and long-lasting retention. After completing the first question set, students are given ­embedded and detailed explanations for their correct answers, as well as why other answer choices were incorrect. This approach, taken directly from research in cognitive psychology, promotes more accurate knowledge recall. Embedding the learning into the application also saves students valuable study time because they have the learning content at their fingertips! Based on GAMING and LEARNER ENGAGEMENT techniques, AMPLIFIRE DYNAMIC STUDY MODULES take basic knowledge transfer out of the classroom and improve performance. Improved student performance and long-term retention of the material ensures students are not only better prepared for their exams, but also for their future classes and careers.

content and features in this edition. Detailed, contextualized descriptions are provided in the features walk-through that follows. • amplifire Dynamic Study Modules, available in MySpanishLab, are designed to improve learning and Â�long-term retention of vocabulary and grammar via a learning tool developed from the latest research in neuroscience and cognitive psychology on how we learn best. Students master critical course concepts online with amplifire, resulting in a livelier classroom experience centered on meaningful communication. • ¡Cineastas en acción!, a new video program created especially for Mosaicos, sixth edition, brings together five young filmmakers from different Spanish-speaking countries to attend a summer program at the Los Angeles Film Institute. As part of the program, each will produce documentaries on hispanic culture in the United States or abroad while competing for a prestigious scholarship for best documentary. Who will win? Students using the Mosaicos program will decide! And, of course, our five young filmmakers will not only learn about making documentaries, but will also learn about each other, and create new bonds as they experience the diversity of hispanic cultures in Los Angeles. • Each chapter begins with a robust and interesting two-page cultural section—Enfoque cultural—which introduces students to the country of focus and starts the cultural integration that continues throughout the chapter. • Midway through the chapter, Mosaico cultural provides a journalistic, thematic cultural presentation. The focus is not on a specific country, but rather on the chapter’s theme and how it is reflected in different Spanish-speaking countries, including hispanic communities in the United States. • Relevant and interesting cultural information is presented as the introduction to many activities through brief Cultura sections. Rather than just a boxed aside, the cultural information presented through text and photographs forms the precursor to the activity, making clear and direct connections between language and culture. Accompanying Comparaciones, Conexiones, or Comunidades questions encourage meaningful communication and cross-cultural reflection. • Teacher notes provide additional cultural information relevant to specific activities that the instructor may wish to highlight to further enrich the cultural aspect of the activities. • Learning Outcomes are provided at the beginning of the chapter giving students a clear idea of the expected performance goals. • Care has been taken to ensure that the ACTFL Performance Descriptors—Presentational, Interpretive, and Interpersonal— are put to consistent use throughout the chapter. A boxed Teacher’s Note at the beginning of each chapter details precisely which activities fulfill the requirements for each mode. Additionally, the Mosaicos skills section is organized around the modes. xviiiâ•… NEW Preface to Mosaicos, Sixth Edition • Advance organizers accompany the Situación role plays, providing guidance for students to increase their success in communicating. Each grammar module now culminates with one rather than two Situaciones activities with careful attention given to the activity’s “situation” being realistic and encouraging meaningful communication among students. Additional Situación activities are available in MySpanishLab and via the Situaciones mobile app including rubrics for activities intended to be completed in real time with Pearson’s network of native speakers from around the world. • The visual aspect of the vocabulary presentation has been enhanced providing even more contextualization for the new vocabulary. • Guided Vocabulary Tutorials are provided within MySpanishLab. Students work through a series of word recognition activities, most of which culminate with a pronunciation activity in which students compare their pronunciation to that of a native speaker. • Pronunciation presentation and practice is provided for each chapter within MySpanishLab with accompanying text and audio followed by activities. • Each vocabulary section now begins with an input-based comprehension check. The first vocabulary presentation is followed by an audio-based activity, Escucha y confirma. Para confirmar follows the second two vocabulary presentations, providing students with the first step towards achieving comprehension. • A new form-focused activity, ¿Comprendes?, follows the presentation of each grammatical structure.

Why Mosaicos? Why then… and why now? well as the new technologies that transform the potential for achieving more and better communication in the classroom. The new sixth edition of Mosaicos is more solid and more integrated than ever before, creating for students a multifaceted experience of the intricate mosaic of the Spanish language and its cultures. Over the past twenty years, many new and reimagined Beginning Spanish programs have appeared, but Mosaicos, sixth edition continues to offer a unique approach for this reason: It has been twenty years since Mosaicos first appeared in 1994, ushering in a new and evolved vision of how the elements that comprise basic language instruction could be combined in a highly communicative, culturally based language program. Its vision was complete and synthetic, both in the integrity of each element as well as the gathering of these elements into an integrated, connected whole. This vision of wholeness was transformed to become a sound and compelling approach, reflecting the nature of language and how it is learned. The Mosaicos title was carefully chosen to reflect the principles upon which it was founded and the manner in which it was structured. The most basic elements of this approach were the following: • A guided communicative approach based on solid methodological principles combined with years of empirical classroom experience, creating an informed and sensible pedagogy that works not only in theory, but also in practice. • Learning language in context with a focus on meaning. • The integration of culture as an essential part of language and of the experience of learning it. • A synthetic and focused approach to listening, speaking, reading, and writing. • The interweaving throughout the program of these elements. Mosaicos offers instructors the truly communicative, deeply culture-focused approach they seek while providing the guidance and tools students need to be successful using a program with highly communicative goals. With Mosaicos, there is no need to compromise. This inclusiveness of Mosaicos, sixth edition extends to the broad range of students often found in many Spanish-­ language classrooms. Accommodating the needs and abilities of all students, from struggling learners to gifted ones, without compromising either group, is a perpetual dilemma for instructors. Mosaicos, sixth edition provides a highly communicative program with an articulated focus on culture, built in such a way that all students receive the guided learning support they need to succeed and become accomplished learners as they benefit from the rich program and opportunities for communication. Even the struggling student’s individual possibilities for learning and communication are not shortchanged; the Mosaicos, sixth edition program offers the opportunity for achieving more than these students may have thought possible, allowing them to fulfill their true potential. The innovative and evolved approach taken in Mosaicos set a new standard for language programs and changed basic language publishing. Most important, Mosaicos has continued to evolve in response to current standards of language teaching, the recommendations of our many reviewers and their experiences in the classroom, as NEW to Mosaicos, Sixth Preface  Edition  xix
