Synopsis

En una palabra is a unique interactive tool to help students learn about Spanish culture while increasing vocabulary and listening skills. Students experience the program through a series of video segments in which fifteen residents of Puebla - of varying ages and sociocultural backgrounds - define the same ten concepts: amigos (friends)familia (family)trabajo (work)pais (country)libertad (freedom)exito (success)orgullo (pride)individualismo (individualism)ambicion (ambition)felicidad (happiness) While these words are easily translatable into any language, the definitions offered by the speakers reveal the diverse nature of culture and how words convey individual and collective values, which are not always obvious. This program is a resource flexible enough to fit into almost any curriculum by setting appropriate tasks and expectations. Especially for students at the intermediate level and beyond, En una palabra can assist in understanding how cultural values are reflected in a language.

The CD-ROM includes the following features to assist students' cultural comprehension: transcription of each video; selective glossary; information about Puebla, Mexico, and its region; web links for further exploration; information about the local dialect; and easy navigation. There is also a free, online instructor's manual that offers suggestions for using the CD-ROM in the classroom at different levels. The content is presented entirely in Spanish and plays on both PCs and Macs, using the free program QuickTime. Language labs that purchase a copy of En una palabra, Puebla, Mexico will automatically receive rights to (a) post an electronic copy of the CD-ROM on a secure (password-protected) network for use by current students and faculty at their institution; and (b) loan the number of purchased copies to students.
