¡A Su Salud! is an interactive intermediate-level Spanish language program designed for students and practicing healthcare professionals. Learners work with vocabulary and grammar within the context of a telenovela called "La comunidad". The multimedia approach allows learners not only to absorb grammar and vocabulary but also to connect with other aspects of language learning that also carry meaning: where the conversation is taking place, who is speaking, the physical state of the speakers, the gestures that accompany the words, and the purpose of the exchange.

The ¡A Su Salud! package includes two DVDs, one CD-ROM, and the Cuaderno (Workbook). The DVDs contain the telenovela La Comunidad, along with accompanying interactive exercises. The CD-ROM provides software to make ¡A Su Salud! interactive and adaptable for online learning, self-study, a traditional classroom course or a distance-learning program.

Major features of the program include:

A 96-minute telenovela-style drama set in a healthcare center.

Authentic Spanish spoken by native speakers in a variety of accents.

Interactive exercises that are automatically graded with immediate feedback.

Repaso sections in each unit for grammar and vocabulary review.

A comprehensive workbook allowing learners to practice at their own pace.

Compatibility with Blackboard and WebCT environments.

A complete Instructor’s Guide free for download at www.yalebooks.com/salud.

A Recursos Web site with links to important language, culture, and health-related sites.

¡A su salud! was developed by a team of healthcare professionals and Spanish-language educators at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The video and interactive components were developed in collaboration with WrayMedia. The Cuaderno was written by Christine E. Cotton, Elizabeth Ely Tolman, and Julia Cardona Mack.
