¡Pura vida! is an original story-line video filmed specifically to accompany the fifth edition of ¡Arriba! Over the course of its 15 episodes, students follow the interactions of five principal characters who find themselves living together in a youth hostel in San José, Costa Rica. Students are able to see the vocabulary and grammar structures presented in the textbook in use in realistic situations while gaining a deeper understanding of Hispanic culture. The sitcom-like format allows instructors to show or assign segments for some chapters without being obligated to do so for others. Pre-viewing, viewing, and post-viewing activities are found in the Observacionessections of the textbook and the Student Activities Manual. The video is available for student purchase on DVD, but is also available within MySpanishLab. In addition, the video is available to instructors on DVD and VHS cassette.
