Do you know a Spanish-speaking teen or adult who wants to learn English? Our workbooks make excellent gifts.
Our English literacy program for Spanish-speaking teens and adults includes four different workbook series. These series can be used in conjunction with each other. How does the program work? English Reading and Spelling Book 1 introduces students to reading in English. The English Reading and Spelling series uses a very systematic and explicit approach to teaching the forty-four speech sounds used in the English language. Learning these sounds will help students read and spell. When English Reading and Spelling Book 1 is completed, students are ready to practice their beginning reading skills with English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 and their beginning writing skills with English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. Vocabulary presented in the first books of each series is reviewed in English Vocabulary for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. The four series each with six workbooks, were written to be used together to give students a good foundation in English literally. Adults like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, there are lots of pictures but the content is for older students. Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go! There is an answer key at the end of each lesson and an English translation of the Spanish directions at the end of each book.
We also have a four workbook series called English for the Spanish Speaker. Each book in the series has eight lessons. In Books 1 and 2, the lessons are about every day activities. In Books 3 and 4, four lessons are about every day activities and the other four are about United States history or government. The print in the workbooks is large. The reading level in Book 1 is at the first and second grade level. The books get progressively more difficult. The reading level for Book 4 is at the fourth grade reading level. Each lesson begins with a vocabulary list, then a conversation, story, activity pages, and finally an answer key. The lessons are bilingual with the word lists, conversations, and stories presented in Spanish and English. The directions for the activity pages are in Spanish but the activities are in English. There are two dictionaries at the back of each workbook: a Spanish dictionary and an English dictionary. There is a CD available for each workbook so the student can listen to the vocabulary lists, conversations and stories in English. This series has been very popular with adult education classes.
