English Biographies for Spanish Speakers
Fisher Hill’s six book workbook series English Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker contains English Biographies for Spanish Speakers and many biographies about people from around the world. A biography is an account about someone’s life written by someone else. An autobiography is an account of a person’s life written by that person. Some of the biographies included in our series English Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker are: Walt Disney, P.T. Barnum, Babe Ruth, Archie Carr, Amelia Earhart, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Dolly Parton, Smokey Robinson, Maya Angelou, Chris Gardner, Bono, Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein and Paul Farmer.
Each of the six workbooks in the series English Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker is made up of twenty lessons. Lessons include practice with fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, phonology and phonics. There is an answer key at the end of each lesson.
Reading comprehension is the goal of reading. Reading is an essential skill for jobs and daily life. Many people enjoy reading and say it is one of their favorite pastimes. Others read only when it is necessary. Whichever the case may be, everyone needs to know how to read. Learning to read comes more easily to some people than others. Most people need to be taught how to read. It is different from learning how to talk. Learning to read can be very difficult for some people, but with practice, most everyone can learn to read.
Adults like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, there’s lots of pictures but the content is for adults. Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go! There’s an answer key at the the end of each lesson and an English translation of the Spanish directions at the end of each book.
