English for Legal Residents from Mexico
There are many legal residents in the United States from Mexico who have not yet passed the U.S. Citizenship test because of their lack of English language skills. Fisher Hill has an excellent series called English for the Spanish Speaker to help Spanish speakers improve their English language skills. The series contains four workbooks and four CDs.
Each workbook 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.
Adults like our workbooks because the pace is not too fast, print is large but the content is for adults.
