Today is my birthday and I turn 64. In June, I retired from teaching so now I have all the time in the world. So what to do? I have this publishing business, I swim and hike but I know I will have to involve myself in several social activities.
I definitely believe you are never too old to learn something new. If you know an older Spanish-speaking adult who would like to learn or improve on his or her English, our workbooks are excellent for him/her. With our workbooks, the pace is reasonable, the print is large, the directions are in Spanish, and the content is for adults. There’s an answer key and an English translation of the Spanish directions at the end of each book.
We have a series called English for the Spanish Speaker. This is a four workbook series. 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.
