Fisher Hill workbooks are for Spanish-speaking teens and adults who want to learn English. We have many books so it can be confusing to know which workbook series to use. In this blog and the next one, I will explain about our different workbook series.
Our most popular series is English for the Spanish Speaker. This is a four book series. It is for Spanish speakers who know how to read and write Spanish. 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.
Spanish Made Fun and Easy is a two workbook series. It is for English speakers to learn Spanish. It uses the same vocabulary lists, conversations, and stories that are found in the English for the Spanish Speaker series. The activity pages include exercises to learn Spanish and the directions on the activity pages are in English. The print in these two workbooks is also large. Each workbook includes twelve lessons. The twelve lessons are about everyday activities.
United States of America Stories Maps and Activities is a four workbook series. The books are bilingual and were written to help students improve their literacy in English, Spanish, history, and geography. Each book includes information about twelve or thirteen states. Information for each state includes a story, a vocabulary and comprehension page, map and questions, and finally a chart, table, graph, or another type of activity, which presents information to the reader. Most stories deal with a historic topic. The stories are written on a fourth – sixth grade reading level.
