If you know a Spanish-speaking teen or adult who has set a New Year’s Resolution to learn English, our series English for the Spanish Speaker would be great for them!
English for the Spanish Speaker is a series which consists of four easy to use workbooks. Book 1 starts out very basic and then the books get progressively more difficult but at a very reasonable pace. Each workbook 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 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 this series because it’s easy to use and the progression is at a very reasonable pace. Teachers like the series because everything is ready to go. Again Happy New Year.
