Learning English When You’re An Adult
Learning English when you’re an adult can be extremely difficult. There are several reasons for this. One reason is: you’re tired. You’ve worked all day and now you need to learn a new language. Another reason is: as you get older your brain is not as spongy as it used to be. Third, you’re concerned about making mistakes. Fisher Hill has a four workbook series for Spanish-speaking teens and adults to learn English. 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. There are also two dictionaries at the end of each workbook: Spanish to English and English to Spanish.
The series is called English for the Spanish Speaker. 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 students can listen to the vocabulary lists, conversations and stories in English. This series has been very popular with adult education classes.
