This past August, I started playing pickleball. It’s a new game. It was invented in the mid 1960’s as a children’s backyard game. Now, many older adults play the game. It is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and Ping-Pong. You play it with a wiffle ball and paddle. The court is smaller than a tennis court and the net is lower.

Now that I’m retired, I have more time to read and take care of myself. The health books I’ve read all agree on three things: eat healthy, exercise and get enough rest. I also believe it is important to keep learning.

Fisher Hill’s workbooks are good for older Spanish-speaking adults who want to learn English. The pace is reasonable, print is large, and the directions are in Spanish. In most of the workbooks, there’s lots of pictures but the content is for adults. 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. Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go!

Fisher Hill’s four-workbook series called English for the Spanish Speaker has been very popular with adult education classes. In this series, 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 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.Four book E series | Fisher-Hill.com | PickleballVisit our website at www.Fisher-Hill.com to learn more about our English for the Spanish Speaker series.
