Popular English Programs from Fisher Hill
Fisher Hill has two popular programs to help teens and adults learn English. We have an ESL series and a literacy program. Both the ESL series and the literacy program are made up of workbooks. The workbooks are designed to be easy to use. On each page, the directions are short and concise. The work on each page is designed to not be overwhelming for the student. Both programs are geared for Spanish-speaking teens and adults but the lessons in the workbooks are to learn English so anyone wanting to learn English can greatly benefit from using our workbooks.
Our ESL series is 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.
Our English literacy program includes four different series. These four series are to be used in conjunction with each other. The very first book to use would be English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. This workbook introduces students to reading in English. The workbook uses a very systematic, explicit approach to teaching the forty-four speech sounds used in the English language. After completing English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1, students are ready to practice their beginning reading skills by using English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. They can also begin practicing writing by using English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. English Vocabulary for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 reviews the vocabulary in the other three workbooks. After completing Level 1 in the program, students can begin Level 2. After completing the six levels, students have a very good foundation in English literacy.
Each level in the English literacy program contains:
an English Reading and Spelling workbook
English Reading Comprehension workbook
English Writing Composition workbook
and an English Vocabulary workbook
Adults like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are short and consise, 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.
