You can find all kinds of information at public libraries. Besides a multitude of books, they’ve got computers with fast internet, comfortable chairs for reading, and tables for doing research or work.
Many libraries have our English for the Spanish Speaker series. Even though these workbooks are inexpensive, if you don’t have the funds to buy the series, you can check the books out from the library or use the books at the library. If you need a quiet place to concentrate and work, a table or one of thestudy corrals at the library is a good place to be. Plus, most libraries have air conditioning. If your library doesn’t carry our English for the Spanish Speaker series, you can ask them to order the four workbooks.
English for the Spanish Speaker is afour 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.
