Fisher Hill publishers has a new email address. It is [email protected]. Fisher Hill publishes easy to use workbooks for Spanish-speaking teens and adults to learn English.
Fisher Hill has a series called English for the Spanish Speaker. This is a series with four workbooks. 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.
Fisher Hill also has an excellent English literacy program for Spanish-speaking teens and adults who want to learn how to read and write in English. The series has six levels. Each leve has four workbooks:
a Reading and Spelling workbook
a Reading Comprehension workbook
a Writing Composition workbook and
a Vocabulary workbook.
The first book to use at each level is the Reading and Spelling workbook. The program uses a very systematic, explicit approach to teaching the forty-four speech sounds used in the English language. After completing the Reading and Spelling workbook, students are ready to practice reading by using the Reading Comprehesnion workbook. They can also practicing writing by using the Writing Composition workbook. The Vocabulary workbookreviews the vocabulary at each level. After completing the six levels, students will have an excellent foundation in English literacy. On our website at www.Fisher-Hill.comunder Teacher Resources there are placement tests to determine on which level a student should begin. After clicking on Teacher Resources, then click on Reading and Spelling and scroll down until you reach the placement tests. There are also instructions on how to use the placement tests.
Adults like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, our literacy program has 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 in the literacy program.
