Yay! It’s Almost Summer
Memorial Day marks the start of the summer vacation season while Labor Day marks its end. Sunday, June 21 is the first day of the 2015 Summer Solstice. What is Summer Solstice? In the United States and the rest of the northern hemisphere, the first day of the summer season is the day of the year when the sun is the farthest north (on June 20th or 21st). This day is known as the Summer Solstice. When the North Pole points toward the sun, the sun’s rays hit the northern half of the world more directly. That means it is warmer and we have summer.
The day of the summer solstice is the longest day of the year. The length of time elapsed between sunrise and sunset on this day is a maximum for the year. In the United States, there are about 14½ hours of daylight on this day. So bring out your swimsuits, fire up the barbecue, and put on the sunglasses, because summer is almost here.
If you know someone who would like to improve their English skills this summer, please direct them to our website. Our books are great for Spanish-speaking teens and adults who want to learn or improve their English.
We have four workbook series to help Spanish-speaking teens and adults with English literacy. Each series has six workbooks. Each series can be used in conjunction with the other three series. For example, the Book Ones in each series can be used together. We recommend using Book 1 from the English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker series first. Then you can use the Book Ones from the other series. The Book Ones from each series support one another. The four series in this English literacy program for Spanish-speaking teens and adults are:
English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker
English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker
English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker
English Vocabulary for the Spanish Speaker
We also have a four book series called English for the Spanish Speaker. This is a whole language approach to learning English. There are four CDs or cassettes that go along with this series.
Our workbooks are excellent for individuals who want to learn on their own, for ELD classes, or for adult basic education classes.
Whatever you do this summer, I hope you have a safe and fun time.
