Have you ever wanted to learn Spanish and have fun at the same time?
Most of the time, teaching books are boring. They always have the same kind of format: Two (sometimes more) people talking about where the library is, or where to find Juan.
That's boring, and to be honest, it's not a great way to learn the language (not to mention that they don't always talk about things that you might encounter in your daily life, for example, a judgmental ghost, being the last man on Earth, or maybe find that the love of your life has been stolen).
But in this book, I will give you 20 short stories that will range from science fiction to romance, everything in between and sometimes even more. These stories will give you an entire picture of the Spanish language, and how to appreciate the subtlety of the language.
The Spanish language is rich, full of small differences between the different countries. Things that might be one way in Argentina might be different in Spain or Mexico. But don't worry, with this book, you will have a firm grasp on the language, and you will be able to understand and have a conversation with any Spanish speaker.
After each story, there will be a questionnaire section where you will answer questions about the stories in Spanish. I really suggest to grab a blank page, and write down the answers, or the small assignments that you will be given (don't worry, they won't be long!). Remember to write them in Spanish, so you can practice and use the language. Also, in this section, you will find grammar and fun facts not just from the stories themselves, but from the inspirations behind them, and facts about living in a Spanish country. I hope you like them.
All these stories are written from my heart, and I deeply hope that you will find them funny, mysterious, romantic, or at least entertaining.
That's my goal as a writer, and I hope you enjoy your time reading (and learning!)

Challenging, but a fun way to learn.
I’m in the process of becoming fluent in Spanish, which has been one of my main objectives since moving to Costa Rica from the USA 3 years ago. In addition to my daily interactions with locals and 2 hours per week of classes, I read newspapers and other materials. These short stories involved some interesting vocabulary, played with challenging conjugations and kept me hooked. The English translations after the stories were a nice touch, bu t not really necessary.
