Amazing tool for learning Spanish
I took Spanish for 2 years in high school but I could never get a full grasp on the material, this book helps you to understand every word it even gives you the definition of the word which is extremely helpful! I like how organized this book is and how it’s short stories rather than reading something boring to learn Spanish. It is a fun and creative way to learn! I highly recommend!
Multi-Faceted Learning Tool
There are a couple of features I really appreciate about this book:
First, the mixed media format. Learning Spanish in a traditional school setting we focused heavily on reading and writing but rarely touched on speaking/listening. I appreciate that this book integrates listening and reading to create a more well rounded experience.
Second, the consistent definitions at the end of every section. Reading more advanced Spanish was always a challenge for me because I had to look up so many words. Here, the word lookup is taken care of, allowing you to focus more on reading than mindlessly jamming words into SpanishDict.
If you are looking for a way to quickly improve your reading and listening comprehension, I highly recommend this multimedia rich format!
Great for learning Spanish!
This book is a fantastic way to brush up on your Spanish. I took Spanish in high school and wanted to revisit the language in my adulthood.
It gives you fun little short stories in Spanish, but then provides summaries at the end of each story, in English. Even better, the more difficult words in a story have a vocabulary insert at the bottom of the page that tells you what that word means.
This book offers great value to anyone wanting to learn or relearn Spanish in a fun and interesting way!
