Complete Spanish Course to build Confidence in Speaking

Complete Spanish Course to build Confidence in Speaking

Spanish e-books to support learners as they begin to speak Spanish. in total, over 300 pages of explanations, examples, exercises and resources to help and encourage your students. Written in Spanglish, the English - Spanish mix that maximises exposure to the target language at the same time as allowing full comprehension (as long as the student is preparado to make a few guesses inteligentes). Cognates are used wherever possible. The course is written around 10 themes: introductions, countries, occupations, the family, ordering in a cafe, the town, directions, shops, transport and restaurants. There are also lots of varied activities throughout to practice the basics of pronunciation and using numbers. This book is designed to be easy to use in the classroom, and for learners to be able to read through and remember outside the classroom. It minimises preparation time. With plenty of pictures throughout, 14 point text and double line spacing, it is accessible to dyslexic students. This book has a friendly, conversational style and makes suggestions about how to study and how to remember new words. Non-Spanish speakers have read this book, and told me that they were able to read it from cover to cover. One reviewer said, "You don't realise when it is Spanish or English you are reading, because it all blends in." I hope Spanish teachers and students give this book a try, because I have found it to be successful in engaging my learners and giving them the knowledge and the confidence to speak Spanish.
