Interesting mini-novels with vocabulary and grammar lessons for language beginners. This first book in the Spanish series is written entirely in the present tense. Additional tenses and grammatical elements are gradually introduced in the story. New words and concepts are explained right there in the margins, so you can leave the dictionary on the shelf. Read the introduction for a review of basic language concepts. Then, if you need a grammar review after starting the book, it's easy to go back to the explanation page, then return to your reading.
What's New in Version 1.3
Easiest way to learn a foreign language!!
LOVED this book! I am not good in Spanish and I finally found a book that would guide me through the grammar and peculiarities of that language and now I keep getting A’s in class:) It is so true that an image is worth a thousand words and this book proves this. You find yourself learning SO quickly while enjoying reading a fun story. This book beats the common grammar books at school hands down, no question and told my teacher we should all use it! The idea is simply great and I hope they make more books from this series and hopefully in other foreign languages as well.
I loved this book! As a Spanish student it was so helpful to have questions answered right in the margins! Being able to click to get more information was really helpful. I found that being able to read a novel written in only the present tense was soooo much easier than deciphering the bland, boring Spanish language text books I've been using. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
Great teaching approach!
I love the approach that the author takes in teaching the language "as you go", and as you read a story! The pop-ups are helpful, well thought-out, and keep the learner going.
