Easy Spanish Reader is based on the premise that the best way to learn a language is to start reading it, immediately. Suitable for raw beginners to intermediate-level language learners, this bestselling title features engaging readings of progressive difficulty that allow you to rapidly build comprehension. Part I describes the adventures of two high-school seniors involved in their Spanish club; Part II describes episodes from the colorful history of Mexico; and Part III contains an abridged adaptation of the classic story Lazarillo de Tormes.
New to the Premium Third Edition are accompanying materials in the McGraw-Hill Education Language Lab app:
- Flashcards of all glosses in the book
- Audio recordings of select readings from the book (all of Parts I and III, and the first section of Part II)
- Audio recordings of select post-reading exercises in Part I; if your mobile device has the capability, you can record your own answer and compare it against the native-speaker pronunciation
Note: audio recordings (totaling 160 minutes) require Internet access.
Okay, you've studied some Spanish and feel ready to tackle the "real thing." Each of these books features short, contemporary readings or dialogues, historical selections, and simple literacy adaptations - all geared to building confidence in your mastery of a foreign language. Once you've finished this, you'll be ready to tackle Don Quixote or Le Fantome de l'Opéra.
