Reading practice is one of the best things your language learner can do. It provides context for the grammar and vocabulary you are studying, and it’s fun! Short 1-2 page passages in the French or Spanish have a glossary in the margins so you don’t lose fluidity looking up new words. The topics are cultural, so it’s a great addition to any language course. Parents, hand this over to your independent high school student. Read together with younger students. It’s a great way to build vocabulary! A few questions (with answers) about each passage let your student self-check their comprehension. The topics are high interest. It’s a practical addition any language program, probably after 1 year of good instruction. I would add this to year 2 and/or 3 for a high schooler.
