Book Description

This is a dual language short story: the fifth in a series of traditional short stories from Spain, published in both Spanish and English on the same page, designed to provide the student studying either language with an engaging vehicle for language learning and practice.

Improve your Spanish while learning of a local legend from Madrid, Spain. Hear the history of a house haunted by a horde of helpful little henchmen.

Dual-language books are an ideal way to gain mastery of Spanish language by trying to first read the story in Spanish, and then looking at the 'answers' in the English translation at the same time. Once your Spanish reaches a higher level, these stories can be read by switching between the Spanish and English versions every paragraph (for example: read the first paragraph in English to get the idea, then only read the second paragraph in Spanish, then go back to the English for the third paragraph, etc.). The ultimate goal is to be able to read an entire story in Spanish, just 'peeking' at a few word translations in English when needed. Having the expertly-translated English text available at all times greatly enhances reading pleasure as it obviates the need for a dictionary and the accompanying tedium of looking up potentially numerous unknown words and idiomatic expressions.

After spending sufficient time reading dual-language books from our ever-expanding collection, you will become quite fluent in your second language while also learning a great deal about the cultures of the people from the countries where the language is natively spoken.

Short and easy read. Dual language format is good for Spanish learners. Would be nice to see more textslike this but with more challenging stories.

The blurb for this edition says "short stories for studying Spanish". There is, in fact, only one story and a very short one at that a d while 99¢ is not a lot to pay there are a lot other dual language books available which give you more for your money.
