Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

(back cover)
Hoy dia, saber ingles es mas importante que nunca. Todos los latinos que quieran majorar en los Estados Unidos necesitan aprender como communicarse con los norteamericanos. El autor, William Harvey, ensena que se puede aprender el ingles mas facilmente cuando se pone atencion al "mansaje" en lugar de memorizar las reglas de pronunciacion y gramatica. Este metodo practico e informal es para usted si no tiene la paciencia para los cursos tradicionales. Las Palabras y frases claves son introducidas, junto con muchos "avisos confidenciales" que le ayudaran a entender y hablar el ingles. Los dibujos y las caricturas le haran comprender el ingles cuando las palabras escritas no lo puedan hacer.

The Hispanics in the English class which I teach are all at different levels and have different strengths, but when I passed around the library copy of "Ingles para Latinos", Level 1, the students agreed that they would like to start with this book. I ordered copies through Amazon, and we have been using it for several classes. It is working out very well as a basic format for learning, although I always include related conversational opportunities and worksheets. The book works so well because even if some students are familiar with certain material, it acts as a good review. Because it is written in Spanish, they can read the lessons at home. I just emphasize the points that I feel are most important in class, and use the text as a "jumping-off point". My students are not interested in academics. They just want to be able to converse comfortably with their employers, medical personnel, and their children's teachers. This text is perfect for that purpose. Also the students are finding the CDs extremely helpful as they can listen to them at home or in the car.

Book is okay, but they are mixed between 'useful' vocabulary for beginners. CD's are hard to follow!! They just keep talking and talking and talking... non stop. The student does not have anything in the book that allows them to follow the dialogs. Waste of paying that extra $$ . Get the book w/o the CDs.

I have been working on teaching an ESL starter course that could be completed in as little as 8 weeks. After a year of research and planning, I have assembled a teaching team and we all decided that this workbook is the best for a fast track ESL course. There is a community college ESL course available in the same town, but this is more of a community service course. We use the audio CDs for part of our in class instruction. Students have the work boooks without CDs. For people who could not sit in class, we offered the text with CD's to take home. Buena Suerte and Good Luck.

This book is for Spanish readers. We are using this at church for people who are literate in Spanish and wish to improve their English. It is great to use as a vocabulary review and to motivate people to practice what they already know without waiting to be perfect. It is more enjoyable to use than other texts because it isn't too academic or formal. There are a few errors (typos) that an English speaker will need to correct. We plan on using the level 2 book also.

I purchased this book for a Spanish-speaking friend, and this book was exactly what he needed. This book shows how the pronunciation & spelling would be in Spanish, and then translates to the appropriate pronunciation & spelling for English. This enabled my friend to learn much more easily.

I teach and ESL class to a group of Latino adults. This helps to explain some difficult ideas for beginners. Por ejemplo: la diferencia entree "she" y "her". Tambien utilice pronunciacion fonetica en parentesis. Es muy bien para principiante principiantes...

On a trip north from where I live in Mexico, I picked up this book for my Mexican goddaughter who was then ten. She is now 12 and taking extra curricular classes in English. When she took this book along to show to her teacher he was very enthusiastic and approved her using it in class. The teacher said, "This is an example of the most recent and best teaching methods. I only wish I had enough copies for all my students." I was very happy to have discovered this book in the states!
