Publisher's Summary

If you have ever wanted to better your grammar and vocabulary in Spanish, then this is the book for you.

By going through six Spanish stories revolving around common, everyday activities, you will expand your vocabulary with words you will use often, along with learning more in-depth grammar by familiarizing yourself with these stories.

Each story tackles a fairly mundane task - grocery shopping or visiting a dog park for example - and in using these settings, this book will allow you the opportunity to see these words in action, thus making it easier for you to incorporate the new words into not only your vocabulary but seamlessly into the conversation.

If you have ever wanted a simple way to expand your Spanish knowledge, these short stories will allow you to do that at your own speed. Each story is roughly 2,500 words, short enough to read over a few times before checking your work against the English translations at the end of each chapter.

How you work through this book, how long you spend on each chapter, and when you choose to look at the English translations, ultimately, is entirely up to your preference. Everyone learns differently, and whichever way best benefits, you are always the one to go with, though this book does offer helpful hints for where to start.

Things you will learn in this book:

  • How to decipher unknown words in a sentence by using context clues (words that you do know the meanings of)
  • How to use the English translations as a helpful tool and not a crutch that you rely on explicitly to help you translate the Spanish stories.
  • Vocabulary relating to common events such as:
    • Trips to the mall
    • Going grocery shopping
    • Getting one’s hair done
    • Preparing and heading to work
    • Going to a dog park
    • Attending a dinner party
  • How to use this book to best aid you in your vocabulary and grammar knowledge gains

Even if you are a beginner in the Spanish language, these simple stories can work for you. There are not many difficult words that cannot be figured out with context clues, and if you find yourself struggling, you can always flip to the end of the chapter for the English translation to assist you.

As with everything new that one learns, practice makes perfect. You must be ready to put in the work it takes to make the most of this book and most of your time spent studying from this book.

If the things mentioned here interest you or you feel that it could be beneficial for you, then do not keep waiting. The sooner you jump in, the sooner you will see results.

This is a great audiobook

This is a great audiobook if you are new to Spanish and you want to find a way to learn vocabulary in a more fun and natural way. The stories are fun and interesting and the vocabulary lists at the end of each story are helpful for reviewing the vocabulary you have learned. I really love the books done by Lingo Mastery. They are a unique way of learning a new language and very effective.

this good

I used this audiobook to work on reading Spanish more fluently and it helped a lot! Even though I didn’t understand everything the context and vocabulary at the end of each story helped.

This is a great audiobook

This is a great audiobook for those trying to become fluent in Spanish. Just trying to remember way back to my high school Spanish I was able to read and understand much of this audiobook. Its set up as a series of short stories you’re supposed to just listen and see how much you understand

It's great

It's great for beginners but the stories are a little dull. I got through two stories and they are easy enough to listen but also I learnt new words. With that said they are pretty boring stories.
