YOUR SPANISH #4
This book is not for beginners. It is for those already learning
Spanish who want to improve their Spanish language skills. The idea is
simple: lots of bilingual texts (Spanish-English) to practice reading
comprehension and develop vocabulary, plus exercises to translate
single sentences from English into Spanish.
Everything is in Spanish and English, so exercises are useful to
readers of different levels of ability in Spanish. However, the book is
aimed primarily at high school and college students of Spanish, those
taking Spanish SATs, PSAT / NMSQT tests, or anyone else who has already
acquired a working knowledge of the language.
There are five units in the book, each one offering a mixture of single
sentences and longer texts. Every example of Spanish is followed
(usually on the next page) by a translation into English. This allows
readers to 'click' through as much material as they want, even if it's
just a sentence of two at a time. Unit Three is devoted entirely to one
very long text, and includes comprehension questions.
This book is not a textbook and contains no grammar exercises! It is an
additional resource to help learners of Spanish improve their language
skills. However, the texts themselves contain a wide variety of
grammatical structures, tenses, and set expressions in Spanish. The
vocabulary is also rich and varied. But don't worry if you don't
understand everything--a full translation into English is just one
