Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Enjoy the tales of Latin America--in Spanish and in English!

In Stories from Latin America/Historias de Latinoamerica, we've placed the Spanish and English stories side by side--lado a lado--so you can practice and improve your reading skills in your new language while enjoying the support of your native tongue. This way, you'll avoid the inconvenience of constantly having to look up unfamiliar words and expressions in a dictionary. Read as much as you can understand, and then look to the facing page for help if necessary. As you read, you can check your comprehension by comparing the two versions of the story. You'll also find a bilingual vocabulary list at the end of the book, so you'll have a handy reference for new words.

Stories from Latin America/Historias de Latinoamerica gives you the chance to

  • Enjoy 16 fascinating short stories from Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Paraguay, Peru, Venezuela, and more
  • Fine-tune your language skills while gaining insight into the rich cultural heritage of the people of Latin America
  • Improve your reading and listening skills with free audio downloads of four chapters from the book at mhprofessional.com

Genevieve Barlow is an experienced Spanish educator and author.

Synopsis:
