Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Las Puertas Retorcidas, billed as "The Scariest Way in the World to Learn Spanish!" is an exciting book and audio CD that teaches Spanish by capturing and immersing students into an intriguing mystery. The author, Dr. Kathie Dior, has created this bilingual 46-chapter mystery adventure with line-by-line Spanish-English text while uniquely integrating Spanish vocabulary, grammar, expressions, tests and answers into each chapter. The multi-illustrated book is accompanied by an audio book CD narrated by a native Spanish-speaking university instructor. Created for beginning and intermediate students ages 12 and up and adult self-learners, The Twisted Doors is currently being taught by the author at Purdue University's Gifted Education Resource Institute.

Review:

"Who says learning a foreign language can't be fun?... Las Puertas Retorcidas is one of the most entertaining Spanish textbooks we've seen in quite a while... Dior obviously believes that learning a foreign language doesn't need to be boring, and she does a skillful job at keeping the story frighteningly tense enough that language students will be drawn into it rather than viewing it as merely another exercise." Gerald Ericksen, Spanish about.com guide

Review:

"The Twisted Doors is so unique because it's a Spanish-English bilingual book, grammar book, and audio book all rolled into one." Laura K. Lawless
