Description

Especially designed for the beginning student, this handy volume helps students learn Spanish by presenting simple, easy-to-read adaptations of classic Spanish stories and other material - with complete faithful English translations on the facing pages.

The selections, by magnificant writers of the past and present(Don Juan Manuel, Luis Taboada, Jose Milla, Eufronio Viscarra, Ricardo Palma, Lope de Rueda, Enrique Amorim, Juan Jose Arreola and many others), derive from the best and most genuine Hispanic tradition, and are revealing of the life and psychology of the Spanish-speaking peoples.

This dual-language book will enable even those readers with the most limited knowledge of the language to enjoy reading in the original Spanish from the very first day of instruction. Vocabularies and exercises are included as special aids for the student.
