Overview

Dive into the tales of Spain-in Spanish and in English!

In Stories from Spain/Historias de España, 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 language. 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. 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 Spain/Historias de España allows you to explore Spain's rich history. It included 18 well-known Spanish legends that chronicle almost 1,000 years of Spanish history. These tales will introduce you to an array of characters as dynamic and colorful as the country that gave birth to them. Moors, kings, nobles, rogues, and pirates are among those who will make these pages come alive for you! As you read these stories side by side, you will be not only fine-tuning your language skills but also gaining insight into the rich cultural heritage of the Spanish people.

This is a very good collection of Spanish short stories. It is easy to read in Sanish for intermediate Spanish students, even 201-202 level students and above. The vocabulary is challenging but not overwhelming. The stories sharpen Spanish reading skills and at the same time, teach about the history and culture and religion of Spain. here are stories from all parts of Spain, so one gets a view of the richness of Spanish culture, from the Celtic influence in the Northeast to the Arab influence in the Southwest.
