Description

Product Description

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

In Stories from Mexico/Historias de Mexico, 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 Mexico/Historias de Mexico allows you to explore Mexico''s rich history. It included 18 well-known Mexican legends that chronicle almost 1,500 years of Mexican history. These tales will introduce you to an array of characters as dynamic and colorful as the country that gave birth to them. Animals, gods, goddesses, warriors, and conquistadors 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 Mexican people.

Some reviewers felt the translations of these side-by-side are not literal enough, but for me that''s okay. The stories are charming, and the translations are close enough to be understood. There are two vocabularies in the back: English to Spanish and vice versa. It''s good to study both; though it will be mostly repetition, there are some expressions not in both. For me, repetition is helpful anyway.

I have had trouble finding side-by-side readers appropriate for my level. (I would say I am at an intermediate to advanced-intermediate level) This book is perfect for my level, in fact, the best I have found so far. The stories are normally around three to four pages long and interesting. Another book I would recommend is "First Spanish Reader."

Great Bilingual Stories
Reviewed in the United States on May 2, 2012
These stories are great in both English and Spanish. I teach English to Spanish speaking people and Spanish to English speaking people at my church. These books are a great way to get both groups to communicate with each other. The stories are fun and fairly easy to read.

As with the other books in this series, the intermediate reader is presented with an interesting enough range of stories which are brief and straightforward - though perhaps a little too brief (most stories are scarcely more than three pages long), and without much complexity in language or thought. Perhaps good for high school students with 3 years of Spanish? The book could have done without the full page pen drawings and all the white spaces, and rather more text. The story of the friar and the scorpion is presented at much greater length in the Flores bilingual collection - an altogether more demanding book. The introduction notes are helpful, as is the glossary.
