Lucho is one of 365,000 DREAMERS– students who qualify for the DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) Act. He dreams of going to college and running on the university track team, and he thinks that tuition costs are the only hurdle standing in his way. Lucho trains tirelessly to earn a track scholarship, only to have his dreams dashed in one split second! This is his story of dreams, loss, and the will to overcome.
This Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘Dreamer’, strategically weaves high-frequency language structures into a compelling story. Even upper level language students need repeated exposure to language structures in order to fully acquire them; that’s why Fluency Matters’ intermediate readers maintain a high frequency factor of high-level language structures, thus helping learners progress beyond typical proficiency levels. Nevertheless, we encourage readers NOT to focus on language structures or the advanced grammatical features embedded in this story. Rather, focus on enjoying the story itself! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it! We hope you enjoy reading your way to FLUENCY!
