El duende de Salento – Comprehension-based™ Reader


by Jade Greene


View Preview & Glossary

A legend is a story that has been passed down from generation to generation. Although many believe legends are historically-based, they generally are not verifiable. When Zaria’s parents impose restrictions that are founded on a legend, Zaria is determined to verify it is anything but true. What she discovers sends a chill down her spine and is sure to make your hair stand on end!

The exceptionally low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) in the Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘El duende de Salento’, make this an ideal read for very beginning Spanish students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and Spanish), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it! We hope you enjoy reading your way to FLUENCY!
