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!

What if we could UNsee an event? What if we could UNexperience a tragedy? For 14 year old Brayan that would mean an end to his fear and paranoia and the return to his home, friends and family. Unfortunately, what Brayan has witnessed has left him alone and fleeing for his life. Will the hope of a better life far beyond the borders of Guatemala be enough to keep him safe? This is the true story of Brayan’s struggle for survival and his quest to rebuild a new life after losing everything.

The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) in the Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘Testigo: La historia de Brayan’, make this an ideal read for novice and intermediate 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!
