Two versions under one cover: Novice and Intermediate
After years of oppression, Dionisio can no longer tolerate living in Cuba under Fidel’s iron fist. He longs for freedom and faces what seems to be impossible odds of finding it. He is shunned by his countrymen, abused by his government, and rejected by his family. This is the riveting true story of Dionisio´s search for freedom during a dark time under Cuba´s communist regime.
This book provides an ideal solution to teaching multi-level classes and differentiation! Read a simplified version from the front cover and a more advanced version from the back cover. Each version has a comprehensive glossary, which lists all forms of every word.
The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) make this an ideal read for students of all levels. 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 stories! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it! Happy reading!
