TEACHER’S GUIDE TO ACCOMPANY Piratas del Caribe y el mapa secreto
Level 1/2 Reader – Adventure

Unique Word Count: 185

Adventure, suspense and deception abound in this novel based on historical fiction. Set in the 1600’s, this engaging plot commandeers the reader through a pirate’s quest for a secret map and leaves him/her with rich treasures of crucial vocabulary and enhanced language skills.


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 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! Happy reading!
