Living in Cairo, Egypt is anything but quiet. Day and night Samir hears continuous noise in spite of his attempts to ignore or eliminate it. Even his family is noisy! Desperate to sleep and study, Samir makes a bold attempt to escape the noisy city– even if it requires abandoning his family. He soon discovers that living without family in a constant state of ‘quiet’ is not as wonderful as he thought.
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, ‘Silencio, ¡por favor!’, make this an ideal read for beginner 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!
