Una heroína improbable – Comprehension-based™ Reader

by Faith Laux


Preview & Glossary Sample

Anabel’s thirteenth birthday brings her many surprises… a special message from her grandmother, a long-awaited opportunity to talk with Gabriel, her handsome heartthrob, and a terrible secret that not only threatens to ruin her chances with Gabriel, but also her REPUTATION! Will Anabel reveal her secret in order to save her classmate’s life? And if she does, will her reputation be ruined…forever?

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, ‘Una heroína improbable’, make this an ideal comprehension-based™ reader for Beginner/Advanced beginner (Level 1/2) 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!


NOTE: This book contains the word ‘fart’, which might not be suitable for you or  your audience. We always recommend that teachers read a book before they decide to use it as a whole-class read.
