This book is for anyone that is learning Spanish or English, young or old, beginner or expert.
This Spanish/English story is presented in three versions. The first version is an alternating Spanish/English format, where the reader can first read a paragraph in Spanish, and then follow along in English. The second version presents the entire story first in Spanish, and the third version, in English. In this way, the reader can practice their comprehension with the full story.
Praise for Gabriel Drexler:
"The idea of this book is a good one - you have a short story that is written in Spanish and in English and the different languages are laced in between one another...I really like this idea since it allows you to quickly compare and contrast the two languages and easily correct yourself."
"I will re-read this many times. It is a great way to reinforce Spanish expressions compared to English."
"The story is entertaining, and the use of Spanish juxtaposed with English makes language learning easier, since my main reason for purchasing this book was to improve my Spanish skills."
