Spanish with Monsters is a language learning program designed both for independent and classroom learners. Monsters are the hosts of the books as they are metaphorical language learners meant to lighten the mood. “Spanish with Monsters: The First Date” deals largely with everyday situations such as the basics of getting around, ordering in a restaurant, negotiating in the market, making introductions, expressing likes and dislikes, talking about everyday life, family, obligations, and profession. Grammatical explanations are provided to help the learner understand Spanish as a language system. These pages are filled with audio, video, down-to-earth explanations, hundreds of self-check practices, an extensive glossary of words and typical expressions, self-check quizzes, and reviews.
An ideal workbook for beginning high school or college Spanish courses, this practical text emphasizes the development of language skills and pronunciation, while also offering extensive instruction in listening, reading, writing and grammar. If you’re looking for an extensive review, or you need to master the basics, this is where you will want to begin.
Originally created for teen and adult language learners already living in the Spanish-speaking world, the focus of the text is not simply language theory, but application.
Teachers may wish to use the text as a main classroom text or as a digital supplement to empower students with a diverse and inclusive guide that addresses everyday issues of living and interacting with native Spanish speakers. Appropriate for ages 13 to adult, the monsters are diverse, cheeky, and inclusive, allowing for a little comic relief as students master difficult concepts.
