Los usos de deber, tener que, y poder en historias
(Use of modal verbs: must, should, etc.)
Stories containing increased use of three modal verbs in Spanish. The verbs deber, poder, and que tener are used extensively to teach in story context with the aid of pictures verbs that are somewhat equivalent to should, can, and must or have to in English. All terms are illustrated with clear line drawings.
You will enjoy these stories.
La comida (Eating)
The book is devoted to foods and eating terms. Eating involves so many words such as food, chewing, swallowing, savor, meal, cook, prepare and serve that are important to know in conversation. You will learn how to order a meal in a restaurant, refer to food as tasty, and know words such as gulp and munch. All terms are illustrated with clear line drawings.
Words that involve walking, such as to stroll, tip toe, sleep walk, amble, wander, etc. are presented in story context with pictures to illustrate their meaning. The walk words are presented in context with other words that are associated with walking. No longer will you be stunned in conversation by not knowing the words for walker, cane, ambulate, stumble, trip, line up, move over, walk into and many more. All terms are illustrated with clear line drawings.
Action verbs that involve put, place, and set are critical in learning to speak a foreign language. In this book you will learn to feel confident in knowing how to say the words for drop, throw, place, put, reach, hand, pick up, lift, open, close, and many more. All terms are illustrated with clear line drawings. This book is highly recommended for intermediate learners.
Medios de Transporte (Transportation)
Objects of transportation and the words that describe transportation are always of interest to Spanish students. You will learn to understand and read abstract travel and transportation terms, such as vehicle, travelers, departure, arrival and destination. You will learn the terms for driving a car, taking public transportation, exchanging money and other important terms for travel.
