Publisher's Summary

Do you know what the hardest thing for a Spanish learner is?
Finding PROPER reading material that they can handle...which is precisely the reason we’ve written this book!
Teachers love giving out tough, expert-level literature to their students, books that present many new problems to the reader and force them to search for words in a dictionary every five minutes - it’s not entertaining, useful, or motivating for the student at all, and many soon give up on learning at all!
In this book we have compiled 20 easy-to-read, compelling, and fun stories that will allow you to expand your vocabulary and give you the tools to improve your grasp of the wonderful Spanish tongue.  
How Spanish Short Stories for Beginners works: 

Each story will involve an important lesson of the tools in the Spanish language (verbs, adjectives, past tense, giving directions, and more), involving an interesting and entertaining story with realistic dialogues and day-to-day situations.
The summaries follow: a synopsis in Spanish and in English of what you just read, both to review the lesson and for you to see if you understood what the tale was about.
At the end of those summaries, you’ll be provided with a list of the most relevant vocabulary involved in the lesson as well as slang and sayings that you may not have understood at first glance!
Finally, you’ll be provided with a set of tricky questions in Spanish, providing you with the chance to prove that you learned something in the story. Don’t worry if you don’t know the answer to any - we will provide them immediately after, but no cheating!
We want you to feel comfortable while learning the tongue; after all, no language should be a barrier for you to travel around the world and expand your social circles!
So look no further! Pick up your copy of Spanish Short Stories for Beginners.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Language immersion made easy!

Any additional comments?

I'm a beginner in learning Spanish and I found that immersion is always the hardest since even when you may know the words and their meaning, trying to listen to native speakers (through TV or songs) can be challenging because of the speed of their talking and the little accent nuances that every person has. And even when it comes to reading materials, they are either too hard or too easy (child level) And honestly, I get bored of all the "Hello, my name is..." teaching sentences that everyone uses.

The nice thing about this book is that it gives you a full story to listen to, it's not too hard that you can't understand a thing, and not too easy where you feel like a child. It is read in clear Spanish, by a good reader that makes the story sound interesting without you getting lost.

The new vocabulary is provided to you at the end of the story. And you actually feel like you are listening to a proper audiobook and not a teaching book.

But with that said, there are two things to keep in mind:

1) You need to have a basic knowledge of Spanish, I wouldn't say it is for complete beginners who know no words in Spanish, but more for the Level 2-3 beginner to intermediate.

2) You still need to make an effort to get the best of this book, you can't just listen to it in one go and do nothing, I found myself repeating the stories over and over as I learned new words, I checked the accompanying PDF since I like to see the words too (The PDF is also very very helpful).

In conclusion, if you are serious about learning Spanish and improving it then this book is definitely for you. And I'm actually looking forward to other releases in other languages I am interested in.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. It has not affected my review in any way.
