Read this book for FREE on Kindle Unlimited - Order Now! Learn Spanish Let's face it: the language market is changing. English has been the lingua franca for a while now, but it's not going to always be that way. It's projected that Chinese or Spanish might take over the English language as the lingua franca in the next century. So it makes sense that you're searching this book: Spanish is an in-demand language to know. By knowing Spanish, you're opening the door to communication with hundreds of millions of of more people than you could speak with before. This makes you a desirable asset to a great number of companies and makes you an all around more well-rounded person. Learn Spanish with Stories Are you looking for a fantastic and in-depth way to learn a new language? Why not treat your brain and go about it the natural way? That's right, your brain has a natural way of learning language, and you simply aren't taking advantage of it. With this book, you'll be going through different short stories, all of which following the story of a girl named Maria and her kind family from El Salvador. Throughout the short stories, you'll be challenged and pushed to your limits - that's how you know the method is working. You'll never be left in the dust, but you will most certainly be immersed in the beautiful Spanish language. After every short story, there's an English version, in case you got totally lost, and a section with grammar tips and vocabulary to help you round out every short story with a proper lesson. Learn French Are you looking for the best way to learn French? Well, look no further. This book is, simply put, the best on the market for learning French. Why do I say that? Because this book does what language books should do - teach you the mechanics of the language, not a bunch of tourist trap phrases that you'll forget the second you leave the country. If books don't do that, then they make the critical mistake of going into far too much detail and managing to bore you half to death by virtue of the fact that they've spent 30 pages going on about three different kinds of articles. I don't do that either. What this book does do, and does very well in fact, is set you up with the knowledge that you want and need of French in a very short time frame, so that you can blast through this book and already feel like you're set up for success. Learn French With Stories "Learn French" is the ideal book for students of French who want to take their comprehension of the language to the next level. Rather than being a traditional French grammar book, "Learn French" offers readers a series of short, easy stories in both French and English. Readers can bypass the step of memorizing complicated French syntax rules by simply learning them as they read. The English version is always at their fingertips so that they can check their understanding, and each chapter includes a detailed vocabulary section at the end, which is excellent for learning new words. Learning vocabulary in context also helps with understanding and remembering words. It's an all-around better technique than using traditional flash cards, and it's also more fun! "Learn French" has a handful of features that set it apart from other, similar books. Each story is followed by a short set of grammar, vocabulary, and comprehension questions. Readers who want to test themselves before reading the English version of the story can skip to this section. The book is highly navigable, and answers to the question sets are found in a separate chapter at the end, so it's impossible to cheat accidentally.

The stories reflect not only the beliefs of various literary schools, but the preoccupations of French civilization, at the various times of their composition, with the metaphysical and psychological problems of man. Contents include Micromegas (Voltaire), La Messe de l'Athee (Honore de Balzac), La Legende de Saint Julien l'Hospitalier (Gustave Flaubert), Le Spleen de Paris (Charles Baudelaire), Menuet (Guy de Maupassant), Mort de Judas (Paul Claudel), Le Retour de l'Enfant Prodigue (Andre Gide), Grand-Lebrun (Francois Mauriac), Le Passe-Muraille (Marcel Ayme), and L'Hote (Albert Camus). Students of French, or those who wish to refresh their knowledge of the language, will welcome this treasury of masterly fiction. The selections are arranged chronologically, allowing the reader to witness the development of French literary art--from Voltaire to Camus. Excellent English translations appear on pages facing the Original French. Also included are a French-English vocabulary list, textural notes, and exercises. Unabridged, slightly revised Dover (1990) edition of the work published by Bantam Books, Inc., 1960.
