Summary: Spanish for Reading and Translation is designed to prepare students to be able to read in Spanish, particularly for students enrolled in universities that call for a reading knowledge of a foreign language as a requirement for a graduate degree. Requiring only a recognition knowledge of Spanish, this text prepares students to answer content questions about passages and to translate English text into Spanish.

Features more-left:10px;margin:0px;'>
  • Focused preparation. Equips students with reading knowledge of Spanish through either focused attention on translation into English of a passage taken from Hispanic publications or by asking questions about the text's content and having the student draw inferences or conclusions from the text.
  • Focused activities. Presents students with the basic grammar rules needed for recognition and includes reading passages with increasing difficulty that contain the grammar points discussed in each chapter.
  • Focused skill-building. Focuses on encouraging students to actively engage with the text by activating their own background knowledge of the topic. Pre-reading exercises are designed to train students to approach all texts this way. Activating background knowledge should be the very first thing students do as they approach the task of reading in any language.
  • Focused Reading. Includes selected authentic reading passages after the first few chapters so that the student is not reading edited texts.
  • Chapter Organization is consistent. Organizes each chapter as follows:
    • a reading passage preceded by pre-reading activities focuses on skimming and scanning, followed by post-reading activities
    • vocabulary building information and exercises, grammar rules, and exercises
    • a final reading passage preceded by pre-reading activities to engage the student in the skills of skimming and scanning and then post-reading activities focused on translation and content.
  • Preliminary Lesson. Welcomes students with a preliminary lesson that can be completed the first day of classes so that the students can begin working with the language right away.
  • Additional resources. Offers more difficult readings, a list of reading resources, useful Internet addresses and reference grammars in Appendixes I and II. less
