We publish ebooks for people learning languages. Most of our books are fully bilingual, and they help you practice a foreign language by ‘clicking’ from screen to screen (our titles typically have well over 1,000 ‘pages’ to click through...).
Recently we wondered if it would be possible to teach a language from scratch using the same format. We wanted to be a bit different from other textbooks on the market, so we wrote a beginner’s guide to Spanish which doesn’t use any grammar.
Most people hate grammar, and it’s particularly daunting when you’re just starting off in a new foreign language. A book with NO grammar would be great, we thought...
So we wrote one. Here it is:
FIRST STEPS IN SPANISH: WITHOUT GRAMMAR! is an experiment really. It’s not a textbook, but it will give you confidence in the language right from the start. The book will not make you a fluent Spanish speaker overnight, but it’s 100 % bilingual, so every word you read in Spanish will be accompanied by the English equivalent.
The idea is to help you feel comfortable with Spanish through reading and practicing. Exercises are very short, and are all in Spanish and English, allowing you to progress at exactly your own pace, even if it’s just two minutes a day.
We think it’s a useful way to start (or restart) a foreign language. But we want to know what other people think. The kind of people who don’t like grammar!
So, if you’re interested in learning some basic Spanish, we’re giving away ten copies of FIRST STEPS IN SPANISH to readers of My Tangled Skeins. Plus, for the first person to respond, we’ll add two more books from our catalogue:
