Book Synopsis

If you need to learn Spanish in order to navigate the situations of everyday life, you’ll love this book! 

Spanish with Monsters (SWIM) is a language learning program designed both for independent and classroom learners. Unlike any other language program on the market, this worktext is practical for learning everyday conversation skills and informative about meaningful language topics. SWIM uses a combination of learning strategies to keep the student focused on the goal of gaining proficiency through interaction.

Originally developed for adult learners living abroad, monsters were created to spark conversation and lighten the mood. Each lesson is designed to help students achieve a specific set of relevant objectives.

The book is divided into 17 sections, 1-2 weeks each, depending on the pace of the learner. 

SWIM Level One, “The First Date” focuses on first interactions, obtaining goods and services, and self-identity. You’ll get to know covergirl monster Blanca as she goes to the restaurant, negotiates for goods and services, greets others, asks for directions and tries online dating. In the culminating section Blanca meets her long-lost extended family, learns to express herself and explores personal and professional goals.

An ideal language guide for beginner to lower intermediate learners, this practical book emphasizes the development of language skills and pronunciation, while also offering extensive instruction in listening, reading, writing and grammar. If you’re looking for a review, or you need to master the basics, this is a great place to start. 

Teachers may wish to use SWIM as a main classroom text, or as a digital supplement.
The no-frills style explanations, self-checking practices, and in-app glossary make it ideal for 'sub' days.

Appropriate for ages 12 to adult, the monsters are silly, upbeat, and fun for all ages.
