Learn Spanish Collection - 5 Books (collection)
The Spanish Collection contains four books that will help primary-school aged children learn how to speak Spanish. Perfect for non-linguist parents, the colourful books use a variety of proven learning methods to introduce the Spanish language to children aged 4 and above. The set contains a colouring in book, a phrase book and exercise books featuring the 'Hide and Speak' method, where children are encouraged to hide a word, remember them and then talk out loud. The 'look, cover, write, check' exercise also ensures the Spanish language is sinking in. The books feature discussion points to promote speaking Spanish and lively ideas to guarantee that learning is fun.
Jonathan Coe delivers something quite different. His is a unique voice that is deeply intelligent as well as funny, quirky and brilliantly observed. The Rotters' Club skilfully captures the 1970s with its strikes, terrorist attacks and growing racial tension. The Dwarves of Death is a clever and funny novel that manages to marry murder with music, while The Accidental Woman is the sensationally good tale of a woman unable to find any purpose or direction in her life. Coe discusses serious issues with a supreme satirical wit.
