After nineteen years of helping people learn to speak Spanish and French, we now offer a title that gives Spanish speakers the opportunity to master English. Like all our courses, Breaking the English Barrier follows our proven language curriculum and brings learning to life with the unparalleled power of the iPad. In addition to the clear grammar explanations, relevant vocabulary, and thorough audio exercises, Breaking the English Barrier gives learners a virtual tour of the English-speaking world through interactive cultural articles and videos.
Level 1 (beginner)
Our level 1 book assumes no prior knowledge of English. It starts from the very beginning by introducing simple words and phrases that can be used right away. The “First Steps” lesson also presents all the sounds of the English language so that students can develop an authentic accent. Theme-based vocabulary offers students opportunities to learn words relevant to their daily lives at home, school, and beyond. An action-packed dialogue series appears throughout the book offering students reading and listening comprehension practice.
Throughout the chapters, easy-to-understand explanations unravel these essential building blocks of language:
- the present, past, progressive, future, and conditional tenses
- nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, and prepositions
- formal commands
Great vocabulary flashcards with pictures and audio
