Présentation de l'éditeur
Improve your Spanish while enjoying a traditional Castilian tale of the temptations of love which tantalize even the most pious among us. It illustrates clearly the dangers of revenge when, instead of being served cold, it is served blazing hot!
Dual-language books are an ideal way to gain mastery of Spanish language by trying to first read the story in Spanish, and then looking at the 'answers' in the English translation at the same time. Once your Spanish reaches a higher level, these stories can be read by switching between the Spanish and English versions every paragraph (for example: read the first paragraph in English to get the idea, then only read the second paragraph in Spanish, then go back to the English for the third paragraph, etc.). The ultimate goal is to be able to read an entire story in Spanish, just 'peeking' at a few word translations in English when needed. Having the expertly-translated English text available at all times greatly enhances reading pleasure as it obviates the need for a dictionary and the accompanying tedium of looking up potentially numerous unknown words and idiomatic expressions.
After spending sufficient time reading dual-language books from our ever-expanding collection, you will become quite fluent in your second language while also learning a great deal about the cultures of the people from the countries where the language is natively spoken.
