    FINALEMENT. Ma classe de français a lu cet livre très lentement - nous avons commencé en octobre, et maintenant c'est fevrier! J'ai lu livres faciles pour les classes des langues étrangers qui étaient plus mauvais, mais cet livre encore était ennuyeuse pour la plupart. Mais, c'est un livre bon pour enseigner la langue français. J'ai appris beaucoup de nouveaux mots. (S'il y a erreurs de grammaire en cette critique, je suis désolée. Je n'ai pas parlé francais depuis très longtemps.) FINALEMENT. Ma classe de français a lu cet livre très lentement - nous avons commencé en octobre, et maintenant c'est fevrier!

    I previewed this book and Noche de Oro to see if they would be good fits for my students and I think these will be great. We just finished a unit on Costa Rica (AdiosTextbook.com) and I really wanted a reader set in Costa Rica. The book reviews a lot of basic Costa Rican cultural points that I think the students will enjoy being able to easily pick up on. This book (past tense) does a very nice job of incorporating some nice advanced grammatical structures without seeming too weird (granted, it I previewed this book and Noche de Oro to see if they would be good fits for my students and I think these will be great.

This book (past tense) does a very nice job of incorporating some nice advanced grammatical structures without seeming too weird (granted, it IS a reader! But it isn’t too cheesy!). In addition to the cultural points (it isn’t TOO overloading on info either!) the plot was fast and pleasant and I have to say I was actually pretty surprised by the ending! I don’t have the teachers manual yet but the preview looked like it has some good and relevant talking points (like how long could you go without your cell phone). I recommend this for teens and adults learning another language. The reading is smooth and easy and has an interesting plot and some key cultural points. Also, the chapters are extremely short and make for nice bite sized pieces to keep it manageable. Great job, Kristy!

    One of my favorite FluencyMatters books. An enjoyable story will both expected and unexpected plot-lines and character developments. It was delightful to adventure through a reader for language learners and have to puzzle out which was which. I'm excited to recommend this to students. One of my favorite FluencyMatters books.

    3.5 stars. This was a solid book with an interesting storyline. I used it as the first book for my Spanish 3 class. They found it very accessible and were nominally into the storyline. I don't think there was enough of a cliffhanger for them to care much to read the sequel on their own. But this first one was easy enough for them to read and for us to discuss as a class. Not a ton of culture, though. I preloaded reading the book with a few lessons on conservation and environmentalism, but honest 3.5 stars. This was a solid book with an interesting storyline.

Not a ton of culture, though. I preloaded reading the book with a few lessons on conservation and environmentalism, but honestly those ideas didn't come up really in the book - other than Dr. Parker's field of study and the birds themselves. But there was no discussion on the repercussions of poaching those birds other than the health and safety of the birds themselves. The resource manual was okay. It had a few nice ideas and appropriate handouts/quizzes. However, like a lot if teachers' manuals, it was a little repetitive, there was no final exam, and it did not really bring in outside resources. The environmental/conservation resources/ideas I got from blogs. Still, I recommend - an engaging, easily accessible story that students can interact with on their own.

    I didn't enjoy this book very much. It didn't have a good storyline. It was about a girl who encounters robbers while going camping. The Spanish in the book was also a little bit difficult. The book was also long. I recommend this for people who don't like books, that want an easy to understand, longer book. I gave this book a 2 out of 5 stars because I didn't really like it and it was boring. I didn't enjoy this book very much. It didn't have a good storyline.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is probably the best of the CI books I've read. It was interesting. It has a few holes, but I guess that's what you get when you're reading a shorter book. I liked that Placido had a tiny bit of mystery with Juan Carlos and whether or not he was actually a bad guy and then in what way was he bad. Overall, decent book for Spanish II students.

    I read this book in my Spanish class and it was very helpful to my Spanish learning experience. The plot in this was subpar and was lacking but as my very first book in Spanish I’m happy I read it:

    Similar to the last book in french I read, the plot is decent at best but the book certainly helps my french. Recommend for learning french and not for leisure reading material.

    I have read 11 different Spanish readers at various times and this is the only one that ever got me to tear up. I felt for the main character and that says a lot considering this is a reader for educational use with non-native speakers.

    A cute, short story with an obnoxious protagonist. But maybe that's just because she's a teenager. Good for beginning Spanish students. A cute, short story with an obnoxious protagonist. But maybe that's just because she's a teenager. Good for beginning Spanish students.
