Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wanted to learn Spanish and have fun at the same time? 

Most of the time, teaching books are boring. They always have the same kind of format: Two (sometimes more) people talking about where the library is, or where to find Juan.

That’s boring, and to be honest, it’s not a great way to learn the language (not to mention that they don’t always talk about things that you might encounter in your daily life, for example, a judgmental ghost, being the last man on Earth, or maybe find that the love of your life has been stolen). 

But in this book, I will give you 20 short stories that range from science fiction to romance, everything in between and sometimes even more. These stories will give you an entire picture of the Spanish language, and how to appreciate the subtlety of the language.

The Spanish language is rich, full of small differences between the different countries. Things that might be one way in Argentina might be different in Spain or Mexico. But don’t worry, with this book, you will have a firm grasp on the language, and you will be able to understand and have a conversation with any Spanish speaker.

After each story, there will be a questionnaire section where you will answer questions about the stories in Spanish. I really suggest to grab a blank page, and write down the answers, or the small assignments that you will be given (don’t worry, they won’t be long!). Remember to write them in Spanish, so you can practice and use the language. Also, in this section, you will find grammar and fun facts not just from the stories themselves, but from the inspirations behind them, and facts about living in a Spanish country. I hope you like them.

All these stories are written from my heart, and I deeply hope that you will find them funny, mysterious, romantic, or at least entertaining. 

That’s my goal as a writer, and I hope you enjoy your time reading (and learning!)

Spanish Short Stories

My Spanish teacher told us to read stories aloud to practice pronouncing the vowels. These stories were great for that and after reading them over and over, I began to understand them more. This is a perfect way to help with comprehension.

Helpful book!

This is Wonderful easy listening for beginners that is easy listening for beginners to understand the speaker, if the speaker speaks too fast then I will get disinterested.. Also, the grammar in the story is very helpful too.

Love it

This is a very good audiobook to learn Spanish both grammar and communication as pronunciation. The audio is very clear, it is easy to understand. The stories are nice so you don't get bored listening. Also, with the vocabulary in the end you learn a lot. I really recommend.

Spanish Short Stories

I've studied Spanish during one semester, and I found this audiobook a practical way to enhance my vocabulary and review some of the things I've already learned. The PDF version was also really helpful. I especially recommend it for someone who wants to have a general idea of the language.

Five stars

I recently got the audiobook to listen to while reading the Kindle version and love the combination. The narration of the book is clear and at a pace that is comfortable for me. I also appreciate being able to hear and pronounce the vocabulary words included in each chapter. After reading and listening several times, I listen without following along in the book and find that both my comprehension and listening skills are improving.

Really great!

I bought this book because my current job requires me to know Spanish. I found the stories fun but yet effective to learn and refresh my memory from my high school classes. The audible is absolutely helpful to practice pronunciation. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to learn Spanish quickly!.

Perfect book

This book is incredible, I have always taken Spanish throughout school but I never really enjoyed it or wanted to pursue it. Now after listening to this book, I know a lot more about Spanish and I'm excited to learn more. It teaches in a way that is easy to understand and fun

Amazing

I very much enjoyed this audio book. I liked that is was stories instead of the typical vocabulary memorization. I'm not quite at an intermediate level, but I was still able to figure out a lot of the story on my own before hearing the glossary in English. I would definitely try another audio book in this series.

This is a smart way to get a lot of daily life vocabulary in & would be most enjoyable on the go! Though have a good knowledge of Spanish before you read this if you’re a beginner.
