Introduction

SPANISH: GENERAL KNOWLEDGE WORKOUT. A new way to learn Spanish.

What? This ebook is a 100% bilingual. It is in the form of a series of general knowledge quizzes, with each question in Spanish then in English (plus the answers!). If you are learning Spanish, it’s an entertaining way to practice your language skills.

Simply ‘click’ through each question at your own pace, trying to understand as much as you can. Because the text is fully bilingual (Spanish-English), you will always have the help you need to improve and consolidate your knowledge of Spanish grammar and vocabulary. It’s like having a personal Spanish teacher at your side as you read!

Why? Because people have busy lives, and developing your reading skills in a second language is difficult and time-consuming. Clic-books are about little and often. Whenever you have a few minutes free, practice your Spanish in a relaxed and convenient way, building your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary quickly and effectively using fully bilingual texts.

How? Clic-books present you with very short examples of Spanish language, normally one or two sentences at a time. By clicking to the next page you see the same text, in English. As you work through the questions watch how quickly your French reading skills improve!

A note on the translations The translations in this book are as literal as possible while sticking to standard, everyday language. So, the English phrases do not always reflect the Spanish texts word-for-word. Use them as a guide to comprehension, not as an exact parallel of the original Spanish.
