FAQs about Clic-books
Are clic-books a language-learning methodology? No. Clic-books are not a ‘miracle method’ or even a ‘method’. They’re a just an entertaining way to spend a little spare time reinforcing and adding to your understanding of the language.

At what speed should I work through the texts? At whatever speed suits you. Reading slowly and carefully will allow you to try and understand every word and construction; moving faster will help you to read fluently for meaning, even when certain words or constructions are not understood entirely.

But I don’t understand all the language in the examples. When you read a newspaper or magazine in English you probably don’t understand everything either. Part of the skill of understanding a foreign language is the ability to extract meaning even when your comprehension is not 100%.

Are the translations here completely literal? They are as close as we could get while keeping to normal, standard language. So use the translations into Spanish as a guide for comprehension, not as an explanation of grammatical structures.

I sometimes find myself focussing on the general knowledge questions, and not paying attention to the language used. Good! A language is a means to communication, so if you can work through these examples of English and forget that they are a way of practicing your English, that’s great.

Does this series use the same questions as the other language-learning series by Clic-books? Yes, SABER Y APRENDER (the series for Spanish speakers learning English) and GENERAL KNOWLEDGE WORKOUT (the series for English speakers learning Spanish) contain the same questions. Hence, don’t buy books from more than one series.

This book is not for beginners. It is for anyone learning Spanish or who wants to improve their Spanish language skills. The idea is simple: lots of bilingual texts (Spanish-English) to practice reading comprehension, plus exercises to translate single sentences from English into Spanish.

Everything is in Spanish and English, so exercises are useful to readers of different levels of ability in Spanish. However, the book is aimed primarily at high school and college students of Spanish, or anyone else who has already acquired a working knowledge of the language.

There are five units in the book, each one offering a mixture of single sentences and longer texts. Every example of Spanish is followed (usually on the next page) by a translation into English. This allows readers to ‘click’ through as much material as they want, even if it’s just a sentence of two at a time.

This book is not a textbook and contains no grammar exercises! It is an additional resource to help learners of Spanish improve their language skills. However, the texts themselves contain a wide variety of grammatical structures, tenses, and set expressions in Spanish. The vocabulary is also rich and varied. But don’t worry if you don’t understand everything--a full translation into English is just one click away!

A note on the translations: we have tried to provide good, straightforward translations of all material in this book. But remember that there are potentially many ways of translating any sentence.

 SPANISH SENTENCES Vol.1:

English & Spanish

 

THIS EDITION: The dual-language text has been arranged into sentences for quick and easy cross-referencing. The text can be used on its own. However, the content is ideal for reinforcing grammar, and as a precursor to more advanced bilingual editions.

 

This digital edition contains the content in ‘English to Spanish’ and ‘Spanish to English’ formats.

 

Once a student has studied the basics, a suitable book about basic grammar is helpful. The suggestion is that it be studied more with the intent of recognition and understanding, rather than memorising and obsessive rote learning. Go through as much of the book you feel you can digest — maybe even the whole book — skipping over what is not easily understood. Then, read through a portion of text in this book, looking for examples of what you have picked up (or gleaned) in your hopefully not so arduous study of grammar. Even repeatedly seeing a word that you remember seeing listed as a ‘subject pronoun’ or a ‘third person plural’ verb of some sort is a great help.

 

Then, depending on your inclination, return to the grammar book (or your basic Spanish book), or move on to lengthier bilingual text — like in 2Language Books texts containing news or stories, for example —, or find some suitable Spanish text: a simple novel, a Spanish news website, etc.

 

Grammar books will likely have some verb charts. However, there are currently good on-line resources that go further — dictionaries with a verb conjugation ‘search’ option.

 

Many basic language books offer some form of audio support. Internet services — primarily news based radio stations — offer podcasts. Audio from television is an additional resource, and can be formatted for use on various digital platforms. However, if audio is an important component of your interest in languages, electronic devices that support quality text-to-speech (TTS) will likely be appealing.

 

With a library card, TTS technology (in a device that supports the relevant content), and the above mentioned resources, an entire language learning system is available for not much more than a cup of coffee! There is no substantial financial outlay to get you started. Furthermore, there are no additional ongoing fees (and updates), and there are no expiry dates on ‘premium’ content and resources.
