It is believed that these plays can be read to greatest advantage after students have had one year of Spanish. The Notes and Vocabulary have been prepared with that in mind, as much material as possible being placed in the Vocabulary rather than in the Notes. However, in the present dearth of good elementary texts, the book might be used toward the end of the first year; it is hoped that the vocabulary is adequate for such a purpose.

Author of the Day

Elin Barnes

But the one thing that she never thought would actually happen is to write (and finish) a book. Her debut novel, Justification for Murder, has, in the meantime, earned rave reviews and grown into a series.
