The increasing study of Spanish in high schools and colleges has made necessary the preparation of a text of a simpler character than those now in common use.In the present text, especially in the first selections, the language has been simplified so that reading may be begun at a very early stage in the pupil's work.

All verb forms occurring in the text, whether regular or irregular, are given in the vocabulary.
