Summary

"***For Low- to High-Intermediate Learners***

Improve your Spanish, and expand your vocabulary with topics that matter.

When it comes to mastering a foreign language, listening around your interests makes all the difference. But finding books designed for language learners can be hard! This book fixes that. For the first time, you’ll learn to improve your Spanish while listening about the history of World War II.  

Told through short, manageable chapters in intermediate Spanish, you’ll become confident in the words, phrases and expressions you need to speak about the topics you care about.

World War II in Simple Spanish gives you all that you can wish for from a real history book, without the tough academic terminology, which may be difficult for intermediate learners. The story does not focus only on the main events of the conflict, but rather it includes the less-known aspects of WWII from the famous battlefields to the social aspects of life between 1939 to 1946 to the international Spanish-speaking stage. 

Over 40 engaging and informative chapters, you’ll immerse yourself in the history of WWII and master Spanish in the process.

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • 47 chapters in simple Spanish, so you can learn about WWII without the struggle of reading an academic text. 
  • Helpful key facts at the beginning of each chapter to help guide you through. 
  • Chapters that are carefully written to be accessible for intermediate learners (CEFR B1-B2), so you can read purposively, at your level.
  • Word lists with English definitions in every chapter, so you can get instant translations of any difficult words. This means you can focus on enjoying the history rather than wasting time in a dictionary.
  • Fun-facts at the end of each chapter, so that you can dazzle your friends with interesting facts about the WWII period.

The chapters are written in Castilian Spanish. However, since the text uses mostly “neutral” Spanish, you’ll have plenty to learn, whether you’re learning the Spanish of Mexico, Colombia, or Costa Rica.

Created by Olly Richards, language teacher and author, World War II in Simple Spanish gives you an experience in real Spanish that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll be better prepared for using Spanish in the real world, speak with more confidence, and take a giant leap towards fluency in Spanish!

Intermediate Spanish practice and history revision

Short chapters; all in Spanish; spoken clearly at moderate speed (European Spanish accent); key points of each chapter presented before chapter begins so you know what to listen out for; lots of repetition of subject-related vocabulary; good revision of main points if you are interested in this subject; intermediate level B1+.
