The book provides readers an enjoyable option to practice the language while learning about the adventures of a student that wins a trip to Spain. It is the first book of the series "Buen Camino". The character in the story is a student who after winning a trip to Spain; chooses to walk "El Camino de Santiago", all the way from Roncesvalles (by the Pyrenees in the border with France) to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia. The option of listening/reading helps learners who need to improve pronunciation. It also helps to increase vocabulary (recognizing cognates). It can help readers of all ages to advance in their Spanish-learning journey! It is intended for Elementary Spanish level. Most of the vocabulary has been carefully selected to match vocabulary selections and grammar tenses appropriate of introductory Spanish textbooks.

This first level book starts when the character is getting ready to go to Spain, plus the first experiences. In these pages, the vocabulary which is commonly known as the objects in the classroom, will have a more practical and engaging application when reading about what the character needs to pack for the trip and to keep a journal. Being the main character a student from the United States experiencing Spain for the first time, the reader will easily get identified with the difficulties and situations the character experiences. The verbs ser, estar and other uses of tener will all be combined in a subtle way which provides an excellent opportunity to review the differences in a different context. The use of present tense regular verbs, stem-change verbs, reflexive verbs and vocabulary related to common learning objectives, are incorporated in the first little book. These are the different sections: 1) ĦA prepararse! How much do you know about this context? 2) ĦA leer! Reading while simultaneous listening to the audiobook. 3) Personal Glossary: Readers look up unfamiliar words and write the meaning in their personal glossary. 4) ĦA analizar! Students practice the vocabulary as well as discuss ideas in the book. Check for understanding. Discuss cultural points. 5) ĦA escribir! Students write a short composition explaining why they should be selected to win a trip to Spain. The total audio book length is 54 minutes. It is advised to do a first listening/reading for the first time. Next, when repeating the content you can go chapter by chapter. Each chapter has individual audio options. Good practice for reviewing content at the end of the semester or school year, as well as for the start of a new semester or school year of an intermediate Spanish level.
