In Two lives, Three languages, Fishscale Girl talks with Cate about she speaks and thinks in three languages. This conversation inspired these lessons on learning to read Spanish.
These lessons are meant for people who speak Spanish and English and have learned to read English but do not know how to read Spanish. The lessons are to be supplemented by Spanish-language books checked out from a local public or school library. We hope that parents who read Spanish will help their children with these lessons.
Part one: individual vowels and letters that sound very much the same in Spanish and English
Lesson 1: c (as in cat), s, m, l, and the vowel a
Lesson 2: ch, d, g, f, and the vowel o
Lesson 3: b, r, and the vowel i
Lesson 4: n and the vowel u
Lesson 5: p, t, v, c (as in cent), and the vowel e

We hope that you enjoy these lessons.
