Level 2 and up / Novice Mid — Intermediate Low
Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is one of Mexico’s greatest artists, a remarkable achievement for someone who spent most of her relatively short life racked with pain. Frida expressed her pain through her art, producing some 143 paintings, 55 of which were self-portraits. To this day, she remains an icon of strength, courage, and audacity. This brief biography provides a glimpse into her turbulent life and her symbolic art.
The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) in the Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘Frida Kahlo’, make this an ideal read for beginning Spanish students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and Spanish), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible.
