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, ‘Selena’, make this an ideal read for advanced 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.
