    What I miss about every language program that I have tried is the lack of at least one page of story/sentences that I can read silently or aloud. I would feel much more confident if I could just read a page of text and understand it because it was developed from my lessons. Also, it is easy to say a word verbally in isolation, but to read lines of script would be so nice to get the rhythm of the language and overcome being tongue-tied when saying a string of words.

      You don’t reference which language you are learning. As a beginner one first learns words and then builds upon that. Initially that might just be a noun and a verb. Then it might be a noun with a conjugated verb. Then it becomes a question such as, Where is the bank?, Where is the restaurant?, Where is the hotel?. Eventually the beginner will have enough vocabulary which when learned in an appropriate building-block approach that these patterns and words can carry them through basic conversations and situations.

      Reading a page of text is an entirely different process. Whereas speaking the language and interacting with others is an active process, reading is passive. How much of the text do you want to understand? Do you want new vocabulary words included which you have never seen and don’t know how to pronounce? How you speak to an individual can be very different from reading a story or a newspaper.

      Bilingual Books focuses upon teaching people how to speak the language and interact with others in a variety of situations. If you want to practice reading, avail yourself of magazines and newspapers in the foreign language. Another option, as a beginner, is to read children’s books in the foreign language.

    Hello Kristine
    I saw Learn Spanish 10 minutes a day in a seco d handbookstore in Austin Texas. I am a nursing professor and considering tutoring spanish students in which English is their second language. Is the learn english the same content as learn spanish? If so the students and I can learn from the same text.

      Our book “INGLÉS en 10 minutos al día” (https://www.bbks.com/ingles/book.aspx) follows the same format and methodology as “SPANISH in 10 minutes a day.” As it is designed specifically for Spanish speakers wishing to learn English the phonetics are also crafted specifically for those whose first language is Spanish. There are some vocabulary variations given that certain words are appropriate for those learning Spanish and others words work best for those learning English. If you follow the link provided you can print a few of the INGLÉS book which you can then also compare to your SPANISH book. Good luck with both!

    Hi, I am learning Russian. I am stuck on the words здравствуйте and здравствуй. Do you have an easy pronunciation syllable by syllable! The majority of pronunciation guides do not help me. Could you help me, please?

      Those are pretty good tongue twisters! Try “zdrahv-stvoo-tyeh.” I have to ask, why not simply say “ahl-loh” or “pree-vyet” as a beginner and as you become more comfortable with the language then move on to these more challenging words?

      Good luck!

    Hi Kristine,
    I recently bought a Portuguese 10 minutes a day book at Amazon, and I wonder how can I download the digital exercises. I would like to try it before recommending it to students.
