A superb learning aid, an essential spanish learners tool,
This review is from: Read And Think Spanish (Book): The Editors of Think Spanish Magazine: Learn the Language and Discover the Culture of the Spanish-Speaking World Through Reading (Paperback)
As a concept this book is fantastic. 200 pages of articles in Spanish on interesting subjects, written in normal spanish. The secret is that the obvious vocabulary words (i.e phrases and specialist words) are highlighted and sequentially written down the side of the page. Therefore you don't have to tediously keep looking through a dictionary.
Thus you can either try to translate everything, or just get the jist. I would recommend for an intermediate stage in learning.
