Enjoy the tales of Mexico--in Spanish and in English!

In Stories from Mexico/Historias de Mexico, we've placed the Spanish and English stories side by side--lado a lado--so you can practice and improve your reading skills in your new language while enjoying the support of your native tongue. This way, you'll avoid the inconvenience of constantly having to look up unfamiliar words and expressions in a dictionary. Read as much as you can understand, and then look to the facing page for help if necessary. As you read, you can check your comprehension by comparing the two versions of the story. You'll also find a bilingual vocabulary list at the end of the book, so you'll have a handy reference for new words.

Stories from Mexico/Historias de Mexico gives you the chance to

  • Enjoy 16 well-known short stories that chronicle 1,500 years of Mexican history
  • Fine-tune your language skills while gaining insight into the rich cultural heritage of the Mexican people
  • Improve your reading and listening skills with free audio downloads of nine chapters from the book at
