About the Book
Many words in Spanish are nearly the same as their English counterparts, except for the word ending. This unique book identifies the 24 most common word-ending patterns between these languages and provides over 4,000 words that follow them. For example, many English words that end in "–ance" (distance, importance, etc.) correspond to "–ancia" in Spanish (distancia, importancia, etc.). Similarly, English words ending in "–ary" (necessary, ordinary, etc.) correspond to"–ario" in Spanish (necessario, ordinario, etc.). Using this system for learning, students can add thousands of new Spanish words to their vocabulary.
Perfect as a classroom supplement or for self-study, Instant Spanish Vocabulary Builder is appropriate for all ages and levels of experience. The accompanying audio (available for free download) allows students to master pronunciation of the most common words and phrases from each chapter by repeating them after a native Spanish speaker.
