Book Recommendations

For Adults who are looking a book, and do not already have one, I recommend any or all of the books listed below (available online or at your local bookstore). The adult curriculum I use is based off of "Easy Spanish: Step-By-Step."  This is only the starting point though, as I supplement lessons with much of my own material. 

"Easy Spanish: Step-By-Step." By: Barbara Bregstein. McGraw-Hill Publisher: New York; 2006.

"Spanish Verb Tenses: Premium Third Edition." By: Dorothy Richmond. McGraw-Hill Publisher: 2015

"Easy Spanish Reader: Premium Third Edition." By:  William T. Tardy. McGraw-Hill Publisher: New York; 2015.
