The Power of Cognates
Learning to speak a new language requires our students to acquire hundreds of words, and unfortunately there are very few short cuts. To become reasonably fluent students must have a storehouse of words at their fingertips. But there is a secret that can help them. Since up to one third of the words in Spanish and English are cognates, students can exponentially increase their Spanish vocabulary once we teach them to recognize and use them. This book contains thousands of cognates in 27 types of English/Spanish cognate groups, plus two lessons on the most common false cognates. Each section begins with the most frequently used Spanish words in that cognate group. Teachers and authors have said this feature is particularly helpful in picking the most high frequency words to use in class or as they write. The book also includes tests, practice assessments and tips on remembering the words. 120 pages.
