I feel like it served its purpose for me (new vocab and getting used to reading). I think I liked the last part best, but I'm also studying Literature. I got this because I'm doing Spanish on Duolingo and wanted something to use to continue practicing outside of the app.

Look at me, being all studious, working on my es-pan-yole in the summer.

This book is good for beginners. It starts with a basic story that's very easy to read with questions at the end of each chapter. It progresses to get more and more challenging. There are three sections, the first one is a simple story about two students, the second section was about the history of Mexico, and the third section was a shortened version of a famous piece of mexican literature. I found this book very interesting at first but as it went on, I lost interest. The history of Mexico sec ...more
I taught myself Spanish with this book when I was ten years old. There are no grammar explanations or exercises, just basic readings with short vocabulary lists for each one.

I found a copy of the new revised edition (1964) in a used bookstore. It is, as you might imagine, pretty racist and sexist, and the Spanish it teaches is pretty formal and old-fashioned. But I've never found a better way of learning a language - I wish I could find the same sort of book for other languages!

By the time I got to the last section of this book, there was very little that I could actually understand. However, I was pleased to find out that I actually have a larger Spanish vocabulary than I thought I did.

Hopefully, if I actually manage to stick with trying to learn Spanish, in the future I might be able to go through this book and understand a little more.
This book was an excellent resource for my personal studies in Spanish. I loved the way the vocabulary and verb tenses progressed throughout the text. It greatly improved my reading ability in Spanish. I highly recommend this book.

Great book. After years of struggling I found this book. Reading Spanish has helped me tremendously. I read better than I speak, but hey, I also speak better than I did before I found this book.
I'm a beginner, but I jumped into this anyway. Great help for my style of learning.
