About this project
I have been in the process of writing "Spanish Is Your Amigo" for 2 months. It will be complete before the end of June.
I took Spanish classes for 10 years, I studied abroad and I received a Spanish minor in 2010. Throughout the years, I searched in vain for a completely condensed and updated Spanish textbook.
I decided to create the textbook I always wish I had. The vision is an all-in-one beginners, intermediate, and advanced textbook written in clear, plain English. Each bite-sized “teach yourself” chapter will be packed with only the most important Spanish grammar, verbs, and vocabulary. Also, each chapter will have practice worksheets to solidify the material.
What will be different about this book from other Spanish learning materials? No vosotros conjugations, no 'parroting' phrases, no useless activities, no messy formats, no rarely used vocabulary, no outdated images, no unrealistic promises.
Each book will be black and white, spiral bound, with a plastic cover and backing. I estimate that the book will be 150 pages front and back. Initially, I would like to print 50 copies of the book and this equates to a $7 printing cost per book ($350).
I am hoping for a total pledge of $500 in order to fulfill all rewards and shipping as well as have books left over for the first batch of sales via the official website.
I can't wait to see this project come to life. The website is ready, the book is almost done and once the printing is complete, 'Spanish Is Your Amigo' will make learning Spanish extremely accessible to the average person.
Thanks so much for reading and I appreciate your support!
Beyond my wildest dreams! :)
