Veracruz


Veracruz is a city on the Gulf of Mexico coast, in the state Veracruz in Mexico. The city, which is sometimes known as "Puerto de Veracruz" to distinguish from the state, was originally founded as a sea port by Hernán Cortés in 1519 during the early stages of his conquest of Mexico for Spain. The settelement was originally known as La Villa Rica de la Vera Cruz (meaning "The rich town of the true cross"), and even today, this name is still sometimes used.

As of the 2005 census, Veracruz had a population of 444,438 people living in the city itself, and 512,310 living in the municipality.

Product Description:
This is the second book in the series, and it’s as much fun to read as the first book. The series, Veracruz Spanish Memories Bilingual Reader Series, has grown out of my thirteen-year experience as owner and director of a Spanish immersion school far south in Mexico. If I were looking at learning Spanish only academically, I’d have to say that there are many excellent bilingual readers. But I look at learning Spanish as a human process (with a strong academic component), and I say that yes, they are good, but they aren’t human enough, happy or touching or interesting or heartwarming enough. This series takes blogs from our language school’s website, blogs written about little things that were fun, or sweet, or sometimes bittersweet that show the warmth and kindness and culture of the people of Veracruz. I’ve prepared the blogs in true Spanish (not textbook Spanish). The humor and subtlety of the blogs is captured in the Spanish. The translations are not word for word, but instead are idea for idea. You get to see how to really say it in Spanish instead of just talking in English using Spanish words. I’ve included lots of footnotes. You’ll find wonderful new vocabulary and new meaning for words you already know. I want everything to be as clear as can be. I want learning to be as easy as can be. While you’re enjoying fun reading in Spanish and checking it against the English, you’ll begin seeing the fullness and expressiveness of the language. Almost immediately this fullness and expressiveness will start being part of your written and spoken Spanish.

Product Description:
It's fun. Most bilingual readers, although they are very good, aren't much fun to read. In my Veracruz Spanish Memories Series I've set out to change all that. The tales are short; the topics either warm your heart or bring a smile to your lips. The Spanish is full and expressive. This isn't a book for beginners. It's great language development for intermediate and advanced students. In our blog for our Spanish immersion school in Veracruz, Mexico, my husband wrote about little, human, usually happy, often touching things we'd see as we were out and about the city. These short writings (many with pictures) are the basis of my book. They were written in a delightful, respectful style. The Spanish translations of these tales comes first. Each is written in Spanish that is equal in style to that of the English. You'll read Spanish the way a well-spoken native Spanish speaker would have written them. You'll get to experience the difference between a "schoolish, textbookish" translation, which these are not, and a full and true to the intent and feeling handling that is encountered in the translation of literary novels. To strengthen understanding and the educational value of the Spanish, there are lots of explanatory end notes. You'll have lots of "Oh that's how they say that" moments. Seeing how things are really said in Spanish will go a long way toward taking you from speaking student Spanish to truly speaking Spanish.
