By Eric Richards
With the help of his new friends – Adela, Elena and Félix – Antonio has settled into his new school. He has an exciting week ahead of him. He is going to his first party and his brother is coming to visit.
As Antonio receives an unexpected text message, he tells himself that it is innocent – but Antonio is nervous. Will Antonio’s response lead to trouble among his new friends and spoil the week ahead? As their relationships continue to develop and deepen, these four friends are confronted with challenging conversations and unforeseen complications.
For educators: Nuevas conversaciones, nuevas complicaciones is a chapter book for beginning language learners. It incorporates thematic vocabulary, embedded elements and dialogue. It is written so that beginning language students can identify with themes and characters as they grow and develop. The book can be effectively implemented with a variety of teaching styles, including: traditional, communicative, thematic, TPRS, CI and others. It is also designed to help facilitate read-alouds, sustained silent readings, student acting, personalization, interaction and more. There are two sections at the end of the book. One section is general comprehension questions over the chapters. The other section is individualized questions designed to give students more practice (with the structures and vocabulary) by allowing the student to engage and respond in a personalized manner. This section is easily expandable and lends itself well for PQA sessions, class discussions and personalization in the classroom.
