Cool Kids Speak Spanish has been written with primary school aged children in mind by a qualified and experienced foreign languages teacher. This book may however also interest older children as it is filled full of fun worksheets, wonderful word-searches and lovely colouring pages. The topics covered in this book include fruit, birthdays, age, months of the year, numbers 11-20, pencil case and books, drinks and transport. This book follows on from book 1 as within many of the topics there is also a review of some general Spanish phrases, numbers 1 to 10 and the colours. Each topic begins with a page full of images and the Spanish words for the topic. Progression throughout each of the topics has been carefully planned as the activities practice only a few of the new words at any one time, and gradually introduce simple sentence structures. At the back of the book there is a useful Spanish English word list and also the answer section. Learning a new foreign language at an early age can be an enjoyable and useful experience, and this book would be a great way for children of any age to learn Spanish.
