About the Author
Audrey Yates Irias started learning Spanish at age 10 in a FLEX program in her elementary school, because her aunt lived in Puerto Rico. She was so enamored with learning languages that she dove in head first, and took multiple years of Spanish and French in high school. Following her passion, she was a double major in Spanish and French Education and a TESOL minor, at Illinois State University—during which time she studied in Spain and France. She taught for 11 years in both traditional as well as virtual classrooms. In 2016, she earned her master’s in translation and interpreting from the University of Illinois.
Audrey enjoys spending time with her daughter, dancing, teaching students one-on-one, and developing curriculum that benefits students and teachers of World Languages.

Staff's Response: Hello Tere,
At this moment, per a low demand, we don't have an English version available. If we have enough people request, the author will translate it.

Staff's Response: Hello Justin,
I apologize that you feel that way. I would like to take a moment to guide your attention to the two-sided bookmarks that are included--one with the Day of the Dead comments mentioned in the book and another one with the most common conjugated verbs defined, as they appear in the book, not infinitives. We were hoping treating the grammar as vocabulary in this instance would allow you to not focus on teaching the grammar, but the content. Does that help? If you feel that you would like to return it, we do offer a 100% money back guarantee please let our Customer Service know.
