Perdidos en la traducción Level 1 Reader by Bryan Kandel
Amy does not understand why she needs to study Spanish. She lives in Ohio, where everyone she knows speaks English. She does not pay attention in her Spanish class, never does her homework, copies tests from other classmates, and uses her cell phone to translate.
Samuel does not understand why he needs to learn English. He lives in Mexico, and plans to spend the rest of his life playing soccer in Spain. His daydreams distract him from English class every day. Why would he need to know another language?
An unexpected encounter in an airport changes the perspectives of Amy and Samuel. Suddenly, they both see a reason to speak a different language but lack the necessary skills. Can they rely on new technology to express their true feelings, or will their future be forever lost in translation?
This lighthearted and fun novel of only 5,000 words is great for beginning Spanish students and engaging to all Spanish readers.
