THE OXFORD SPANISH CARTOON-STRIP VOCABULARY BUILDER
This informative, colorful, and fun-to-use series of guides is perfect for anyone who wants to learn a second language quickly and easily. Each volume employs the amusing and always true-to-life cartoon strips of Claire Bretecher--an artist renowned in Europe for her witty and controversial cartoons--to not simply explain but illustrate the words and wording of a given foreign language in its common, everyday use. While there are other cartoon dictionaries on the market, most of them provide only single cartoons. This attractive series, on the other hand, provides whole strips which tell a story and effectively bring context and other memorable features to one's learning. And only this series offers cartoons done in full color, and written by a popular cartoonist. These vocabulary-builders are the perfect starting place for people who want to begin, or else strengthen, their acquisition of French, German, or Spanish.
