bonito prettyIs Rambo neat or slightly nutty?He’s just a pretty piece of putty.Mnemonics is an age-old technique for remembering names, numbers, and many other things. In Spanish Memory Book, Junior Edition, William Harrison and Dorothy Welker offer original mnemonic rhymes appropriate in subject matter and skill level for junior high and high school students to help them acquire and remember Spanish vocabulary. Included are mnemonic jingles for around 700 of the 2,000 most commonly used Spanish words. Each jingle contains both the sound of the Spanish word (indicated by the underlined syllables) and its English meaning (the word or phrase in italics). The authors have also included a general pronunciation guide to Spanish vowels and consonants. This innovative approach, which the authors have used successfully with their own students, is simple, effective, and entertaining. In the words of one student, “This book teaches me not only Spanish words but English words as well.”
