Book Summary: The Comparative Vocabulary Study Guide, Spanish to English to Portuguese, highlights over 5,000 selected Spanish words that have either the same spelling and meaning as their English and Portuguese counterparts or contain easily recognizable English and Portuguese meanings.
This guide jump-starts the student into a knowledge of Spanish or English or Portuguese, or all three, by concentrating on easily recognizable words common to these languages. It teaches a basic vocabulary by word association.
This guide is designed after the “vocabulary first” method of language instruction as advocated by the author. The student then is taught how to structure a particular vocabulary into meaningful sentences and concepts.
