You'll find this and much more in Editora Delearte's Spanish readers. The stories are built through short chapters that include everyday dialogues, plenty of vocabulary and straightforward grammar comprehensible for pre intermediate level learners.
But..is this book for me?
"Martes 13" for Pre Intermediate students (level A2, also known as Plataforma in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) is the 3rd book of Editora Delearte's Spanish readers series "Based on true urban legends". You need to know Present Simple (regular and irregular verbs), immediate future (as in “I am going to travel= voy a viajar), gerund and basic vocabulary. We've translated some words and expressions from the Argentinian Spanish to English (and Portuguese) that you probably won’t find in a dictionary but if you have any doubts regarding a word you don’t understand (and this has not been translated), you can look it up in a free Spanish- English dictionary available for download (in our books, you'll find a short guide to download it in your device).
Verónica Soto is a regular persona with a regular life. But on a Tuesday 13th, considered a day of bad luck in the Hispanic culture, she starts the day putting her left foot on the floor first which is another bad luck sign. From that moment until the end of the day, Verónica will try to go through a series of bad luck events that will test her patience and her spirit. In this fun story, Verónica will experiment all the superstitions around Tuesday 13th, learning that they may be more than superstitions.
From Chapter I
"En el mundo hispano, los martes 13 son días de mala suerte [...]
Los martes 13 no hay que:
*Levantarse con el pie izquierdo.
*Viajar en barco.
*Salir de casa.
Esas son las reglas.
Cuentan las personas que a veces, hay personas que olvidan las reglas [...]"
