He leído Cornelia de Mima Maxey. El libro es una edición en PDF de un texto latino de fácil traducción y lectura facilitado por la Universidad de Chicago. Aprender vocabulario de una lengua clásica o moderna a partir de la lectura es una idea buenísima. Al igual que en el libro Julia de Reed, este documento dispone de glosario a modo de apéndice en las páginas últimas del libro. El tamaño de letra es grande. Contiene ilustraciones. Se trata de una versión bilingüe en latín e inglés

[Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poet]

I have found an interesting page on poetry which I want to keep here in my blog. I have also got a 5 page document glossary included in #mypublicfiles at @dropbox.

How to read a reader

17 December 2015



  1. get the reader and a dictionary with you (smartphones are also welcome)

  2. prepare a bloc or notepad, a pencil to underline words you don ́t know
  3. relax and start by having a look at the title and the author of the reader
  4. copy the tittle and the author in your bloc
  1. read some information about the author and the story (@Wikipedia or any other Encyclopedia)
  2. do not try to read 40 pages in a day, but read little by little, chapter after chapter, page after page. Make a note of what you read [copy page number and one or two ideas]
  3. it is impossible to read a book without looking up for the meanings of unknown words (verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, connectors). YOU WILL HAVE TO USE A DICTIONARY!
  4. most readers provide a glossary of words (mini-dictionary of difficult expressions) Look for that glossary!
  5. understand what you read
  6. keep a diary of your reading in order to remember the plot of the story.
  7. focus on grammar and vocabulary
  8. enjoy your readings

Glossary of words for elementary students based on “the threshold level”

25 July 2014

twitter: @eugenio_fouz


On this occasion the glossary of words is based on an old book edited by the Council of Europe around the 1976. These wordlists provide students with basic vocabulary which, of course, will be helpful. See an extract here. Click on the link to @dropbox in case you would like to download the whole paper. The appearance of the lists looks nice. All words together and framed in boxes so you can mark the ones you have learned. I strongly recommend you to download the public files 🙂
