37

But 30% or more of my language time ought to be devoted to the current language: Spanish. 

Getting back to the BookBox site, I see that it has 40 languages to choose from, about half of them Indian. Some, such as Japanese, only have one. But others have more. Spanish has 19.

Since each is 400-500 words long, they are ideal for repeating.


I feel that one can use authentic text at any level to gain exposure, but there’s less risk of frustration with simpler material meant for children. And I have always enjoyed children’s stories. Who needs the news?
