1. One of the truly easy Spanish books: “Stories in Spanish for Beginners” by Olly Richards

Let’s start with our colleague Olly’s book, “Stories in Spanish for Beginners” This book is perfect for those who are beginning to learn Spanish. Olly, like some members of the Spring Spanish team, is a polyglot.

This book is an excellent choice for beginners because at the end of each story, it highlights the chunks and palabras claves (keywords) that you should learn.
