When we talk about SLA (second language acquisition) we all agree that for real communication to happen there must be a message that is compelling to all interlocutors.
Many books for Spanish as a second language class have been written with special emphasis on the way the second language is used. Authors make sure to use a limited number of “new words” and a fair number of cognates to aid student understanding. This is a valid strategy, however in the vast majority of times literary quality is compromised as well as the possibility of delivering a compelling message that teaches something to our students.
However, not all is lost since there are authors like Margarita Pérez García, originally from Venezuela and a Spanish teacher as a second language in Australia, who has managed to combine her knowledge of the Spanish language with her immense literary creativity.
Today I want to present to you the latest book by Margarita Pérez: Mosca en Leche. This book is suitable for Novice Mid or Level 2 and up readers. Mosca en Leche is the story of a fly that could well be any of us. In life we find ourselves in various situations and we are not always comfortable in them. Through her main character Pata Sucia, Margarita allows us to reflect on our decisions, our goals in life and especially on our dreams.
Mosca en leche is a story for beginning students that delivers a valid message for any level. You can find all the books written by Margarita, as well as more titles written by Latin American authors in the Acento Latino catalog.
