by Rev. Edmund Rotavista
This book can be of real and effective help while learning Spanish and English. You will become aware of this when you see yourself using words that are very similar, equal, or very close in both languages. They may not have the same pronunciation but are very close to each other in spelling. Those words in this position are called “cognates,” or “cognados,” and there are approximately ten thousand words within to build up your own vocabulary. The more words you memorize or make your own, the better and richer vocabulary you will have and a better, closer, and more satisfying relationship you will establish with your neighbors south of the border: Mexico and the rest of Latin America.
