Delightful engaging illustrations of everyday words. Simple pronunciation of objects and concepts makes learning easy and fun. Help build vocabulary word recognition memory and confidence.


The New Spanish Table Von Bremzen is in love with the gastronomic delights of Spain. Several of the recipes are for dishes you'd expect to find in a volume of this size—sangria, gazpacho and a multitude of tapas—but there are many welcome surprises: Eggs over Smoky Bread Hash, Coca (Spanish-Mediterranean pizza) with Candied Red Peppers, and Rice Pudding Ice Cream.

Tapas: The Little Dishes of Spain In chapters such as Tapas in Sauce; Cold Tapas; and Tapas with Bread or Pastry, Casas provides a definitive selection of the traditional Spanish bar food--dishes to pass out at a gathering, to serve on a buffet, or to make a party of. Readers wishing an introduction to this versatile food, and the culinary culture in which it thrives, will want this bestselling book.


Art of Segovia by Andres Segovia Segovia single-handedly put the instrument on the map by making classical guitar concerts popular events, broadening Andalusia culture and the instrument's repertory through commissions and transcriptions, and convincing even doubters that it could be a vehicle for serious music.

Best of Gypsy Flamenco Andalusia This is true Gypsy Flamenco from the roots. Dazzling guitar playing, rythmic clapping and soulfull singing comprise both cds. There are absolutely no "new flamenco" tracks at all. Everything heard is felt, not passed thru your ears like "nouveau flamenco" music is today. A must buy for the flamenco afficionado listener.


Tales of the Alhambra Washington Irving, a North American diplomat, historian and traveller, lived for some time in the very Alhambra itself. His book, published for the first time in 1832, was immediately translated into many languages and attracted to Granada pilgrims from every latitude.
