Why did you write a textbook?

Formal classes provide me with a strong grammatical foundation. This is necessary in order to express your own ideas in another language. But at times, my classes were anything but simple. I always wished there was a clearer, quicker method. I wanted lessons to be taught in plain English.

Instead, words like “pluperfect” confused me. I wanted only the necessary lessons, vocabulary and practice condensed into one textbook. Instead, the books were cluttered. So I used to create my own materials.

I learned that having the right materials in front of you can make all the difference. In an effort to teach Spanish in the easiest way, I created the simplest “teach yourself” textbook.
