Short Stories to Learn Spanish

Reading is the key to improving your comprehension skills, and helps you formulate better sentences.

But when you’re still a beginner or intermediate-level learner, it can be difficult to find proper materials to practice reading. You will also need to consult a dictionary while you’re reading, and without an audio accompaniment, you will find it difficult to learn new words and how they’re pronounced by native speakers.

An Effective Way to Improve Your Spanish Reading and Listening Comprehension Skills

For new Spanish-learners, reading and listening to short stories can be a fun and painless way to learn Spanish. Short stories will introduce you to new vocabulary and sentence structures, while the accompanying audio material will help you with listening comprehension.

Through learning in this way, you will be able to:

  • Improve your Spanish without the monotonous chore of memorizing grammar rules.
  • Learn new vocabulary that you can immediately put to use in everyday life.
  • Practice your listening skills by listening to a native Spanish-speaker narrating the stories.

Learn Spanish with 11 Fun Stories with Everyday Themes

No Dictionary Necessary

Improve Your Listening Skills in Spanish

Here’s What Our Customers Have to Say

“I got this book as a refresher for my Spanish. I very much like how you have the English words after the Spanish words; that way you know what you are referring to. It’s a great beginners’ book without being too childish, as stated in the beginning of this book. Thanks for a great e-book that I can go back to. Look forward to more in the future.”

– Anita Jiménez on Amazon

“I bought this book because I am currently living in Spain and NEED to improve my Spanish skills! I like how this book has simple stories that aren’t for little kids but also aren’t so difficult that I am using Google Translate for every other word. I’ve tried reading Harry Potter in Spanish but I don’t think I will really need to know how to say “butterbeer” or any of the spells in my day-to-day life. I like how this book provides some real word situations like going to the movies or spending time with family. The quizzes at the end of the stories help check my comprehension as well.” 

– Hilary Hancock on Amazon

“I wanted to rekindle my Spanish skills after only a few years of high school Spanish. I looked into several books and chose this one. I feel anyone with a small background in Spanish would benefit from the layout of the book. Short stories make learning easy and fun. The short quizzes at the end of each story are very helpful in making the lesson stick in the mind. The best part of this book is the audio. It can be used on many devices and the instructions are easy to understand.”

Nikki on Amazon

  4. Renata Rocha

    I’ve studied Spanish during one semester, and I found this audiobook a practical way to enhance my vocabulary and review some of the things I’ve already learned. The PDF version was also really helpful. I especially recommend it for someone who wants to have a general idea of the language.

  5. Lizandra

    The book Spanish Short Stories for Begginers Volume 1 is an excellent book for those who are starting to learn the Spanish language. There are about 10 stories that show examples of everyday life with easy and dynamic content to learn. The audio files also help a lot in the learning process, since they stimulate the hearing and the custom to the sound of the Spanish spoken by a native. I recommend this book for those people who need to immerse themselves in the language and want to learn in an easy and dynamic way

  6. janetcook89

    These short stories helped me improve my Spanish listening and writing skills. Once I understood the format of the audiobooks, the vocabulary reviews were very helpful. I am a beginner at the Spanish language and could understand most of the stories. It’s easier to dissect the words in these shorter stories. Great stories as well. This really improved my verb conjugation and broadened my vocabulary.

  7. Bruna

    It is a very good book for beginners, because it tells stories that depict different realities of everyday life and still has excellent audios accompanying the book, allowing us to better understand some particular characteristics of the language besides a great translation of vocabulary into English.

  8. lasguking

  9. kenzie

    I bought Spanish Short Stories for Beginners to help my younger brother practice Spanish. We have really enjoyed listening to the audiobook and reading the stories together. It has helped both of us improve our Spanish!

  10. qgonza

    The book is a good refresher on vocab and grammar for people that have some knowledge of the Spanish language already, and a good start for people trying to learn the language. I like the small quizzes at the end of each story and their summaries, in English. I just hope that the book would have more pictures and illustrations to make the stories more interesting and colorful to the see and read specially for children that are just starting to learn Spanish.

  11. Lunara

    It has interesting and surprising stories. It’s great to catch the attention of those who are learning.

  12. Mayce

    The stories were actually interesting, but simple enough that a beginner like me could follow along.
