Hi! I'm Gina


I think learning a new language should be fun!


Reading a story in the language you want to learn is a great way to familiarize yourself with using the language in a specific context. Looking at images that go with the text helps the brain make stronger connections with the words and their meanings.

Have fun reading this book and surprise yourself at the end when you understand the entire story.
