The most enjoyable way to learn about an unfamiliar culture is through its stories-especially when they're told in two languages! This book introduces 40 stories from the Philippines through bilingual Tagalog and English texts presented on facing pages. Paired with cultural notes, vocabulary lists, exercises, comprehension questions and free online audio recordings, Tagalog Stories for Language Learners is an excellent resource for intermediate language learners. This compilation includes a mix of traditional folktales retold for a modern audience, as well as several well-known works of contemporary Philippine literature. Along the way, you will meet fabulous mythological characters like the Bagobo goddess Mebuyan and the shape-shifting Aswang. Other characters cope with day-to-day issues, such as the domestic worker who cannot find her keys and a beauty queen who leaves behind her comfortable city life in order to help peasants in the countryside. Four of the stories are by well-known Filipino writers and are presented in complete or partially condensed form. These include: Estrangheritis by Inigo Ed. Regalado (1907)-The writer is critical of Filipinos who exalt all things foreign while, in fact, benefitting from their own land but unappreciative of their national culture. Desire by Paz Latorena (1928)-The story of a Filipino woman who has to deal with the narrow-mindedness of a foreigner who is far more interested in her body than in her personality. Greta Garbo by Deogracia Rosaro (1930)-Monina, who looks like Greta Garbo, plans a weekend getaway with her beau, only to be left at the station waiting, and later discovers he has gone on a honeymoon! Maria Elena Paterno's Sampaguita (1991)-Two popular legends about the Sampaguita (Philippine jasmine flower) which touch on the themes of courage and forbidden love. Stories from different periods are presented so learners get a feel for authentic Filipino texts.

For students of Latin - even those at an advanced level - reading original works by Latin authors can be daunting. Students must remember a seemingly endless array of grammatical rules and vocabulary, and often the material to be translated seems dull and lengthy beyond endurance. Here P. L. Chambers overcomes these challenges through her engaging presentation of the writings of Pliny the Elder. Pliny the Elder (23-79 a.d.) was a military officer and imperial administrator of the early Roman Empire. His avid interest in natural phenomena led him to write the Natural Histories, an encyclopedic work encompassing subjects as diverse as astronomy, geography, biology, zoology, botany, medicine, and gemology. The passages from the Natural Histories included here for translation are enjoyable to read and revealing of what first-century Romans thought about their world. Accompanying the Latin texts are the following features: Quick grammatical reviews at the start of each chapter Examples from the Latin passages that demonstrate relevant grammatical topics Sentence exercises based on the original text End-of-chapter vocabulary lists specific to the chapter readings Grammatical tables at the end of the book for quick reference A glossary that includes basic vocabulary A teacher's key, available to instructors upon request Classroom-tested by the author, this appealing reader motivates students to continue their study of Latin and provides a welcome alternative for instructors seeking accessible textbooks for their students.
