How can books help us improve our language?

The benefits of reading are many, for the health of our brain and to improve our quality of life in general. Because apart from being great entertainment in which we can spend several hours a day, we exercise our memory, reduce stress, improve our mood, use imagination, increase our culture and increase our vocabulary.

And that is why, they help us to enrich our vocabulary, so they are a perfect complement to learning a new language. Reading a book in another language will not only help us improve our vocabulary, we will also improve our grammar, written expression and reading comprehension. It is also a great way to get to know new cultures.

The best method to learn a new language, like Spanish, is with a private teacher. In the same way, if we want to read a book in a language that we do not master, it is not worth any book that we can buy or that they lend us. We have to be advised by an expert.

Our Spanish teachers offer our students the books in Spanish that best suit their level, tastes and age. But if you are reading this blog and you are not yet a student of Interigual, do not worry, all is not lost. Below we show you a list with a selection of novels in Spanish classified by levels.
