Whoever heard of curling up on a nice, soft, warm

couch to actually enjoy learning French or Spanish?!
These readers have -- Hear what they have to say:


THE TWISTED DOORS is a unique book aimed at upper beginning
and intermediate students. In fact, it is so unique... because it's a French-English or
Spanish-English bilingual book, grammar book, and audio book all rolled into one,”

recounts Laura K. Lawless, French About.com guide in her 5-STAR French review.
With teachers in mind, Laura placed THE TWISTED DOORS in the following categories:
Top Tools for Beginning French Students
Top Tools for Intermediate French Students
Top 10 French Audio Resources


Writes the Media Library of the Alliance Française de Washington, D.C.:
“This dual language mystery book with accompanying CD is ideal for students of French
to practice listening and reading skills while enjoying a story.”


As reported online in Education Week:
“Students learning French or Spanish can now delve into their chosen
language while being intrigued, and possibly frightened, at the same time...”


Gerald Erichsen, Spanish About.com guide:
“Who says learning a foreign language can't be fun?... Las puertas
retorcidas
is one of the most entertaining Spanish textbooks we've seen
in quite a while...Dior obviously believes that learning a foreign language
doesn't need to be boring, and she does a skillful job at keeping the story
frighteningly tense enough that language students will be drawn
into it rather than viewing it as merely another exercise.”
Gerald placed the book and audio CD in the following categories:
Top self-learning books and top instructional audio
Top instructional books for learning Spanish


Joseph Q. Daily, Fine Artist extraordinaire:
“I just wanted to join the list of people singing the praises of the Twisted Doors.
It is easily the best foreign language tool I have ever come across!”

Andrea Slaughter, Editor-in-chief of the past AFAC-Internet French Club:
“French teachers now have a brilliant tool... The Twisted Doors is engaging,
exciting... it is a MUST for any French language classroom.”

A complete review for teachers and students can be found here.


Professor L. Woodward (no relation to the editor), North Harris College, Houston, TX:
As an educator, I see your book as one of the absolute best language
learning tools I have ever seen.
It appeals to a wide audience
and is so well written and interesting.”
