With the translation on the same page, learners can effortlessly learn what any unfamiliar words mean.

Listen to the audio tracks that should always accompany a bilingual graded book to learn how words are said and to improve your overall ability to speak the new language.

You can control the playing speed by decreasing or increasing the speed value on the button of the VLC media player's interface.
