Forget about boring textbooks.

Improve your English using real-life stories and conversation!

I wrote this 100-page book for English Language Learners who enjoy travel and hiking, or anyone interested in walking at least 100 km to Santiago to receive a Compostela, or certificate of completion. It’s also a real-life story of personal growth and transition after overcoming anxiety and depression.

Profits from the sale of the book will be donated to organizations working to educate people of all ages about mental health and emotional resiliency.

The Appendix includes English and Spanish glossaries.

You can buy the paperback and ebook on Amazon or wherever books are sold. A pdf version of the book and the companion workbook are available on Gumroad.

Here’s what Tetiana Bilokin, an English teacher from Ukraine said about these materials:

It was written with English learners in mind, and will be great for anyone who wants to improve their English, loves reading personal stories, and is interested in The Camino de Santiago. ⁠

✔It’s easy to read from the language standpoint. ⁠
✔It’s an engaging personal story with flashbacks, insights and hopes laid out in a very relatable way.⁠
✔And it’s a good overview or introduction to Camino for anyone who is thinking of attempting it on their own.⁠

Kate recently released a digital workbook to accompany the paperback, with cool perks like a glossary and fillable speaking/journaling prompts, and the audio is upcoming. ⁠

Interested in learning Spanish?

If you are considering a walk on the Camino Portugués, Camino Frances, Camino Inglés, or any of the Camino segments in Spain, I highly recommended learning some Spanish.

I’m grateful to Maria Seco at Spanish for the Camino for her help with my book and also for helping to prepare me for my walk.

Combine her workbooks with a course or online lessons and you’ll have Spanish vocabulary and expressions specific to the Camino experience.

In my guest post, Conversations on the Camino, you can find a few helpful conversation starters in English and in Spanish.
