The book lists phrases, yes, phrases...nothing more.
For example, after you say, what time do you open, in Spanish, you will have to search next thing to say digging entire book.
Again, it only lists simple phrases by the category.
I'm a bit disappointed by the five star rating......
Everyone has to start somewhere, and this book is a good place for beginning students of the Spanish language to start. This slender volume provides a lot of expressions that you can readily use as you begin to interact with Spanish-speakers.
In the initial stages of language study, it is often difficult to extract the functional sentences you need out of a textbook or more extensive course. This book is just the remedy you need for that problem. It is also a bargain for the price!
English: "I want to leave these packages for a while" =
Spanish: "Quiero dejar estos paquetes un rato."
Their way to pronounce this is: "KYAY-ro day-HAHR ESS-tohss pah-KAY-tess oon RRAH-toh"
I know how to pronounce things well after over a year of learning spanish...Even looking over the small pronunciation guide in Madrigal's Magic Key to spanish will help a lot more with pronunciation. That sentence is more like "KYEH-roh deh-HAR ESS-tohs pah-KEH-tess oon RRAH-toh"
Anyway, still there are a lot of useful phrases and people will still probably understand some things, even using the book alone. My spanish boyfriend does think some people actually do only rely on books like these for pronunciation because he says he's heard tourists from America speak similarly to this and that it sounds weird. Even though it's obviously best to read a pronunciation guide AND hearing things being said, if you are only reading how to do it, the book could be a lot more helpful and improved.
If you're seeking to learn Spanish as a second language, this book is highly recommended. Persons who have travelled to Spanish-speaking countries have found this book to be quite rewarding in their interactions at the bank, restaurant, hotel and other places they visit. This book also plays an essential role in building your vocabulary skills quickly and efficiently. Spanish beginners and those without prior knowledge of the Spanish language would find this book quite useful in developing their Spanish language skills. The book is conveniently organized for beginners to study topics that they desire. It also relieves the stress of being confined to moving from chapter to chapter in a sequential manner.
Some other products that I recommend for Spanish language learners are Visual Link Spanish. A great learning Spanish product for visual learnes like myself.Read more ›
