I said good then I shall know the language when communicating.

This book will be a great help for anyone planing on going to Chile, and will be a hoot for anyone who's been there (esp. those who know Spanish).

This book will be a great help for anyone planing on going to Chile, and will be a hoot for anyone who's been there (esp. those who know Spanish). Having lived there, I wish I had this book before I went! I love this book.

We just took a trip to Chile last month and bought this book off Amazon and were SO glad to have it with us. We used it to learn "Chilean" spanish and it was very helpful. The phrases in the book are quite accurate, according to the locals, and they were surprised to see some of their everyday phrases in the book. I highly recommend it if you're going to visit or live in Chile and you need a jump start on their dialect of the language.

I spent hours with some chilenos discussing this book. They laughed and were amazed how the author captured the true meanings and nuances throughout this book. I recommend it to anyone traveling to Chile as a must!

This book is truly the language of the Chilean people. It's mainly slang, which makes it so fun. I have a friend in Santiago who said that it was truly slang. I said good then I shall know the language when communicating. However what is not in the book if you want real coffee not instant coffee in Chile you are to ask for cafe, cafe. Also 1 minute in the Chilean language, there is another term that is not in the book, it means it could be an hour. Just an FYI. I enjoyed the book as did my friend in Santiago, Chile........ when I purchased this.

So, when I moved to Chile to teach I was told that the slang down there made it difficult to follow their Spanish- I'm sorry, Chilean.

My advice: if you're headed down there for any extended period of time or even just to start conversations with Chileans, learn a few of these Chilenismos. Chileans love when you throw words like cachai around. I had this in my kindle everywhere I went and I slowly began to learn what the heck everyone was saying.

Overall, this book was very bakan!

Obviously not everything in this book is used but a lot of things in it are accurate. My friends here thought it was great and they use many of the words/phrases. Very useful to learn the language here!
