5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Spanish Phrase Book is Invaluable June 16, 2000
By A Customer
This book was invaluable on my recent family vacation to Zihuatanejo, Mexico! Spanish phrases are categorized according to the situation in which you will need them; for example, restaurants, banks, stores, post offices, etc. The pronunication keys were great. We ordered food, found an Internet cafe and a bank, and were able to get more toilet paper from the non-English-speaking hotel desk clerk at 10:30 p.m. I don't know what we would have done without it!

If you are intending to learn any new language, I first recommned that you read How To Learn Any Language. In that book, you'll find a recommendation to get a phrase book. The purpose of the phrase book is to give you prior practice in real-life situations. When you get a chance to memorize phrases ahead of time, that is the BEST way to use a phrase book. Your grammar book, and sometimes even your course, does not give you the "Which room is mine?" kind of phrases. Yes, you will need to flip through the book to find responses or the next question on different topic, but that is only if you do not practice a bit ahead of time.

This is a great phrasebook and is a great value!

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn Spanish on the ... June 2, 2003
You can't beat this book - for the price and the small, yet concise and relevant content. Learn how to tell time, order food, go through customs, as well as greetings and social conversations just to name a few. Especially helpful are the pronunciation guides listed below each phrase. Muy bueno for the traveler or beginner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It but Don't Love It Alone March 26, 2006
By Robert
I give this handy little book a whopping five stars. I love the size of Easy Spanish Phrase Book and its useful sentences.

Very portable and loaded with common everyday phrases.

Here's a tip.

I am using my Easy Spanish Phrase Book with a CD course entitled Behind the Wheel Spanish. I just finished level 1 and 2 and will soon move on to level 3.

It's amazing how important these phrases are and how they continually pop up in everyday conversation and how much more effective they are when you can hear them

on the CD.

Naturally, your choice for sentence formation is limited if you just stick to Easy Spanish Phrase Book. There's only so much you can fit into this tiny book.

That's why I went with a full CD course and full text like Behind the Wheel Spanish.

But when I am pressed for time and space, all I take along is Easy Spanish Phrase Book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only for beginners June 28, 2006
Everything in this book is what you would already know after a Spanish I class. Any new vocabulary words could easily be picked up elsewhere. As far as the phrases go, some of them could come across as rude if not used correctly. For example, the book often uses "Quiero" as "I want" when asking for something, when "Quisiera = I would like" would be more polite. "Traigame una frazada = Bring me a blanket" should be replaced with "Me puede traer una frazada, por favor?" Don't waste your time with this book unless you're an absolute beginner, and even then I would suggest something else.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT for Central America October 26, 2010
By Marcus
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is definitely not for Costa Rican Spanish! There is a 1950's flavor to the phrases - that is, a rudeness and big-city arrogance to the phrases that reminds me of the way people spoke to each other as is the movie THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL. If you used the phrases in this book in the small towns here in Costa Rica the locals would be insulted. Thsi book was originally written in 1954 and it shows. It might be OK in Spain but not here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent source for beginners! January 18, 2005
my husband teaches spanish to high school students and to an adult class. He has found that this little book is extremely useful to both groups. We have ordered 100 of these books at the present; to give to the students and they love them.

He strongly reccomends this book for all interested in learning spanish.
