My 11-year-old grandson, for whom I bought this book, usually greets me now with several phrases that he has learned from it. This book has been a significant catalyst in his learning the basic, everyday phrases. No doubt he'll be a better conversationalist when he encounters his Spanish-speaking friends and relatives.
BOTTOM LINE: If you're looking for a simple, easy method of learning basic lines that will allow you to converse in Spanish on an elementary level, this book will be of great help. It certainly was for my grandson.
- cheapest phrasebook as of 2013 done by an established publisher
- it has transliterations with stress (I wouldn't expect otherwise from a phrasebook though)
- written in 1994 and it shows. How about sending a telegram in Spanish ? Not sure what it is ?
Then read on this book - it will explain how to send a telegram, buy a reel for your camera ,there is no such thing called Internet, you get the idea...
- At the end there is an index, I guess, or hope... maybe in the printed edition, but in Kindle one there is an index that does nothing but lists all the words/phrases without linking back to their meaning.
So why, you may ask, 4 stars? The price (2$)actually won, but again - I am not using it to prepare for a trip, just learning Spanish.
The book is dated, with one section called "At the Telegraph Office". Some of the pronunciations are a little off and some of the phrases seem rude by current standards. Still, for the price you'll learn some words and phrases and see some conjugation forms. So as part of your Spanish studies it may be worth having in your library.
