South & Central American Spanish: Start the Conversation (30 Words: Language Guides for Travelers) Paperback – March 1, 2009
(30 WORDS is the) Best Proof That Good Things Come in Small Packages. Pocket cards providing quick reference for foreign words and phrases have been around for ages, but such cheat sheets are seldom hip and not all that modifiable once you buy them. Language translation cards by 30 WORDS may change that image.”
- Paul Eisenberg, Fox News
30 Words are snazzy, stain-proof, tear resistant, and waterproof passport sized guides that weigh less than 3 ounces but put over 800 key words and phrases right in your purse or pocket.”
- Wanda Mann, Editor, Black Dress Traveler
One thing that sets 30 Words’ guides apart from traditional book-style language guides is their unique layout. With a smart, accordion design, they’re easily expandable and collapsible at a moment’s notice. 30 Words’ ultra minimalist approach is too smart and well thought-out to leave it at home.”
- Mike Richards, Editor, Vagabondish.com
With this simple guide, not only are you greeting locals and ordering food, you are also telling the locals by your communication efforts that you value and respect their language, culture, and country enough to learn about them.”
- Miah Oren, Travel Writer, Dallas Chronicle
From the Back Cover
It would have been a good idea to negotiate the price of a llama before ascending to 8,000 feet. Now, resting high in the Andes, you face a difficult decision: To continue your journey you must either lighten your backpack, or empty your wallet. Open your feather-light 30 WORDS however, and new options emerge. Why not bargain for one day’s use of a mercurial llama, or ask a local about a shortcut? Whether you choose to push to the summit or return home, expand your possibilities with 30 WORDS.
