Product Overview

(back cover)
Travelers who speak some Spanish, as well as Spanish language students, know how important it is to get past the slang barrier. This book helps them do exactly that. It teaches Spanish idioms and demonstrates how people of different regions and social classes actually use them in normal conversation.
  • More than 4,000 words and colloquial expressions--many not found in standard English-Spanish dictionaries--are listed alphabetically with definitions.
  • Each entry includes a phrase or short sentence demonstrating how the term is used in a conversational context.
  • Regional designations tell you where each entry is most commonly used--in Latin America or in Spain
    As a comprehensive summary of modern Spanish idiomatic usage, this book includes some entries generally considered vulgar. Some readers might find them offensive.
