Description

    • Imported from USA.

    Many language books are boring - this one is not. Written by a native English speaker who learned Spanish the hard way -
    by trying to talk to Spanish-speaking people - it offers English speakers with a basic knowledge of Spanish with
    hundreds of tips for using the language more fluently and colloquially, with fewer obvious 'gringo' errors. Writing with
    humour, common sense, and a minimum of jargon, Joseph Keenan covers everything from pronunciation, verb usage, and
    common grammatical mistakes to the subtleties of addressing other people, 'trickster' words that look alike in both
    languages, inadvertent obscenities, and intentional swearing. He guides readers through the set phrases and idiomatic
    expressions that pepper the native speaker's conversation and provides a valuable introduction to the most widely used
    Spanish slang. With this book, both students in school and adult learners who never want to see another classroom can
    rapidly improve their speaking ability. "Breaking Out of Beginner's Spanish" will be an essential aid in passing the
    supreme language test-communicating fluently with native speakers. Joseph J. Keenan is a journalist, editor, and
    environmentalist who has lived and worked in Mexico since 1984.
