Description

Spanish Phrasebook This is an essential accessory for travellers of all ages. The main section of the book consists of phrases and sentences organised in a way which will make it easy for you to select the items which will say what YOU want to say. The pronunciation guide at the start of the book will help you get the general rules and all the Spanish words in the book have an anglicised version to help you with the specifics. There are useful everyday phrases which you can use in a variety of situations, followed by sections which give you all the vocabulary you might need in particular circumstances, such as accommodation, eating and drinking and getting around. Throughout there are useful tips for the traveller, to help you get the most out of your trip. Finally, there is an alphabetical dictionary, so you can look up words quickly, as and when the need arises. One-Day Spanish This one-day course is specifically written for the holiday maker for whom a short holiday does not justify a complete language course. It comes on one 75-minute CD and teaches only basic, core words, as few as the holiday maker can get away with, and a few useful phrases, which will be supported by body language. It comes with an 8-page booklet which simply lists the words and phrases taught on the recording - no pronunciation guide, no grammar summary, just a written record of what has been learned. The action takes place during a flight from London to Spain. Following a challenge from the passenger in the next seat to her, Elisabeth Smith teaches him enough Spanish to be able to get around on his holiday. The dialogue is broken up by in-flight announcements, meals and drinks being served and even some turbulence. The course is fast and light-hearted and reflects the anticipation and excitement of going on holiday.show more
