EXCELLENT! SAME CATEGORIES AS BEHIND THE WHEEL SPANISH!!
December 11, 2008
Easy Spanish Phrase Book is one of the easiest ways I know of to learn
simple, yet useful phrases in Spanish. The price is outrageously cheap, the
size makes it totally portable, and the categories it includes, such as
restaurants, transportation, etc ... are indispensable.
I highly recommend you not stop with Easy Spanish, but rather go ahead and
buy Behind the Wheel Spanish 8 CD and book Behind the Wheel - Spanish 1
followed by the intermediate level Behind the Wheel Spanish 2 Behind the
Wheel - Spanish 2.
These make an excellent combination with Easy Spanish Phrase Book.
Good Little Phrase Book

The Easy Spanish Phrase Book was helpful for learning key phrases to help
one communicate with Spanish speaking persons. It was a bargain for what it
was intended to do. It was not, however, a guide for general conversation or
idententifing specific words and was limited to set phrases. For this
purpose, it was set up well with categories listed in a simple format.

strange and outdated

||J. M. Bowen-Shauver
This book was certainly cheap and it is certainly easy to carry. But it
was also almost entirely useless. I know only a little Spanish, but enough
that this book was not useful to me, because I already knew how to say
anything in it that was meaningful to our travels. My husband, on the
contrary, knows almost no Spanish. When attempting to shop on his own, he
discovered that this book will tell you how to buy gold cufflinks, scarves,
gloves, and almost every item of apparel except shirts and pants. It
contains a very strange collection of phrases and does not appear to have
been updated since its first publication in the 50s. Not useful if you want
to ask the location of an internet cafe.
Waste of money

Very small book that gives you such bare essentials that you really get
nothing at all. If you have to go to Mexico tonight and this was the only
book you had then maybe take it because its better than zilch.
Better with Behind the Wheel Spanish 8 CDs & Book
October 7, 2008
||Claudia Freeman "Language
No question that Easy Spanish Phrase Book is an inexpensive and relevant
way to learn useful basic Spanish phrases. The problem is that most of these
phrases are canned and not original.
I recommend you use this handy little booklet along with Macmillan Audio's
Behind the Wheel Spanish 8 CDs and book. Behind the Wheel - Spanish 1
(Behind the Wheel) which will teach you how to create your own sentences.
Great combo for the money!
Not as good as I thought

I paid very little for this booklet. Its vocabulary its a bit short
(among others; soda/refreshment is not there) Some translations could be
better (It's raining, should be; Esta lloviendo, instead of; Llueve) Some
times they translate to English using "One" instead of using "A"... These
situations are few. To be a traveler's booklet it can help you very well in
many situations. The alphabet pronunciation section is very helpful and each
word has a pronunciation spelling right under it that is great.

Spanish Made Easy for someone who can't speak too well
September 8, 2008
||Damian O. Plaza "Omen
I actually do speak well in spanish, but I needed a few brush ups. I
absolutely think this is the easiest and most user friendly book out there.
My co workers always come in to use it. If you want to have something handy
in case your stuck with your spanish than this is the one. Very user
friendly and easy to understand.
