Product Description

The perfect Spanish phrase book for when you want to know just enough to enjoy yourself abroad

. .

Your ideal companion while traveling in Spanish-speaking countries--especially if you are a first-timer with little or no foreign language experience--this handy, pocket-size guide packs all the punch of bigger references in a much more concise, user-friendly format. While Just Enough Spanish covers all the standard phrase book topics--including everything from days, months, currencies, and clothing sizes to food, shelter, and medical assistance--its quick-reference format and at-a-glance QAndA examples make it easier than ever to find just the right word or phrase for just about every occasion.

. .

This second edition is thoroughly revised and now includes currency updates and coverage of the latest changes in travel--such as using ATMs for currency exchanges.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars - Just Enough Spanish
For the most part, this book provided me with what I was looking for, but could have had a little more information. Overall, it is helpful in learning some very basic words to begin to learn a little Spanish, but will need more in order to converse with my Spanish-speaking fellow employees. Great starter book, especially for travelers.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Rick Steve's Spain 2007
This was an incredible book for visiting Spain. We should have used it for booking hotels, but didn't buy it until the last minute. But we did use it for sights, meals, getting around, etc. and it was fabulous.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - All you need is this book
To learn another language, you only need the basics and then you need to practice with native speakers. There is no other way to learn. This is the nicest and one of the best laid out books I have seen and you can also purchase the other books in this series to learn those languages as the layout of the various books are exactly the same.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Nice, well-organized phrasebook
If you're learning another language, I highly recommend you read How to Learn Any Language first. Once you've done that, you'll see that a book like this is exactly what he recommends for developing proficiency in Spanish.
This book is laid out nicely for finding sections of phrases. If you're about to go into your hotel, check some of the phrases under Accomodations first. If you're about to eat, test yourself on some phrases under Eating and Drinking Out.

The phrases and vocabulary in this little book are accurate, too. They even include a pronunciation guide (Abla oosted in-gles?) of the sort that's moderately understandable.

It's a good buy.
