2.0 out of 5 stars No Gracias for this non Spanish speaker, March 11, 2008
By  Kimmy in Valencia (Los Angeles, CA)

I am a fan of the Langenscheidt pocket dictionary series. The size is perfect for travel, as is the bendable plastic cover. I was torn between this book and the plain dictionary for a Central America trip. I have never taken any Spanish so I bought the phrasebook because it said it's a "Travel Dictionary and Grammer" book. Unfortunately, the format is clumsy to use. It is broken down into sections such as Food/Drinks; accommodations; travel; shopping etc. While it's a good idea, unforunately, it was not very practical. Also, the "dictionary" portion at the end of the book was not thought out well as some common words such as "seafood" and "shrimp" were missing. I did find it odd that other words that a traveler wouldn't really need seemed to be in there.

I would not recommend this book as a stand alone source if you are traveling. Instead, grab the pocket dictionary.
