Product Description
Clear the confusion that deceptive cognates (words that appear the same or similar in two languages, but whose meanings are quite different) can create in vocabulary between the English and Spanish languages! From humorous aspects ("Do you have a tissue? I'm constipated." Translation: "I have a cold.") to serious aspects ("Doctor, I think my little boy is intoxicated." Translation: "I think my little boy is poisoned."), this book is essential for Spanish speakers learning English, English speakers learning Spanish, and teachers of either language! Each unit opens with an illustrated, lively glossary, preceded by several interactive exercises that help learners internalize the correct uses of these tricky words. There are over 100 easy-to-understand explanations and clear examples. If you want éxito in learning English or Spanish (not exit, but success), this is the book for you!
