Book review: Spanish To Go
Don’t feel like the proverbial ‘idiot abroad’ this summer with two handy guides to help you speak the lingo.
Concise and yet informative, small in size but big on practicality, Spanish To Go and its series partner French To Go contain a weekend’s worth of essential words and phrases to steer you through the most basic enquiries, meetings and greetings.
The clever, easy-to-use lay-out helps you to find words at a glance and the book is small enough to be slipped into pockets or handbags for use at any moment when you are on the move.
And don’t worry about your accent! The guide to clear and precise pronunciation has been devised to simplify the foreign language and help you to produce more relaxed and flowing conversations with people you meet.
Using everyday Spanish and French for everyday scenarios, these ingenious little books are your passport to survival at the airport, in bars and restaurants, hotels or wherever your holiday takes you.
There are sections on travel, money, hotels, restaurants, sightseeing, shopping and meeting and greeting the locals.
So whether you are making a hotel reservation, finding your way to the beach or just chatting in bars or to shopkeepers, speaking Spanish or French has never been easier.
The perfect pocket-sized travelling companion…
