Today it's more important than ever for English-speakers to have some working knowledge of Spanish. In this book, author William Harvey shows that you learn Spanish most easily when you understand the "message"—not when you memorize grammar rules. This informal self-teaching course is for you if you lack the time or patience for traditional language training. You'll learn key Spanish phrases and get tips that will help you comprehend the spoken language. You'll also learn to pronounce words and phrases so that a Latin-American can understand you.

This book takes a very nontext book approach to Spanish. The book and the audio CDs can be used together or separately. Its a very laid back way to learn travel Spanish. Read full review
