I like this book for learning some quick phrases but, it's still lacking some important words/phrases, such as 'I am at...' and it could use a color coding as well for the different sections to make them easier to find. It would also be nice if it included more of the slang that is used a lot, like 'bruja', especially in Venezuela and certain other parts of Central/South America. I like that there is a dictionary at the back of it but, it could include more words and the phonetic spellings for each one as some are not easily pronounced correctly for those who have never spoken the language before. I still am looking for the definition of 'Ã¿Â¡Que tenga un buen viaje!' for example as well as the proper pronounciation of a couple of the words. I find it easier to use books like this to learn the language than to use a tape or any of the other study materials I have found thus far for learning the language, especially with Spanish where just the way you would say the sentence in English is not how you would say it in Spanish which confuses me a lot. Now if someone only made something like this book in an .h264 MP4 video that can be played back on many cell phones/iPods/etc that put the sentence on the screen with the translation and someone saying it for you too, that would definitely get my money as I find that way the easiest to learn of all and combine it with a book like this.
