Overview


Updated with new material, the third edition of Household Spanish presents an informal, user-friendly course for non-Spanish speakers who need to learn fundamental Spanish words and expressions in order to communicate effectively with Hispanic employees in the workplace or in the home. This edition continues keeping up with current social trends by taking into account the increasing frequency in which Anglos and Spanish-speakers converse, not only as employers and employees, but also as co-workers. Instead of teaching Spanish by emphasizing dry rules of grammar, author William Harvey presents dialogues that rely on frequently used words and phrases to teach informal, idiomatic conversational Spanish. Passages in the book recreate typical scenes that are likely to occur in the household or workplace.

Practical words, phrases and Spanish expressions are presented in this user-friendly book for English-speakers who have had no Spanish, but need to communicate with Latinos employed in the household. This is not a grammar book requiring heavy study, it's a communication aid, designed to be picked up and used with minimal preparation.
