Latin American Spanish Phrase Bookby Lexus Limited (Compiler), Dorling Kindersley Publishing Staff
Whether you're trying to order dinner or get back to your hotel, you cannot make your way without knowing what to say, and the Eyewitness Travel Guide Phrase Books are the perfect guide for tongue-tied tourists. These compact, user-friendly books fit right into your pocket or purse, and meet the communications needs of the tourist and business traveler alike. Based on an innovative system of imitated pronunciation, phrases are organized into logical and practical divisions, including time; food and drink; air travel; bus, taxi, and subway information; shopping; health and medical care; and much more. Typical replies to questions you may be asked, as well as signs and instructions you're likely to see or hear, are also given. The guides also include a carefully selected mini-dictionary, and useful conversion tables translating distance, clothing sizes, and weight. From Mexico to Argentina, this insightful guide lists the local variations of commonly used Spanish words and phrases spoken throughout Latin America. If you happen to be searching for an inexpensive eatery in Mexico you'll want to ask for a "cocina econmica," but in Central America you'd want to go to a "fritanga" or a "pupuseria." No matter where you are throughout Latin America, this is the Spanish-language phrase book for you.
