Overview

Put away your textbook and learn how to really speak Spanish Among Amigos

Textbook Spanish has its place--in the classroom. If you want to communicate with real people, however, it's time to leave the stilted dialogues and formal syntax behind. Instead, flip open Spanish Among Amigos and start hanging out with two native Spanish speakers with attitude, Pepa and Pili. These Spanish gals will make you smile, chuckle, raise your eyebrows, and--most important of all--learn to speak Spanish naturally.

With twenty-one short, easily digestible units, this hands-on fluency builder introduces you to everyday Spanish in a conversational context. This doesn't mean you'll be inundated with idioms and slang; rather, you'll be immersed in dialogues that feel so spontaneous you'll swear you're eavesdropping. At the same time, you'll pick up common words and expressions related to a broad range of true-to-life topics. In these pages you'll:

  • Immerse yourself in realistic conversations on everything from love and gossip to shopping and work
  • Gain insight into the nuances of verbal exchanges between Spanish speakers
  • Determine meaning through context rather than direct translation
  • Assess your comprehension with short quizzes and fill-in-the-blank exercises
  • Recognize and correct common beginners' mistakes as illustrated in dialogues with Pepa and Pili's American friend, Tom

For those moments when context isn't enough, a glossary, an answer key, and English translations of the dialogues are all available at the end of the book. Both newcomers and fluent speakers--anyone ready to break free from the constraints of classroom language learning--will appreciate these entertaining, lighthearted lessons in how Spanish is really spoken among amigos.

    This book is EXACTLY was I have been looking for. I purchased it yesterday and I'm just so excited about learning more functional, and colloquial Spanish! It's perfect because it focuses on everyday language used in everyday situations with everyday people....and what's best is that it lists many alternative, more idiomatic phrases rather than the more basic phrases that most beginners (and even non-speakers) already know. The more I utter these phrases...the more and more I feel like a true senorita. Great job Nuria Agullo!!
