If you've never tried to take your Spanish language skills "one the road" then you probably don't know how different classroom Spanish is from real spoken Spanish. I've been studying Spanish for 8 years, and travel to Latin America at least once a year. During the time I'm back home, I get a little rusty, so I use Streetwise Spanish along with the Learning Spanish Like Crazy course to stay fresh. Both have an emphasis on conversational Latin American Spanish.<BR/><BR/>Streetwise Spanish is as authentic as they come. Not only does it cover colloquial language and slang, it also has a section on curse words. Now, this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I want to know what's being said to (or about) me no matter how dirty the language is.<BR/><BR/>For what you get, Streetwise Spanish is reasonably priced and covers a lot of ground. It spans a little more than 300 pages using dialogues and cartoons to contextualize the lessons within. Personally, I think this is one of the most valuable resources available for spoken Spanish.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
