Overview

Why doesn't a Mexican elk have many friends?
It's very ante-social (ante = elk)

And that's how this spicy little book makes learning Spanish as fun as a pun—by introducing new Spanish words with jokes, quips, and muy risas (lots of laughs). Language innovator Sue Fenton knows it's a lot easier to remember something when it brings a smile (or even a groan)—go with boring vocabulary flashcards if you want a siesta (zzz) or try this book and guarantee a fiesta (ole!).

Say "adios" to boring lessons and "hola" to fun learning:

What is a Latin American woodpecker's favorite soda?
Cuco-cola (cuco = woodpecker)

Where did Spanish surrealist artists get their cold cuts and cheese?
At the Salvador Deli (Salvador Dalí = Spanish surrealist painter)

How did Luke Skywalker and his Star Wars friends celebrate the Jedi master's birthday?
With a Pin-Yoda (piñata)

    Puns for Fun

    Learning a language can be daunting -- and boring. This book shows why neither have to be the case. Rather, it encourages language students as well as language lovers to play with language and have fun. Filled with clever mnemonic devices, each 'joke' will make you smile or groan but the recognition will make you remember, and isn't that the point? Whether you're already proficient or just starting to learn Spanish, you'll find humorous links that you probably hadn't thought of and ways to connect language and culture. The book is not a language course it is a fun way to gain second-language vocabulary and proficiency. The 13 themes can be used in classroom to encourage further vocabulary development and word plays, and the inclusion of culture notes will add to your understanding. With 500 puns, there's something for everyone As a joke book or as a classroom supplement, this little book packs a big pun.
