Learn Spanish by Phrases and Expressions: A collection of over 5,300 useful idiomatic expressions and phrases for every-day use by Mr. Erik C. Meyer

Learning a language is a long-term process and advertisements like "Learn Spanish in 10 days" are just that - advertisements. Nobody outside of a genius has mastered a language in 10 days or in 10 weeks for that matter. Learning words and studying rote grammar, although essential, is also not the way to learn a language. While a basic vocabulary and some grammatical rules are necessary to begin to speak, it does not lead to expressing oneself with confidence. This book will change all that. The author has learned to speak 5 languages with surprising fluency and has mastered it by learning complete sentences, phrases and expressions used in every-day speech. Very soon, he was able to express himself in Spanish with ease.
After attending Spanish lessons with private teachers in Guatemala for 5 years, this collection of over 5,300 phrases and expressions was developed. It was created with the help of many native Spanish speakers from many countries in Latin America. Therefore, some phrases are specific to a particular country. What sounds alright in Mexico, might not sound so elegant in Argentina. However, a very large percentage of the samples apply equally to all Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America. All expressions are in the "familiar form" (tú) as used in Latin America instead of in the "formal form" (Usted) as used in Spain. The user of this book can adjust each sentence from "tú" to "Usted" with ease.
While over 5,300 examples sound like a lot, there is always room for more and readers are encouraged to submit any additional desired phrases or expressions as well as suggestions or corrections to the author for inclusion in future editions of this valuable guide to rapid language learning.
