Spanish Small Talk will improve your conversational ability immediately. After reading and studying this book you will be more confident in speaking Spanish.
Many Spanish books do a great job of preparing you for conversations in standard settings, such as a restaurant, hotel or airport, but not for situations in your daily, regular life. This book helps to fill in those gaps.
Spanish Small Talk offers conversations that you would encounter in multiple situations as you go about your day. The banter is realistic and you can take what you learn and use it in your daily life. The conversations are also grouped into themes so you will continue to learn certain words or phrases, but will not get bored. For instance, in the It’s Time to Eat section you will find five conversations about ordering food, but the settings will vary greatly. You will see the characters deal with:
The pizza delivery guy
Trying to obtain freebies or discounts
Buying from a street vendor
Lovers eating in a special place; and
Going through a drive thru
These are situations that most people will find themselves in when trying to buy food. What’s more, the lessons learned can be applied to the more general settings of a fancy restaurant if needed.
Spanish Small Talk offers dialogue that could take place from the time you wake up until you go to sleep at night. It is the perfect book to add to your studies. It can serve as a guide to teach you how to interact with many different types of people in multiple settings. It can also serve as much needed break from your regular Spanish courses.
