Spanish Among Amigos Phrasebook is aimed at people who already have a little Spanish under their belts. It's geared to anyone who wants to get beyond "survival" Spanish and really start conversing and making "amigos". This one-of-a-kind phrasebook provides readers with all the tools they need to carry on a conversation. Apart from comprehensive lists of ready-to-go-phrases that will get the reader sounding like a native, the phrasebook offers grammar pointers, insights into Spanish culture, notes on idioms and slang, and tips on avoiding common blunders. It also contains true-to-life conversations "among amigos" featuring Pepa and Pili, two sassy young women from Madrid, and their friend Mark, an American whose Spanish doesn't quite measure up. Readers also have the chance to practice the phrases in fill-in-the-blank dialogues at the end of each unit.

The idea for this phrasebook grew out of the original Spanish Among Amigos. After that came out, my editor suggested I do a phrasebook in the same vein. I resisted at first. I confess I'm not a big fan of phrasebooks and just couldn't get excited about doing a book composed of list upon list of ready-made phrases. But, around a year later, after lots of cajoling, I agreed to do it. And what do you know? Despite my initial misgivings, I ended up really getting into this phrasebook. It was a ton of work, but also a lot of fun. I hope you also enjoy using it, and it becomes a trusty companion. Most of all, I hope it opens up new horizons for you in Spanish, and helps you make lots of new amigos!From the Author:
