From the Author:

My first kiss from a guy (cheek to cheek, not lip to lip) froze me in place. I mean, I'd never been that close to another guy before, romantically speaking. The stench of cigarette smoke overwhelmed his clothes, his smoke-stained teeth stuck out and the stubble on his cheek scratched my face. And did I mention? It was guy! An awkward introduction to Argentina? Not at all! Just a typical gesture of Argentine warmth, emotion and passion, all of which radiate throughout the culture.

This emotion contributes to the fun you will experience learning Argentine Spanish. When an
Argentine speaks to you, not only do you hear what he/she thinks, you feel it as well. Gestures, voice patterns and emotions clearly communicate their feelings, whether contempt, annoyance or pleasure. Learn from this passion.

About the Author:

Suffering a typical 9-5 existence, Jared's foray into lunch-hour Spanish shook up his mundane life.  He quit his job, stopped by briefly to school, and then left his country...for 14 years.  Early stumblings in real-world Spanish taught him that a cola isn't just a soft drink, bicho doesn't always mean a bug, and boludo may be heartfelt or middle-finger felt.  Nine countries, three startups, two bestsellers and a Puerto Rican wife later, he is still confounded by how many Spanish words exist for "panties."  His quest is to discover all those words.  In between, he meanders, dabbles in languages, drinks wine and sells shampoo.
