So you thought you spoke Spanish? Ah, but these words or phrases make no sense? Welcome to Argentina and its unique Spanish.
Speaking Argento is the book that will help you understand Argentines. This light-hearted dictionary-style book includes the vocabulary (and some Lunfardo words) you need to know and were never taught in school. Over 1,300 words and phrases are explained in English. The book also includes short sections that list some of the particularities of the Argentine grammar, pronunciation and gestures. There are also quick vocabulary tables that group words and phrases of a common topic. 35 funny cartoon illustrations are included to help explain word meanings.
Whether you are visiting Argentina for the first time, an Argentine looking to enjoy the unique vocabulary of your country, or even wanting to get back in touch with your family roots and heritage, Speaking Argento will be a fun book for you.
This book follows the light-hearted, humorous style of two bestseller books in the Speaking Latino series: Speaking Boricua and Speaking Chileno that were the result of the experience of a gringo, Jared Romey, living, working and mingling among locals in these countries.
IS THIS BOOK FOR ME? This bilingual book contains words that are not appropriate for kids. If you are just starting to learn Spanish, this book is best used as a complementary reference source to any program or class designed to teach you Spanish. This book and the other books of the Speaking Latino series are not designed as stand-alone learning aids, to teach you Spanish. Instead, they expand your country-specific Spanish vocabulary. If you already speak Spanish, this book help you understand local Spanish from Argentina.
