Streetwise Spanish Dictionary/Thesaurus (Streetwise)by Mary Mcvey Gill
Synopses & Reviews
Ever wanted to call someone a “big shot” or “hick” in Spanish, or wondered how to say “Let's pig out” or “Don't give me a hard time”? And what's going on if a Spaniard “hallucinates in color” (alucina en colores) or if a Mexican “throws an eye-taco” (echa un taco de ojo)? This book has all the answers and more, contained within 5,000 current idiomatic terms and slang expressions-all conveniently grouped in an A-Z thematic arrangement.
Streetwise Spanish Dictionary/Thesaurus is a uniquely user-friendly guide, designed for reference, for browsing, and as a learning tool.
Whether you're a student, teacher, businessperson, or tourist, you'll enjoy enriching your Spanish with the vibrant language usually understood by native speakers alone. But be warned-the Spanish language is one of the world's richest, and some expressions are particularly colorful!
People who are fed up (hasta la madre--"up to the mother") with classroom Spanish will enjoy this A-to-Z thematic arrangement of more than 5,000 colorful terms and slang expressions from across the Spanish-speaking world. "Streetwise Spanish Dictionary/Thesaurus" includes numerous examples, quizzes, humorous illustrations, cultural information, and help with usage. How good is that? (Que Padre!--"What a father").
