Practice the Art of Conversation in Spanish!
Want to strike up a conversation with a native Spanish speaker but nervous that youre not ready? This book helps you overcome that obstacle and before you know it, youll be speaking comfortably in your new native language.
Practice Makes Perfect: Spanish Conversation is organized around twelve units that present realistic conversational situations, from making introductions to giving opinions and from making a date to telling a story. Using these engaging dialogues as a starting point, each unit is packed with helpful instruction on correct pronunciation, syntax, and word usage--in addition to lots of conversation-ready phrases that you will find indispensable as your fluency increases.
You will, of course, get plenty of practice, practice, practice using your new skills in conversation. Each dialogue is followed by a variety of exercises that not only give you the opportunity to put new concepts into action but also encourage you to construct personalized conversations. These lessons will reassure even the most grammar-phobic learners that they too can achieve a confident--and spontaneous--speaking style.
