Publisher Comments:

If a native Spanish-speaker were to say to you, "You’re taking my hair!" (¡Me estás tomando el pelo!), you may not know how to respond…unless, of course, you’ve read David Burke’s newest book on Spanish idioms, Street Spanish 2. Then you’d know that this common expression is equivalent to the American idiom, "You’re pulling my leg!" Street Spanish 2 will lead you through an exciting domain of imaginative and popular Spanish idioms by the use of dialogues, vocabulary lessons, entertaining word drills and games including crossword puzzles, fill-ins, find-a-word charts, and dictations. A comprehensive glossary rounds out this fact- and fun-filled guide.

Synopsis:

This text is designed to teach the fundamentals of Spanish idioms in 10 lessons. It aims to teach readers how to use idiomatic expressions in conversational situations, including at the movies, in restaurants, at parties, and at the supermarket.
