WHY SHOULD YOU GET “SPANISH FOR TRAVELLERS”?
“Spanish for Travellers” by Lourdes Flores is so much better than other books around because after 15 years teaching her language, this teacher knows what travellers really want and need to learn to survive while visiting a Spanish speaking country.
There are plenty of options for Spanish travellers’ books. However, many of them are only phrase books and they do not have any grammar explanation. On the other hand, some of those books contain hundreds of pages filled with too much grammar and have been printed in black and white so they become very complicated, boring and heavy to carry.
“Spanish for Travellers” is a combination of a text book and a phrase book. It has a basic grammar section with exercises, dialogues for many contexts and colourful pages.
So, why would you purchase a boring, heavy and complicated book, when you can get the perfect package?
