9780007101641: Spanish: Language Survival Guide (Collins Language Survival Guide)

Why don’t things abroad work the same way as at home when they look so familiar? An illustrated phrase book for situations where you don’t need words, plus those essential phrases when you do.

How were you to know that you had to weigh your own fruit in the supermarket, or that the unidenfified machine on the platform was where you should have punched your ticket before getting on the train, or that the barman is trying to tell you to pay for your drink at the cash till before you can order it at the bar, or that the titbits he places by your side are for everyone, not just for you to scoff?

New generation phrase book combining highly illustrated practical information (specially commissioned photos) together with essential phrases

Up-to-date dictionary containing practical information

An illustrated menu reader to help you sample the best food

Collins Language Survival Guides – the key to hassle-free travel

From the Publisher:

Over the years we have tried to keep our phrase books in touch with modern life and reflect what you come across abroad. So you won't find ‘I have two pounds of tea for my own use’ (Collins Italian 1938). Nor will you find ‘Please stop the bus, my child is feeling sick’ (Collins French Phrase Book & Dictionary 1990). Not so much because this might not be a useful phrase, but by the time you had fished the book out of your bag, found the appropriate page and managed to read out the phrase, you would probably be sitting in a sticky mess. Our new Language Survival Guides are unique in that they don't only give you phrases you need (short and simple), they also show you photos of things that are useful to know: milk cartons showing the different options: full fat and semi skimmed, or the words you see on labels such as ‘organic’ and ‘without sugar’. Things you want to know when trawling around the supermarket, but which you wouldn't really want to stop and ask somebody about. There are road signs, parking meters, cash dispensers, all looking very much like what you find at home – but unless you know a few key words or a bit about how they actually operate – which might fox you. With over 250 photos giving practical useful advice and a menu reader with photos of some of the dishes you might want to try, we feel these phrase books are invaluable for any trip.

From the Back Cover:

How were you to know that you had to weigh your own fruit in the supermarket, or that the unidenfified machine on the platform was where you should have punched your ticket before getting on the train, or that the barman is trying to tell you to pay for your drink at the cash till before you can order it at the bar, or that the titbits he places by your side are for everyone, not just for you to scoff?
