Street Spanish 1 is the best book I have come across on Spanish slang. It provides a wide range of phrases and terms not generally found elsewhere, but which a native speaker would normally use when talking to friends or family, or which often crop up in movies and books. In other words, it teaches the real Spanish that is needed to promote a better understanding when conversing with or listening to native speakers.

If a native Spanish speaker were to tell you that the pez gordo (fat fish) met a merengue (meringue) with lots of pasta (noodles) who is going to become his media naranja (half an orange), you may not know whether to offer your condolences or your congratulations -- that is, unless you've read this first book in David Burke's Street Spanish series. Street Spanish 1 lets you quickly become an insider by presenting some of the most popular slang terms used throughout the many Spanish-speaking countries. With the help of entertaining dialogues, word games and drills, crossword puzzles, and word searches, you'll finally be able to understand the everyday language used on the street, in homes, offices, stores, and among family and friends.

I'm going through all my old orders to review anything I have previously failed to review. I am writing several novels set in South Texas, and I need to be sure the slang is accurate. I bought this book after my middle daughter took me on a tour of San Antonio. I'm finding it very useful and interesting.

I have owned a previous edition of this book for a long time. I liked it so much that in subsequent years I have bought three more copies as gifts for friends.

Heavily infested with comments and explanations in English that constantly distract and do not allow to think in Spanish. I doubt that the author has any formal education in teaching foreign language. This overpriced CD set is worthless. Sorry for this harsh judgment, but from my 20+ year experience of professional translator inability of the author to teach is obvious.

Sr. Burke, take a bow! This book, the first of three, is a delight to read. I speak Spanish, so I always recommend his works to students who are making the transition from the basics of grammar and proper usage of "ordinary" language to "real" conversation.

What I really love is the way Mr. Burke has three versions of each dialogue: one in Spanish, one standard English translation and finally, an often hilarious literal English translation that drives home the images evoked by each idiom. Example: in English, we say "you're pulling my leg" but in Spanish we say "you're taking me by the hair."

Before students are ready for his books, and still, often all along the way, they need to do a lot of grammatical housekeeping and review in order to master other bothersome areas of Spanish for English speakers.

Sr. Burke, please keep writing. Ignore the nitpickers.

Sincerely,

Eric W. Vogt, Ph.D.

Street Spanish 1 is the best book I have come across on Spanish slang. It provides a wide range of phrases and terms not generally found elsewhere, but which a native speaker would normally use when talking to friends or family, or which often crop up in movies and books. In other words, it teaches the real Spanish that is needed to promote a better understanding when conversing with or listening to native speakers.
The dialogues are made up of the most popular slang expressions that are used in various Hispanic countries, allowing their usage to be observed in context while on the facing pages an English translation is provided for easy reference.
The vocabulary section that comes at the end of every dialogue focuses on each slang term and explains its usage even further by means of additional examples, while synonyms, antonyms and variations used in different countries are included to ensure that a thorough grasp of each term is reached. To gain that extra edge, this book is highly recommended for travellers and students alike.
(Having the cassettes, which are not part of the package, would be an added bonus since you would hear the dialogues being spoken by natives of Mexico, Argentina, Peru, and Spain, providing a better feel for the language, its speech patterns and the varying pronunciations).

Very useful indeed!!!
I've learned a lot of vocabulary from this book and it's amusing and well arranged. The fact that many of the expressions are not really 'slang' from the streets but just everyday 'colloquial' doesn't matter to me because they're useful anyway.

On the other hand, as soon as I started using it where I live in Spain people laughed and warned me that many of the expressions in the dialogues are either never employed here or they are out of date. So I still use it, but with caution, and I try the expressions out on Spanish friends before I learn them.
