This Spanish Dictionary/Thesaurus holds a wealth of information on how to get down to the "nitty gritty" of the Spanish Language, and that is speaking like the average Joe.

Be prepared to learn how to speak like a native as well as understand the slang and verbal jabs commonly used among acquaintances. This stuff is not taught in Spanish classes.

This book is more than just a dictionary.

It gives alot of current info as well as the "slang" used.

Was helpful with phrases necessary to get around.

Also includes lists, photos, and much more.

Another thing we liked is that it has large enough print not to need my reading glasses !!

A good resource for anyone studying Spanish or trying to keep up to date with all the changes that the language suffers every day.

I've asked friends from foreign countries about some of the slang in the book, in the country it's supposed to be used and for the most part they didn't know what I was talking about, but it is a great book for helping to expand your vocabulary.

Description stated that this item was new but there were some minor scratches on both the front and back cover, making it seem to be slightly used.

The book is well organized thematically and alphabetically with colloquial words & expressions that are used and heard in the everyday spoken language. The book offers a broad range of expressions with examples of its usage in a phrase and the country of origin. Therefore, if you are looking to clarify queries concerning slang words or expressions this dictionary/ thesaurus would prove helpful and also is a learning tool for those who wish to learn and use colloquialisms from any the Spanish speaking countries in their everyday speech. Here are some examples of slang expressions, the respective country and common usage covered in the book:
Under the theme "Going Crazy"

This was a very useful book. I believe that it helped me to learn more social and slang language. I would definitely repurchase.
