Planning a trip to Central America? Studying abroad in Spain? Then you need an authentic guide to Spanish as it's spoken in everyday situations! Whether ordering a meal, bargaining for clothes in a shop, or impressing an attractive member of the opposite sex, Making Out in Spanish covers it all.

Te adoro! Cuando puedo volver a verte? (I adore you! When can I see you next time?). Answer this correctly in Spanish and you may be going on a hot date. Incorrectly, and you could hurt someone's feelings! Spanish classes and textbooks tend to spend a lot of time rehearsing for the same fictitious scenarios, but Making Out in Spanish prepares you for real encounters that you may not be prepared for.

If you are a student, business traveler, or tourist traveling to Latin America or Spain and would like to have an authentic and meaningful experience, the key is being able to speak like a local. This friendly and easy-to-use Spanish phrasebook makes this possible. Making Out in Spanish has been carefully designed to act as a guide to modern colloquial Spanish for use in everyday informal interactions—giving access to the sort of catchy Spanish expressions that aren't covered in traditional language materials.
