Lonely Planet First Words – Spanish

We rated this book:


This book is a guide book to learning the Spanish language. It doesn’t really have a plot to it because it’s not really a story. Instead, it teaches you how a lot (around 100!) of words are said in Spanish. There is only one Spanish word on each page (the left-hand page), and in parentheses, below the word, it tells you how to pronounce it. On the right-hand page, it shows you a colorful picture of the thing you’re talking about. There are a couple of pages of pictures with an additional word. For example, the word “apple,” which is “manzana” in Spanish, has an extra word on the picture! It’s a picture of a worm! (Worm is “gusano” in Spanish!) Some of my favorite words from this book are: “cuchara,” which means “spoon,” “iglesia,” which means “church,” and “emparedado,” which means “sandwich.” One thing I noticed from this book is that some Spanish words are the same as their English words. For example, the Spanish word for “hospital” is “hospital”! And the Spanish word for “menu” is “menu” (except in the Spanish word, there’s a mark called an accent over the “u.”) I think that I would like to give this book to Miss Granados, my Spanish teacher, and her future students.
