1.0 out of 5 stars Buy a dictionary instead 14 Aug 2004
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although the book is well priced, and does contain 1,001 common everyday Spanish words, its hard to find anything more substantial to recommend this book with. Only having the words in Spanish leaves the beginner nowhere when trying to use the language, and the example sentences are pretty pointless, since the reader is most likely to be looking the word up to find out what it means in a given context, not put it in a different one. For the small amount of money saved, this book isn't worth the purchase over a decent pocket dictionary, which will contain far more words (and in many cases, some examples) and work both ways.

3.0 out of 5 stars a helpful addition 30 Sep 2001
I have only been learning Spanish for a year and enjoy just leafing through this book casually. It is by no means a great teaching aid or aid memoire, but it does help build vocabulary.
I try to pick up a word a week just for fun. You won't be using this as a referance manual, but you will enjoy picking through it from time to time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 12 Jun 2003
It is like a dictionary but with sentences to try as well. The sentences are translated to English. It is a shame that is not followed by the phonetic transcription to aid the pronunciation. But, the simple layout will help find the words quickly and get an accurate definition and use of the word. The meanings are ussually about 1 to 3 so the user doesn't have to choose from many. At the end it has a useful sectin of categories for the days of the week and months, numbers ...etc. And some aid for the pronunciation. The format is very simple without pictures so it is very straight forward. For the price you get a very nice little book.
