1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version frustrating
The search facility mentioned in this books introduction did not appear to work.
Using the kindle word search did not find words despite being able to see them in the book, for instance in the menu section.
To look for words in the English to Spanish an Spanish to English sections you have to swipe through every page to reach the word you are looking for...

This review is from: Latin American Spanish Phrasebook (Collins Gem) (Paperback)
`Collins Latin American Spanish Phrasebook' is a neat, pocket sized and comprehensive phrasebook to aid you with your travel communications. It has over 70 topics that are arranged thematically and cover such things as talking to people, getting around, driving, staying somewhere, shopping, leisure, communications, rusticities, health, different types of travellers (disabled or with kids etc), reference, eating out, a menu reader and a section on Latin American countries, grammar and a 3000 word dictionary. Not bad at all for such a small package. It also starts with a couple of pages with some tips about travelling in Latin American countries in general. Each chapter is colour coded and the layout is clear and easy to access. It may not be as attractive as other phrasebooks out there (the BBC series still wins hands down for me) but it offers a great deal of language, at an excellent price. If you are looking for a holiday phrasebook I'd highly recommend you consider this book, it has everything you could need in an attractive little package.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

It#s probably easier to carry a paper edition as it can be hard to find what you want in a hurry!
