4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting material for beginning to intermediate level.
Most of the Spanish proverbs have a similar or sometimes exact equivalent in English. This makes it fun and easier to try to guess the meaning of unknown words by their context. For anyone wishing to improve their reading ability in Spanish this is an entertaining and enjoyable book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little thin.
The actual content of this book is helpful, but it has a lot of padding. I don't think it's really necessary for an illustration and a full conversational context for each phrase, so I find it hard to believe that 115 pages are needed to explain a mere 101 proverbs. It is a useful book for any spanish speaker or learner to have on their shelf nevertheless.

This review is from: 101 Spanish Proverbs (101... Language Series) (Paperback)
101 Spanish Proverbs is a fun way to learn Spanish. The Spanish are famous for their frequent use of proverbs in their everyday conversations. This book helps the reader to learn by visually picturing the cartoon that depicts the proverb. The Spanish story underneath then illustrates how the Spanish would use the proverb in their conversation. There are translations at the back of the book to ensure that the reader is fully aware of the meanings of the proverbs and the book is divided into sections that group the proverbs by subject matter.

Brilliant, easy and fun!
