big red book of spanish idioms,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Big Red Book of Spanish Idioms: 4,000 Idiomatic Expressions (Paperback)
I like it a lot. I actually am the sort of person who reads textbooks and dictionaries for relaxation (!!!!!!!) and although of course it doesn't all sink in at once, a lot of it will ring a bell when you meet it, or are trying to think of an expression at a later date, and then at any rate you know how to go about finding it through key words. I find the index useful. I can well believe that a lot of currently 'in' idioms may not be found in it - after all it is a book and slang is constantly updating, so it can't keep itself 100% up to date - but for the kind of reading, writing and conversation I'm doing,in classes and with a couple of Spanish friends,I find it extremely helpful.
