This BBC book is an excellent beginner's Spanish book. It offers the usual language topics e.g. greetings, family, food etc in a very simple to absorb manner. However, it also offers a cultural slant on Spain and all of the Latin America countires explaining the origins of words, customs etc along with colourful ilustrations which help you remember things easier. There are blocks of topic related phrases in every section and exercises to test understanding (with answers in the back of the book). It introduces grammar in a gradual manner. You can also buy the acompanying tapes to develop your listening skills and ensure your pronunciation is spot on! I would recommend this book to anyone looking to teach themselves this very easy to pick up language.
