If you are planning a vacation to, going to study abroad or plan to live in Buenos Aires, this book is for you. You will learn not only Spanish, but all the Argentine variations that are different from the Spanish from Spain or Mexico.
This is a book that brings Argentine Spanish to you. In addition to learning Argentine Spanish, developing and growing your grammar and vocabulary you will be learning the way in which “Porteños” (people from Buenos Aires) speak.
It is well known that Argentines (and more specifically people from Buenos Aires) speak a kind of Spanish that includes many different variations: “What is VOS?”, “What does SOS mean?”, etc.
This is not a book about “slang” even though you can find some here, it is a book that will teach you proper “Spanish Rioplatense” (the name for the Spanish surrounding the Rio del Plata including Buenos Aires and some parts of Uruguay) putting focus on some very typical Argentine idioms and words.
You will find exercises after almost every lesson with the answers at the end.
The aim of this book is to keep everything as simple as possible. Concepts are presented as straightforward as they can be. It is designed for you to have an easy reference to any concept you are stuck on or in need of review. Everything written in Spanish is provided as well in English, so you understand why or how certain words are used.
