A very useful tool
Great book as part of your learning tools. It's not a course or a phrase book, but a really well organised, clearly laid-out summary of appropriate ways to communicate - good straightforward sentence starters for example, which you can end according to your requirements (I'd like...., where is the... etc up to more complex structures). You need to understand some introductory level Spanish to really use this, so suitable for someone with basic knowledge but who wants guidance in struturing conversations. I particularly like the boxes which suggest things to listen out for when you are answered in Spanish - as understanding the answer is often much harder than asking the question. It avoids the usual phrase book silliness of giving you detailed and complex things to say with no clues as to what answers you might get.
