Updated, and with audio compact discs to replace the old audiocassette tapes, this language-learning book-and-audio program is an informal, user-friendly Spanish course. It is specifically designed for non-Spanish speakers who need to learn fundamental words and expressions in Spanish in order to communicate with Latino employees in the household or workplace. This new edition keeps up with current social trends, taking into account the increasing frequency in which Anglos and Spanish-speakers converse not only as employers and employees, but also as co-workers. Rather than emphasize dry rules of grammar, author William Harvey teaches informal, idiomatic conversational Spanish. Both the book and the compact discs recreate typical scenes in household or workplace with appropriate dialogue passages. The compact discs, which may be used independently of the book, can also be purchased as a separate item.

Harvey avoids the tedium of verb conjugations, but still manages to give the casual user of Spanish enough to muddle by. He spends a lot of time with the imperative case (e.g., ponga, haga), which would be used with Spanish speaking yard workers, baby sitters, domestics, and the like.

The major strengths of Harvey's book are the plethora of useful household vocabulary and its easy, enjoying writing style. Each chapter builds up household words, room by room and activity by activity. Thus, we learn what we need to communicate with our Spanish help when cooking, cleaning, running errands, yard maintenance, and so on. There is little or nothing of what I call tourist Spanish; so there is no restaurant or hotel dialog in his book.

The easy reading stems from frequent use of cartoons to get a point across and scenario driven phrases meant to put them into contexts we might find ourselves in with our Spanish help.

This is a great book in itself for the casual user of Spanish around the home and an excellent book as a textbook supplement for the serious student of Spanish. I strongly recommend this book...through its use, I was able to communicate quite well in Argentina quite recently.

I first previewed this book from the local library. I enjoyed it so much, I purchased my own copy. The author has other materials called "Spanish for Gringos" that I also own. He writes in a simple, easy to understand way and makes the learning enjoyable.

The particular is very straightforward....learn the vocabulary, review, practice. The pronunciation guides are excellent! Having a brief spanish-english dictionary in the back is very helpful so there's no need to juggle two books in order to study.

There is a VERY simple instruction in different verb tenses - it didn't seem like it was any big deal at all. Most instructors make such a big deal out that and thereby make it more difficult to learn by creating a "fear" in the student.

Highly recommend this companion study book.

The course is great if you already have a little knowledge of conversational Spanish. I really learned a lot from it. The first CD goes through basic Spanish at a very rapid pace. I never studied Spanish in school. But I have previously gone through the entire Pimsleur Spanish courses, Levels 1,2,3, so I already know some very basic Spanish. This course is excellent if, like me, you have a little knowledge of Spanish to begin with. It's at a fast pace, and it adds lots of vocabulary relating to specific household duties that I didn't pick up in the Pimsleur courses. If you have no knowledge of Spanish, William Harvey has some other videos and CDs that would be good to review before tackling this one.

It is poorly organized and unless you're going to study it diligently memorizing the phrases, a waste of money, time and paper as you can't look things up easily if you want to say something in Spanish to your housekeeper. Maybe they should title it, "Household Spanish--Advanced Edition"

Hava a Spanish-speaking housekeeper, so it really comes in handy. Besides, we are considering a move to Mexico, as my husband does a lot of work there. I keep it in my bedside table, so it is always at the ready. It has helped my Spanish conversation, too. A good book for beginners.
I would recommend this book. I have Spanish and English speaking housecleaning staff and it help to communicate with them.
