Reviews - What do our customers think?
What is the mission?  Aug 13, 2007
This book starts out as though it is meant for beginners. It explains how every letter in Spanish is pronounced. Now anyone who knows even a little Spanish knows that, unlike English, the spelling is phonetic. Once you know the rules, you can read Spanish out loud and pronounce everything correctly. Nonetheless, this book has this sort of thing throughout: "Usted me comprende, ¿verdad? oos THETH meh kohm PREHN deh, vehr THAHTH." Indeed an idiot's guide, so it would seem.

It has long lists of diseases, body parts, medical procedures, etc., which are useful to memorize. But if you try to memorize the sentences given by looking at the English, covering up the Spanish, and trying to see if you can say the Spanish, you run into big trouble. The reason is that the sentences are so loosely translated.

Let me give a few examples.

"You must eat small, frequent meals," one would think would be, "Debe comer comidas pequeñas y frecuentes." But they translate is as
"Sus comidas deben ser pequeñas y frecuentes," which is literally, "Your meals should be small and frequent."

"Are you troubled by excessive worry about your health?" is translated as "¿Se preocupa excesivamente por la salud?" which is literally, "Do you worry excessively about your health?"

I could give at least a hundred more examples of ridiculously loose translation, guaranteed to confuse the beginner and annoy the more advanced student.
