Whether you just want to learn a few words for an upcoming vacation or brush up on Spanish class from high school, The Penguin Pocket Spanish Dictionary is a handy and priceless guide to getting it right. With over 38,000 entries, it delivers both English-to-Spanish and Spanish-to-English translations, with basic definitions and even a little help with pronunciation.

This easy-to-use guide lists words alphabetically and also includes short phrases commonly associated with a word, such as “Enough is enough,” “make the most of,” or “at death’s door,” so that you can be sure you are using the words properly in the context you desire. You also get the plural version and the proper usage of the word as verb, noun, adjective, etc.

Following the guide’s advice won’t make you an expert in the language, but it will help you communicate better and with more clarity. For those who just need to be able to speak a little Spanish, either at home or abroad, it can mean the difference between asking someone for the time or for a tuna fish sandwich. Don't leave home without it!
