Reviewers call it "an insightful guide to the Spanish that's never in the textbooks"

Spanish, much like English, has been twisted and spun by location. "Liven Up Your Latin American SpanishIdioms & Expressions You Need to Know" is a guide to understanding the slang and idioms of popular culture throughout Latin America and how to understand how everyday people speak Spanish and how to speak vernacular Spanish with them. With plenty of exercises to practice and an audio CD to help learn pronunciation and more, "Liven Up Your Latin American Spanish" is an insightful guide to the Spanish that's never in the textbooks. — Midwest Book Review
You won't find many intermediate-advanced Spanish books like this that have audio available. That's why I love it. Highly recommended!
