Many language books are boring—this one is not. Written by a native English speaker who learned Spanish the hard way—by trying to talk to Spanish-speaking people—it offers English speakers who have a basic knowledge of Spanish hundreds of tips for using the language more fluently and colloquially, with fewer obvious "gringo" errors. Writing with humor, common sense, and a minimum of jargon, Joseph J. Keenan covers everything from pronunciation, verb usage, and common grammatical mistakes to the subtleties of addressing other people, "trickster" words that look alike in both languages, inadvertent obscenities, and intentional swearing. He guides readers through the set phrases and idiomatic expressions that pepper the native speaker's conversation and provides a valuable introduction to the most widely used Spanish slang. With this book, both students in school and adult learners who never want to see another classroom can rapidly improve their speaking ability. Breaking Out of Beginner's Spanish will be an essential aid in passing the supreme language test—communicating fluently with native speakers.

SPEAK SOME SPANISH is ideal for an informal class or for self-study. It provides a solid grammatical foundation within a useful context, extensive vocabulary, much presented in a unique way, and avenues for developing communication skills. While grammar is explained throughout, the book is designed around communication needs, language usage, useful topics, such as greetings, coping in a conversation, weather, telling time, directions, descriptions, and ways to speak of past, present, and future actions. Verbs, often a source of dismay for language learners, are presented in a unique way. Their mastery is made much simpler; no longer is there the challenge or tedium of memorizing conjugations. Following the regular chapters are nine EXTRA sections covering verb charts for and additional uses of the present subjunctive as well as other important verb forms, tenses, and their uses that are not covered in the chapters: commands; the two simple past tenses - the imperfect (indicative) and the preterite - their forms, their uses, and their use together; and the future (indicative.) These sections are for reference for anyone wishing to expand the SOME of the book title, SPEAK SOME SPANISH. The book concludes with present indicative verb charts and vocabularies.
