I don’t have a Hispanic background, I didn’t start as a kid. I learned Spanish as an adult, just like you. During that process I faced one of the most difficult aspects of the Spanish language: the diversity among countries! Yes, this language is different in every Spanish-speaking country. What? Nobody ever mentioned that before? I’m not surprised, I had the same experience. "Learning the Local Language: Your Guide to Real World Spanish" is a book where I share tricks and tips on becoming fluent in local Spanish. Today, I am fluent in Spanish and am convinced that nobody should struggle as I did the first time I stepped into a Spanish-speaking country. This 40-page book includes: 1. How Speaking Latino Will Save You Hours and Hours Learning Spanish 2. The 4 Local Language Dimensions 3. The 8 Secrets to Speak Like a Local 4. The complete list of 35 online Spanish slang dictionaries by country that you can refer to for free with over 80,000 words and phrases 5. A list of books and slang dictionaries by country

About Jared Romey

See more books from this Author
Suffering a typical 9-5 existence, Jared's foray into lunch-hour Spanish shook up his mundane life. He quit his job, stopped by briefly to school, and then left his country...for 14 years. Early stumblings in real-world Spanish taught him that a cola isn't just a soft drink, bicho doesn't always mean a bug, and boludo may be heartfelt or middle-finger felt. Nine countries, three startups, two bestsellers and a Puerto Rican wife later, he is still confounded by how many Spanish words exist for "panties." His quest is to discover all those words. In between, he meanders, dabbles in languages, drinks wine and sells shampoo.
