Most of the time, teaching books are boring. They always have the same kind of format: Two (sometimes more) people talking about where the library is, or where to find Juan.
That's boring, and to be honest, it's not a great way to learn the language (not to mention that they don't always talk about things that you might encounter in your daily life, for example, a judgmental ghost, being the last man on Earth, or maybe find that the love of your life has been stolen).
But in this book, I will give you 20 short stories that will range from science fiction to romance, everything in between and sometimes even more. These stories will give you an entire picture of the Spanish language, and how to appreciate the subtlety of the language.
The Spanish language is rich, full of small differences between the different countries. Things that might be one way in Argentina might be different in Spain or Mexico. But don't worry, with this book, you will have a firm grasp on the language, and you will be able to understand and have a conversation with any Spanish speaker.
After each story, there will be a questionnaire section where you will answer questions about the stories in Spanish. I really suggest to grab a blank page, and write down the answers, or the small assignments that you will be given (don't worry, they won't be long!). Remember to write them in Spanish, so you can practice and use the language. Also, in this section, you will find grammar and fun facts not just from the stories themselves, but from the inspirations behind them, and facts about living in a Spanish country. I hope you like them.
All these stories are written from my heart, and I deeply hope that you will find them funny, mysterious, romantic, or at least entertaining.
That's my goal as a writer, and I hope you enjoy your time reading (and learning!)

Spanish is the most widely spoken Romance language, with more than 400 million native speakers all over the world. It is the official language in 21 countries including Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Argentina, and Equatorial Guinea. It is the most popular second language in the United States and Europe. The large population of Spanish speakers around the world in four continents and beyond makes it a smart choice for a second language.
The fast and steady growth of the Spanish speaking population has made Spanish a necessity in business. Learning Spanish will empower you to communicate in the most productive way with Spanish speaking co-workers, employees, or customers. Hispanic consumers are the most dynamic market segment in North America.
Knowing Spanish is particularly advantageous if you're in the healthcare or education sector. The globalization trend has made it possible to tap this vast and fast growing market segment. Health practitioners and professionals who want to provide the best services to their Spanish-speaking clients will want to speak and understand their language to ensure that there are no barriers to excellent service.
If you're looking for job opportunities worldwide, having Spanish in your résumé will certainly confer definite advantages over those who are monolingual.

Traveling in Spanish countries can be hard. Believe me, I'm a frequent traveler, and I've been all around the world. I've been in Europe, Asia, and South America, and I have to say that of all the places that I've been, I've never found more caring and lovely people than in Spanish countries. Maybe it is their past, maybe is their language, but they are always available to give you a hand, talk to you, have fun, grab a drink, and generally have a good time.
But the language barrier might be hard. You might find yourself trying to say something, and the interlocutor understanding another thing entirely. It might be quite frustrating, and then you end up using your fingers or pointing to what you want, and to be honest, it's quite ridiculous and a bit childish.
Sometimes, you might be lucky and find someone nearby who understands English, and that works for the moment, but what if there's no one there? What if you want a burger without cheese? Or maybe you want a diet Coke, not regular, because you don't consume sugar? Or, leaving aside the food matters (which are quite important!), let's say that you want to book a hotel room, but you don't want to spend too much, and obviously, you don't want to pay for things that you don't need. So there goes the Jacuzzi, or the HD television. And you have to make yourself clear, that you don't want that, without using insults and pointing to the things that you don't want.
That's why I'm writing this book, to help you on your travels, so if you want to take a trip to a Spanish Country, you won't find it hard to express yourself. And I will not just explain you some phrases in Spanish to ease your life in your trip, I will also teach the differences between countries, and how to travel from one place to another.
So, if you were planning a trip, or maybe you are already in one and found yourself in a problem, this is the book for you. I hope it helps you with anything that might arise on your trip.
