Spanish for Xenophobes
Lingo Learners – Spanish for Xenophobes
A humorous approach to Spanish that shows that you can speak the lingo simply by using plain English.
Helpful phrases will trip off your tongue, gems like:
‘Do you have a garlic-free zone?’, ‘Your donkey is standing on my foot’ and ‘It’s going to take how long?’
“This book changed my holiday. I was amazed at the result – I can speak Spanish!” Ella Pie
I speak Spanish to God, Italian to women, French to men and German to my horse. I would never be without my Xenophobe's Lingo Learner.
Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor 1500-1558
About the author
Drew Launay is the author of more than a dozen novels, plays, works of non-fiction, and BBC broadcasts. After discovering that the natives of other countries refused to understand what he was talking about, Drew devised the Xenophobe's way of coping with the problem and now speaks Spanish, French, Italian, and German like a true Brit. He lives in Nerja, near Malaga, Spain where he sits most days on the beach with his laptop writing to language professors and academics world-wide warning them that their number is up.
