!Mierda!: The Real Spanish You Were Never Taught in School

!Mierda!: The Real Spanish You Were Never Taught in School

Remember all those words and phrases your Spanish teacher would never translate for you? Remember how frustrating it was to thumb furiously through your Spanish/English dictionary and not be able to come up with even the mildest expletives? Well, if you're hitting the streets of L.A., Miami, or Mexico City, flying down to South America, sunning yourself in Puerto Rico, or taking in the museums of Spain, you won't be able to rely on your classroom Castilian. Finally, there is an uncensored language guide that puts the fun back in learning (and speaking) a foreign language. Mierda goes beyond those prim and proper lesson plans to offer invaluable instruction on the real Spanish they never taught in school: from colorful colloquialisms to hard-core curses; the ever popular bodily functions; body parts; pithy epithets for every occasion; and more. Spanish vulgarismo is not just the dirty words (though have no fear, you'll find them here); it is the key to understanding everyday Spanish as it is really spoken.
