Learn the slang words, modern phrases, and curses they definitely never taught you in Spanish class with this super-handy and hilariously improper English-Spanish phrasebook.

You already know enough Spanish to get by, but you want to be able to tell those inside jokes, greet your friends in a laid-back manner, and casually pick someone up at a bar.

From “What’s up?” to “Wanna go home with me?” Dirty Spanish will teach you how to speak like you're a regular on the streets of Madrid or Buenos Aires. But you’ll also discover material that goes beyond a traditional phrasebook, including: 

  • Hilarious insults
  • Provocative facts
  • Explicit swear words
  • Themed Spanish cocktails
  • And more!

Next time you’re traveling to Spain, Mexico, or Argentina, pick up this book, drop the textbook formality, and get dirty!
