Spanish vocabulary changes significantly from one country to the next. Yet, few people learn about this until they are in a country, stumbling through the local Spanish.

Are you learning Spanish? Preparing to visit Chile? Or even just wanting to be more familiar with its specific slang and local words?

Speaking Chileno, already a bestseller in Chile, is the most up-to-date reference book of Chilean Spanish vocabulary. It features more than 2,000 words and phrases explained in English, many with sample sentences.

This dictionary-style book also includes 29 humorous cartoon illustrations, plus short sections about Chilean gestures, pronunciation, and grammar.
