ABOUT THE BOOK
España. The country’s Spanish name rolls off the tongue so easily, provoking images of a lazy afternoon during siesta as warm breezes gently stir you awake. Upon awakening, you would stroll over to the nearest restaurant on Las Ramblas, Barcelona’s most famous street, and sit down for some steaming-hot tapas. As you knock back a glass of wine while waiting for your order, the thought hits you: if only you had a lovely Spanish lady by your side to complete this perfect moment.
This book will attempt to help you find that dark-haired, boisterous woman of your dreams. Playboys and voyeurs, however, beware. Since this guide is written by a girl, respect and good intentions will be requirements on the journey. But if you heed my woman’s intuition to the end, with a little bit of luck and the key foreign languages phrases in this book, you will be successful no matter what your aim, be it a first date or long-term relationship.
MEET THE AUTHOR
Having trudged through four continents and lived in two countries by the age of 21, Yoonj considers herself a citizen of the world. It is through this perspective that she approaches everything in her life, including writing. Having studied journalism and international studies at Northwestern University, she is keen to tell stories of people and events around the world. She has previously written for The Chicago Tribune, The Orange County Register, and dabbled in documentary production at CNN. Her next stop will be e.tv, a television channel in Johannesburg, South Africa, where in her free time she hopes to indulge her other interests of food, drink, and dance.
EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
So you’re at the club, or cafe, or whatever your social venue of choice is, to meet people. You look around and spy over in the corner a tanned shoulder, dark eyelashes, a beautiful smile. A chica bonita.
You’re dying to go over and talk to her but you have absolutely no idea what to do, what to say, or even which smile to give her. My advice to you: have no worries.
Spanish girls, at least the many I’ve met through traveling, possess a wonderful combination of qualities: they stay relaxed while being vivacious talkers. All you will need is an interesting fact about yourself, so you’re basically covered since by virtue of being a foreigner in Spain (or Mexico, or any other Spanish-speaking country), you’re instantly interesting. Use that to your advantage, since one of the best ways to experience a new country is to meet new people.
Now all you need to do is straighten your collar, fix that cowlick, and head on over to her armed with these Spanish terms.
