This book is intended to be a basic introduction to Spanish as it’s spoken in Argentina (and likely also in Uruguay). The grammar of Argentine Spanish is essentially the same as in standard Latin American Spanish; the main difference being the use of the pronoun “vos”. For that reason I have provided the verb forms as they correspond to that pronoun (rather than the pronoun “tú” of Standard Spanish), since Argentines rarely use the pronoun tú, even though they certainly understand it. I’ve also included a chapter that explains the “voseo” more in detail, as well as a chapter that talks about pronunciation and vocabulary differences in Argentine Spanish when compared to Standard Spanish. PLEASE NOTE: This book is NOT a book on Argentine slang (although it may contain a few slang words). For those, interesed in slang words (Argentine slang is commonly referred to as “lunfardo”), I recommend looking for a book or article specifically on that topic. This book contains a pronuncation guide, phrases useful in daily life, important vocabulary and basic grammar. It does not contain audio cds, photos or tourist information.
