Pronunciation In order to achieve an approximation to the phonetics of some Spanish words it is necessary to resort to complicated phonetic symbols; for that reason, the use of a pocket book such as our Conversation Guide, would be very restricted. The user would have first to memorize all the phonetic symbols before being able to use the book. Our aim is not, therefore, to teach the traveller correct pronounciation, but, to attain that, using the normal English letters, s/he may make himself/ herself understood in any Spanish-speaking country. In some cases we have preferred to sacrifice the possibility of a smart Castilian pronounciation for another, less smart perhaps, but more within reach of an English-speaking person.
