Learning Spanish through reading street signs

Can't Post | Private Reply
Years ago, before I got serious about studying Spanish, an acquaintance showed me a book in English about learning Spanish from reading street signs, basically, commercial storefront signs.

The book focused on Mexican Spanish, and it seemed that most of the photographs were of signs in Mexico City.

I've searched Amazon.com, but nothing in the search results matches the book I remember.

Can anyone recall such a book? And, if so, could you kindly give me a pointer to its title and/or author?

Many thanks,

-- K.H.

I do not know about such a book. I did not even know that you could study like that. Is not it more difficult? I think it will be better to start reading books in Spanish, at least children's books.

La realidad es que yo creo que es una buena idea.Reading highway signs, billboards, street signs and advertizing is the way that I started to learn some basic Spanish. Then, I started to look at newspapers, easy books, etc. Of course, Duolingo.com is my best friend from time to time.

I think that in this way you cannot learn a language. You can learn some words, perhaps phrases, but not language. When learning a language, constant practice is necessary, it is necessary to study grammar, to train dialogues, etc.
