Spanish for Travelers: A Learning Journal is a beautifully designed and innovative self-study guide for people visiting Spanish-speaking countries.
The book features a series of interactive, self-directed lessons on Spanish for a specific purpose: to increase readers’ communication with and connection to the Spanish-speaking world while traveling in it.
Readers will learn vocabulary words, basic grammar, common questions and answers, short dialogues, and local expressions that will help them become more independent travelers.
The book is divided into eight chapters that target Spanish for different aspects of traveling, including preparing and packing for a trip, introducing yourself, transportation, shopping, and, of course, eating.
Each chapter encourages readers to customize their learning journey through the use of practice space for listing new foods that were tried, places visited, new words learned, and other highlights.
We wanted to write a book that could teach Spanish for your specific needs, but to give you the opportunity to add your own learning experiences. At the same time, we wanted to create a place that can help you see your learning progress.
To achieve this, we will work in different areas of interest and need, so that the topics to be addressed are of full relevance to you, and will help to increase learning motivation and awareness of the usefulness of learning Spanish as a second language.
Spanish for Travelers will be focused on you through a self-study format and on communication over grammar, thus facilitating your learning process and making it much more meaningful, close, and motivating for you.
We know that traveling is not the only way to learn Spanish. Maybe you're learning from home, which is an adventure on its own. This is why we designed the book in a way that looks attractive and will add style to your bookshelf.
Spanish for Travelers will accompany the reader through their traveling experiences with beautiful illustrations and a travel-themed layout.
We designed a high-quality book that will accompany you wherever you go. We paid attention to details and worked to craft a product that will be comfortable to use and long-lasting.
Spanish for Travelers: A Learning Journal will be the best traveling companion you'll ever have. Beautifully designed and filled with useful activities and vocabulary, the book will help you be a more independent traveler.
A set of five postcards featuring illustrations from the book. A great way to share your travel experiences with friends and family!

Risks and challenges
We have been working on Spanish for Travelers for over a year to ensure a high-quality product and very low risk. Before starting the Kickstarter campaign, we made sure our project was ready to be sent to print.
We have spent several months learning about book manufacturing, and because of this, we have found an American printer with the experience and capability to fulfill the demand for the book. Our campaign is also powered by Backerkit, a team of awesome people helping us with backer management.
If our campaign is successfully funded, we will commit ourselves to delivering a high-quality product and communicating transparently. Our main goal is to make sure that Spanish for Travelers is in your hands and we will work hard to achieve that goal.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
