    I am really glad I purchased this Power Spanish audio program. There are a lot of lessons in these 8 hours of audio teaching. A lot of vocabulary words and phrases are used. They are all used in sentences so you are not just learning a list of words you are also learning how to apply them to conversations. That’s why it is not at all boring. It is cheery and moves along and keeps your attention.

    Words and sentences used in beginning sections are sprinkled into later sections along with the new lessons so you can review the earlier things without having to always be reversing the audio. That is obviously done on purpose to help you review. It is very helpful.

    There are several Spanish speakers so there is a variety of voices that you hear. The approach helps you build confidence a little at a time as you learn to speak Spanish gradually. I also like that the Spanish speakers say the words and sentences kind of slowly and then faster. That makes it a lot easier to understand what they are saying and to pronounce everything right.

    I have listened to this once all the way through and again more than half way through. I have learned enough so far that I can definitely say that it has been time and money well spent.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You don't listen all in one sitting.You listen to as little or to as much as you want to at one time. You can skip around in the lessons, too.


    Any additional comments?

    I learned quite a bit of useful Spanish from this program. Some words I already knew but what was most valuable to me about these lessons was the way the speakers said sentences kind of slow at first and then said them again faster at a regular speaking rate. I don’t have much trouble learning new vocabulary words in Spanish but I get tongue tied when I try to speak them, especially several words fast one right after the others. But when the Spanish is all said at a slowed down pace like with this program, and then speeded up, it makes it a lot easier to get used to speaking Spanish like it is really spoken. This teaching process really worked for me and I learned to speak much better Spanish from it.

    A lot more than one hour of dialog is given, and the conversation that is presented is long and multi-faceted, but it is fortunately, broken down into digestible bits that can be practiced and understood. This is extremely helpful to the learner who comes in from nowhere and hears a lot of Spanish spoken at native speed that sounds like unintelligible "gibberish" unless it is deciphered and explained.

    It might be a little hard for a complete beginner but if you have some Spanish experience in your background, like a semester or two back in school, then you’re probably at the right level for this audio program. Your ability to speak in Spanish will definitely get better fast.

  • Spanish Phase 2, Unit 01-05: Learn to Speak and Understand Spanish with Pimsleur Language Programs

    "I'd rate it higher but materials are missing ....."

    Overall

    I've been through all of the Phase 1 and found them quite useful. The only problem I've had in buying these courses (I buy the 5 units at a time) is that Audible doesn't provide the PDF reading exercises that are part of the lessons. I tried calling Pimsleur and they said that it was Audible's responsibility to provide the PDFs that are part of the course. In contacting Audible, all the customer service staff will do is give me links to the reference guide (a general description of how the 'Pimsleur Method' works) which are NOT the reading exercises that are supposed to be included with the lessons.
    So Pimsleur won't help me because they say Audible (the one I bought all the courses from) *should* have the PDF reading and vocabulary exercises - between a 'rock and a hard place' on this one. My only suggestion is maybe one has to order directly from Pimsleur to actually get everything that is *supposed* to be included with these lessons.

  • "Enjoyable - and the PDF file is ind..."

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    "Alphabetical" is a pleasant read/listen, and, unlike many books about linguistics, seems well grounded in actual facts. Author Michael Rosen reads it marvelously in his British-but-not-posh accent. With this book you get an interesting and educational, if not very profound, look at alphabets and other phonetic/linguistic phenomena.

    By the way, Rosen tells the reader to consult "the PDF" several times for written examples of alphabets, etc., which he refers to. This file can be found on the Audible.com page for this audiobook, at the end of the Publisher's Summary. Just click where it says "Download the accompanying reference guide."

Whether it's how letters are arranged on keyboards or Viking runes, textspeak or zip codes, this book will change the way you think about letters forever. How on earth did we fix upon our 26 letters? What do they really mean? And how did we come to write them down in the first place? Michael Rosen takes you on an unforgettable adventure through the history of the alphabet in 26 vivid chapters, fizzing with personal anecdotes and fascinating facts.
