    Would you consider the audio edition of Power Spanish I Accelerated - 8 One Hour Audio Lessons - Complete Transcript/Listening Guide (English and Spanish Edition) to be better than the print version?

    Yes - I bought these CDs from Amazon and have been extremely happy with this purchase. Use it in my car and listen while driving. Am now more comfortable talking in Spanish or ordering in restaurants than I have ever been. I'd been trying to learn from books and Rosetta Stone, but none gave me the confidence to speak in Spanish like these tapes have.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mark Frobose and the native speakers are all favorite characters of mine. They do a great job of keeping the tempo upbeat and me motivated. The "listen and repeat" exercises are simple and practical – they are not only helping me speak and pronounce correctly but have also increased my response time to answer in Spanish tremendously. There is a nice pace throughout and repetitive nature of the exercises makes it easy to recall and improve.


    Have you listened to any of Mark Frobose’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listed to any of Mark Frobose's other tapes ..but now that I have listened to Part 1, I am looking forward to Part II of the series


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I guess the biggest "aha" moment for me when I Mark broke up Spanish into simple usable high frequency phrases that I could begin to use immediately. This happened from the first CD itself.


    Any additional comments?

    If I had known these CD’s would help me so much, I'd have bought the set sooner. Thank you Mark - you are a great teacher and hopefully you will make more such audio books..as you are doing a great service helping adults like me learn new languages.

    "I've tried several ways and this is the best!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I've wanted to learn Spanish for years. I took two years in school and recall beginning to think in Spanish. I know that should be an indication that I have some aptitude, but all it and those years amounted to later was knowing what the Taco Bell dog said before reading the subtitle. I've tried every book and audio book that my library had to offer. I've spent $150 on a DVD set that promised great things. I was doing research on the best price for Rosetta Stone when I stumbled onto this method. Since I'd tried audio books before, I was skeptical, but since using credits on Audible made it such a great price, I decided to try it. And I have been surprised at the easy results! Because this method uses only audio, I'm not hampered by years of training in English pronunciation. Now instead of trying to fit the H into hablo, I hear it as "ablo". As the mother of a four-year-old, I understand the need to learn to speak before reading and writing. That doesn't mean that I can't learn to read it later, just as my son is learning to read English despite our idiosyncrasies. There is a free sample with the introduction and first lesson on Audible. Try it and you'll see.

    "Still the best I've found!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I've just finished unit 10 and am still in awe of how much better this system is than what I've tried before (high school Spanish, other audio tapes, and DVD lessons). My accent is MUCH better since I'm not trying to fit the English pronunciation onto the Spanish spelling. I've even started to roll my R's despite my high school teacher having written me off as a lost cause in that regard. Yesterday I sat next to a Spanish-speaking family in a restaurant and actually understood some of what they said. Judging by the pace of new words introduced, I feel confident that with four phases available, I'll be fluent enough to really consider myself a Spanish speaker once I finish them. And as I progress through the levels, I have yet to feel overwhelmed. New words are introduced at just the right places, while old words are reinforced. If you're reading this and trying to decide if it's worth trying, my advice is YES!

    This is just one of several tools I'm using to learn a little Spanish. The music and voices are very pleasant. It's a somewhat passive, yet effective way to pick up new phrases and accustom one's self to accents and proper pronunciation.
