    What did you love best about Conversational Latin-American Spanish 2?

    Complicated sentences are said more slowly at first and then speeded up to normal talking speed. That makes it much easier to learn and remember the words and say them in the right order.


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

    It's not necessary to listen all at once. You can decide for yourself to listen a little or a lot at one time.


    Any additional comments?

    I am minoring in Spanish in college. Next summer I am going to Mexico City for two months. Part of the program will include Spanish classes at the university there. I can’t wait! I have made good grades in Spanish classes but I know I can’t really speak it yet so I got this Conversational Latin American Spanish audio course. This course takes the head knowledge that I gained from Spanish classes and puts it to use in actual speaking scenarios.

    Right into the first section I was sure that I was in over my head. Then after giving several sentences at normal speed the speakers slowed it down, saying the longer more difficult sentences slowly and then speeding it back up. That’s the way it was throughout the program and I found it a perfect way to learn. You hear how it is said and then it is slowed down for you so that you can learn it and then it is gradually speeded back up to normal talking speed. It’s the perfect way to learn! I’m lovin’ it!

    I listen for a few minutes while I am walking to class and sometimes when I have an hour or so between classes. I listen on the bus when I go downtown to shop. Sometimes I listen at night for fifteen or twenty minutes after I get into bed. I have found that I can listen for five minutes or for forty-five minutes. Sometimes I listen to three or four minutes several times in a row and other times I do a whole section non-stop. It doesn’t matter. You can jump around as much as you want, although I personally recommend that you listen to the entire program from beginning to end the first time through, but you don’t have to do it the first time through all in the same sitting. After you’ve heard it all you can go back and forth and jump around. I have found that a good technique is to blindly run the audio up for a few minutes and then stop it and just start there.

    I know I’m obsessed. But I know that this course will really give me a jump on being able to converse with people while I am learning Spanish in Mexico this coming summer. These great portable audio lessons have taken my Spanish from my brain and put it onto my tongue. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I want them to do a conversational Spanish level 3 so that I can continue to improve after I return.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I am very disappointed that I paid money for a thirty minute introduction, and not one word of Spanish was spoken or taught. There was nothing in the blurb that told me I was buying an introduction. It should have been included in the first lesson rather than a separate audio book. I feel rather ripped off.


    What could Pimsleur have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Don't charge for the instructions, include that in your first lesson


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

    I have no issue with the narrator


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05?

    I think I've made my point


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first poor review I have written but I feel so angry about this that I was compelled to complain

    Would you listen to Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1 again? Why?

    Let me compare this course to Pimsleur, since that is the other well reviewed course out there. Pimsleur is good, first of all. You will learn basic Spanish with it. this is why Collins is soooo much better.
    1. Collins is cheaper.
    2. You learn about 20 times the vocabulary that you do with Pimsleur. I am not joking. Collins uses a very similar method as Pimsleur, but I swear to you they have taken Pimsleur and VASTLY improved upon it. I testify to this based on the experience of 7 people I know who have tried and used both. Count this as 7 reviews.
    3. Collins Teaches you more things you can really use. Did you know that words that end in "ion" in English are basically all identical in Spanish? Now you've just learned about 1000 spanish words. Collins teaches you absolutely incredible language learning tricks like this. PIMSLEUR DOESN'T.
    I could go on and on.
    4. Collings teaches you both Spain and Latin American Spanish at the same time, easily, and without any sweat at all. Pimsleur doesn't. You might think you won't use Spain spanish, but you will need it if you progress at all, because most books use it. Trust me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1?

    I could go on and on about how Collins is better. It is absolutely incredible in every way. I am using it along with Instant Immersion Spanish to teach Spanish to my kids. I would NEVER go back to Pimsleur again. It was a waste of money. thank you, Paul Collins, for the gift you have given us!
