  • "Amazing. This Course Makes Speaking..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend Power Mandarin Accelerated because it's fast, it's amazingly easy, it's enjoyable and really effective.
    My boyfriend's family is from China and I have struggled with Pimsleur (too few words to really communicate) Rosetta Stone (cost a fortune and makes me guess) and other methods.
    None of them gave me the portable audio, the English speaking instructor and the native Mandarin speaker who taught me how to create my own sentences - I mean - speak my own thoughts in basic Mandarin in a way that Chinese people understand and without one bit of confusion.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I like best about Power Mandarin is the speed, the simplicity of it all, the creative way the program is laid out, the memory review, the Audio Snapshot previews, the opportunity to hear the language spoken at different speeds, adding one word here and one word there to avoid overwhelm. Love it!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is where I get to say I want to eat. I love Chinese food. I noticed that this program uses real Mandarin Chinese, because they usually say the word for "eat" followed by the word for "food" or "noodles". This made me sound really fluent even when I wasn't.


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

    No way would I recommend using Power Mandarin all in one sitting. This program is meant to be used whenever you have time and wherever you happen to be at the moment. The extreme portability of Power Mandarin is one reason I wanted to try it out, and for $19.00 bucks, it's a real gem.


    Any additional comments?

    Real instruction, real practice, real results. There's no BS here people. This program is the real deal and you'll thank me for recommending it to you.

  • Power Spanish I Accelerated - 8 One Hour Audio Lessons - Complete Transcript/Listening Guide (English and Spanish Edition)

    "Better Than Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone Combined"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    If you could sum up Power Spanish I Accelerated - 8 One Hour Audio Lessons - Complete Transcript/Listening Guide (English and Spanish Edition) in three words, what would they be?

    I have tried all the major players in the Spanish instruction category. Living Language, Berlitz, Pimsleur, Rosetta Stone.
    Power Spanish Accelerated is by far the fastest and easiest way I have yet found to speak Spanish. I think all the other competitors are just Mark Frobose 'wannabees' because they can't even scratch the surface of what Power Spanish has taught me.
    Here are a few highlights:
    1 The approach. Fun, easy to learn. Fast. Varied. Lots of Spanish speakers.
    2. Tons of vocabulary and then they show you how to put it all together.
    3. Tons of practice. Different angles. Never gets boring.
    4. Tons of review and memory building.
    Pimsleur is a rip-off. They teach you 5 words of vocabulary for one program.
    Rosetta Stone cost a fortune and you're tied to your computer.
    This Power Spanish is dirt-cheap and works like a charm.
    Don't be fooled by negative reviews planted by the competition to keep you away from the best Spanish program ever made. It's obvious they didn't even care enough to listen to the program.
    Buy it and use it. You'll learn to speak Spanish like I did.


    What other book might you compare Power Spanish I Accelerated - 8 One Hour Audio Lessons - Complete Transcript/Listening Guide (English and Spanish Edition) to and why?

    The only program I could begin to compare with the excellent Power Spanish is Behind the Wheel Spanish by Macmillan Audio. Same author. Yep. Mark Frobose was even a consultant for Macmillan Audio and created all their language programs for them.
    The difference is that Power Spanish is far better and more motivating.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Frobose – was your favorite?

    Mark Frobose is a one-of-a-kind language teacher who has been in the language field for around 30 years. I have heard his radio interviews and read his ebooks. I was one of his earliest fans back in the 90's when he began teaching on audio. Now Language Audiobooks is the best and this Power Spanish is great.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh to think that I spent only $19 bucks to really learn Spanish at last.
    I cried when I thought of the small fortune I spent on garbage like Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone and all the other programs out there that just can't compare to this.


    Any additional comments?

    My advice is to realize that the competition in language programs is fierce and that you need to really "review the reviews" for truth. Whenever you see a fine program torpedoed, it's because it's too good for the competition to bear.
    Look .... If you were selling language programs for a fortune and getting a bunch of dummies to buy from you, wouldn't you want to get rid of a fantastic program like Power Spanish that can get you really speaking good Spanish for just $19.00?

  • "Pimsleur Phase 3 French"

    12 of 13 helpful votes

    Took a college french class and no one could understand a work I said in French at the end of the class. This helped me say the words and not worry about spelling or grammar. The french have an annoying way of not pronouncing the end of most words and conjugated verbs all sound alike to me. Pimsleur just put them in sentences I could understand then reviewed them often. This worked out so well I eventually bought Phase 1, 2 and 3. Now I can actually carry on a very basic conversation and understand a fair amount of conversation in french. I did listen to each section every day and sometimes repeated the section. French does not sink into your head automatically, but if you just listen and repeat lessons each day it is pretty amazing what sticks. I did dishes, laundry, went to the market or ran errands while listening. Made boring chores more interesting and learned basic French.
