    Story

    I honestly did not know what to expect when I bought this book. We have a Spanish speaking maid (from Guatemala) and two kids and I was having a really hard time giving her instructions or understanding what she was saying.
    I searched for a Spanish book for homemakers on Amazon and stumbled upon this book. It's offered both as kindle and as audio book and I thought audio made more sense for me, as I can listen to it while working in the kitchen.
    So I thought I'd buy this book and give it try.
    Frankly, I'm blown away!! I never thought learning Spanish could be so easy!
    After just one half hour into the course, I was already talking in Spanish and the maid seemed to understand everything I was saying.
    It took longer for me to understand what the maid was saying, because she obviously uses a larger vocabulary, but as I progress more thru the course, I'm starting to understand more and more.
    The course does not put too much emphasis on sounding like a native, only as far as is needed to be understood.
    The best part is how each word is introduced in a way that makes it easy to remember.

    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!"

    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 a terrific piece of writing!"

    5 of 5 helpful votes

    Twain's viewpoint on the German language was written a long time ago. He has been one of my favorite writers since I was a child and this is one of his funnier pieces. It is only surpassed by his story about crossing the Platte River near Julesburg CO where I currently live.

    He tells a story about a buffalo climbing a tree after a hunter that makes most people laugh out loud.

    I advocate reading more Twain for the good of your digestive and respiratory system!

    Mark Twain's classic satire on the German language. A must read for anybody learning German or living in a German-speaking country. "The Germans have another kind of parenthesis, which they make by splitting a verb in two and putting half of it at the beginning of an exciting chapter and the other half at the end of it. Can anyone conceive of anything more confusing than that?"

    Sandra says: "This is a terrific piece of writing!"
