    Practice Speed to Native Speed Spanish - Good For Beginning and Intermediate Levels

    This is a very good course for someone who is just beginning a study of Spanish. It is also very useful for someone that has had some classroom experience but who never had much practice speaking it. It would also be great as a good brush up for people that have not used their Spanish for a while.
    All the words and sentences on the audio recording are said clearly. You never have a problem hearing how the Spanish words are pronounced. The Spanish speakers say them at what the narrator calls ‘practice’ speed. The same words are then said at what the narrator calls ‘native’ speed. Saying sentences both ways really makes it easy to learn. There are good tips on accent and pronunciation. And they teach about using nouns and verbs together to form simple but whole sentences. I noted about four different authentic Spanish speakers so you get some variety with the different voices.
    Like I said it’s good practice for beginning learners and even for people at a intermediate level.

    You can learn a lot of Spanish while you are driving in your car, waiting on someone or something, or just relaxing in your easy chair or on your patio.

    This more than five hour audio program makes learning some basic conversational Spanish a lot smoother process than I thought possible. Just a few minutes every day of otherwise wasted waiting time, from any location. Really. That’s all it took for me to learn a lot of useful Spanish.

    Learning quickly from Bite-Sized Spanish has made me realize that my biggest challenge to learning Spanish was never the difficulty. My biggest challenge was time. Bite-sized Spanish solved my time and convenience problem with its short and effective easy-to-learn approach.

    The native Spanish speakers on this audio recording speak in very understandable voices and English explanations and meanings are always provided. It's not too fast either, and it is very easy to follow. I highly recommend you try it.

    "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."

    From minding your Ps and Qs to wondering why X should mark the spot, Alphabetical is a book for everyone who loves words and language. 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.

    More Stories for English is a collection selected with a pedagogical interest in mind... to give new English speakers to listen to in a both interesting and progressive way. It follows Stories for English for developing English speakers. Most learners of English never make it to books or even stories. They either use or don't use their command of English to some extent in the course of their job and leave it at that. All the same, teachers regularly get requests for books from their students, and here is a good start.
