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.
Linguistics is one of my favorite topics and I have listened to and read many on the topic. I thought this book was going to be a serious study of the history of the alphabet. I was wrong, but more than pleasantly surprised. Each letter of the alphabet is the starting off point for each chapter, but then Michael Rosen takes you on a wonderful trip of language and delight after the serious stuff is over. Michael reads the book in his delightful accent and just has a lot of fun. He is more a comedian and storyteller than an academic - more to his credit. Highly recommend for a fun trip down the alphabet.
