This is just one of several tools I'm using to learn a little Spanish. The music and voices are very pleasant. It's a somewhat passive, yet effective way to pick up new phrases and accustom one's self to accents and proper pronunciation.
My Amazon review may show up here as well...
I am astonished by how much Spanish I'm learning with so little effort. You'll find both the music and voices very pleasant (listen to the sample).
Volume 3 on Audible has a link in the product description to a pdf phrase booklet. To get the pdf booklets for volumes 1 and 2, I went to the Earworms website and signed up for the newsletter thereby gaining access to the downloads. Audible needs to fix that omission.
I'm completely delighted to add this to my learning repertoire and hope that Earworms continues to add to theirs!
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.
