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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
