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.
In genera, this book is a good reference for those traveling to a Spanish speaking countries. Also for those studying Spanish may found it useful. Still there were three things that I didn't like about this audio:
1- The narrator's voice was loud and kind of sharp.
2- It focuses on Latin Spanish without any mentioning of Spain Spanish.
3- Some times, it waste the time by associating some vocabulary words with an English words or some other thins, which I found unnecessary.
Overall, I cant say I didn't benefited from spending money and time on this audio, as a mater of fact I highly recommend listening to as much as you can on these audios in order to enhance your Spanish.
