I only review language programs that are easy, fast, effective, portable, inexpensive & teach you to really speak and understand languages.
Great native speakers from Mexico and Colombia. Interactive approach to Latin-American conversation.
No guessing. Instant English to Spanish. Great retrieval memory technique which greatly enhances learning retention. Very relevant vocabulary for travel, shopping, restaurants, and general purpose traveling or communicating. It’s called ‘Conversational’ for a reason. If you want a lot of grammatical explanations consult a college textbook. The “Conversational Latin American Spanish” audio program teaches talking, not reading. That’s why it’s an audio program. Nothing can take the place of repetition and challenging you to speak with natives when learning a foreign language. This program does much of the review for you. It drills you on previous material at the same time that it is presenting you with new words and phrases. So older material stays fresh in your mind. That is what causes it all to sink in. The more you listen to these lessons the more conversationally comfortable you will become. You're taught how to have real conversations about real things with real Spanish speakers.
I quickly learned to speak a ton of real Mexican Spanish from this unique, fun and effective program. My opinion is that anyone from businesspersons to Spanish language students, from restaurant-goers to travelers considering a trip to Mexico will find “Mexican Spanish Accelerated” to be the essential "icing" on their Spanish learning cake! The fusion of Old World Castilian Spanish from Spain and New World Native languages and cultures of Mexico have given rise to a myriad of unique words and expressions which originated in and are largely confined to Spanish speakers from Mexico.
Mexican Spanish Accelerated contains a lot more than just words and phrases unique to Mexico. Standard, universal sentence-building Spanish phrases like ‘I have to,’ ‘I would like,’ ‘I want,’ ‘I need,’ ‘I am going to,’ and so on, prepare the beginner for fast and original sentence creation and prepare the learner for a great adventure south of the Río Grande – or “El Río Bravo” as they call it in Mexico. A variety of folk expressions are also taught by the narrator and his three or four Mexican instructors who are all educated native speakers of authentic Mexican Spanish.
Both the price of this audio program and the speed at which it teaches you to speak real Mexican Spanish are unbeatable. Spanish language students and vacationers will all benefit from Mexican Spanish Accelerated as much as I did. So click on over to Audible.com, download Mexican Spanish Accelerated, and discover how things are said down Mexico way. Ándale! - Go for it!
As a stressed out professional, I like having someone else do the reading! I read non-fiction and the classics.
I assumed all the advertisements and such were hype, but I have to say, this really worked for me to get a good general working Spanish. I've tried others and Earworms is good for travelers, Rosetta Stone is a flop. This is the best I've tried so far.
