I have to admit, at first I was a little concerned seeing how there was a pasty white guy on the cover. I mean, who wants to learn Spanish from a pasty white guy? And then when I started listening, he spoke with an English accent! However, this was an excellent, excellent program. I highly recommend it. I cannot wait to get the rest of the series. It is very well paced.and offers excellent amounts of repetition. The explanations and tips really enhance your learning ability. Get this program, you will not be disappointed.
Excellent...the thoughtful repetition made it easy to pick up, conjugate & remember. A great way to learn to speak & understand Spanish.
other than Taco Bell visits, I haven't used Spanish in 30 years. I love the method, the ties to English, and the fast takeoff. not sure how well it would work for someone with little or no background but it worked well for me. not starting in simple present tense made sense. my only issue was the volume of the recording...would be great if it was a bit louder. I do this driving to work...sometimes it's hard to hear on the highway. esta fantastico!
This is my first go at a language via audible and I really enjoyed it. easy to follow, great tips and tricks for vocabulary and surprisingly easy to retain. just do it.
Found the narrators pleasant. The phrases were both useful and unusual for an entry level course. Overall, had great pacing - I hardly ever felt rushed when constructing sentences. Words and phrases built on each other nicely. A fun, practical way to learn!
I like the way this book is laid out. You learn in small increments, but always review what you've already learned throughout the program. This helps you remember what you've learned and utilize it in many different ways. I also appreciate that they have both a Latin American and Spaniard doing the translations so you can hear the differences! I purchased the second audio book, so looking forward to learning more!
I loved it I learned how to speak Spanish while walking my dog! I practice at my work and people cannot believe my progress I can't believe my progress! I plan on buying the remainder of the series.
A very good build up on the way the language was taught in pieces or small chunks and then you could build your sentences however many of the words were more if you're going to visit a location versus converse with somebody at home looking forward to the second edition
