I've tried listening to podcasts, using apps, and even Rosetta stones Spanish course, but none of them have come close to this in getting me to actually be able to speak Spanish in a functional way.
Paul noble is so good at teaching, he knows and predicts where you might go wrong and corrects your mistakes, almost like having a 1 on 1 session.
It will have you forming full sentences in just minutes, and explain how Spanish words have come into English and visa versa to give you a huge vocabulary instantly. To become fluent you have to purchase the other parts, but this is definitely the best place to start.
good place to start but don't count on being able to understand people when they talk to you.
"Been learning Spanish for a few months"
Been learning Spanish for a few months and this was a great audio book, well worth it
I am finding Spanish difficult but this is a very accessible course, the best I have found so far, especially for the price.
"Surprising how easy I remember things!"
This is my first time learning Spanish and this book really made it easy, just listening in my car on the way to work. I have only listened to Part 1 so far but I have remembered pretty much everything and feel I have enough Spanish to get by on a basic level. On to Part 2!
Just played it in the car each time I drove to work and it's remarkably effective!!!
This is the best language related product I've ever bought. just sit back and relax.
The CD version comes with a booklet so I'm a bit disappointed that audio download does not have a link to download and print that booklet. Other then that I like it.
For context, I've studied Spanish via computer, books, apps, private tutorial, immersion classes and become so utterly dejected (and at times, so acutely frustrated that I've felt a degree of anger) at my inability to pick up the language. It's been a horrid challenge - until now! For her first time, I feel like I am both learning and **retaining** some Spanish. Absolutely thrilled and couldn't recommend Audio Book 1 more highly!
Don't hesitate! Get it! I have loved learning with this method and I recommend it to anyone who has struggled before to learn anything close to a knew language! On to part 2 para me! =D
