  • Conversational Latin American Spanish - 8 One Hour Audio Lessons (English and Spanish Edition)

    Expert language teacher Mark Frobose talks you through the program in English while several trained native Latin American Spanish speakers teach you conversational Spanish the way it is really spoken. This highly acclaimed method is so easy and so fast that you'll be speaking Spanish within minutes of receiving your program and enjoying the process.

    This is my second audiobook to learn Spanish. The voices sound robotic and the words used are very US-centric.

    Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was a Viking hero - dashing, brave, and ever so hairy. But even Viking heroes have to begin somewhere.... Toothless has been captured, the nanodragon is about to be gobbled, and Sharkworms are on the loose. Once again we are relying on Hiccup to be a hero.

    Avocat says: "David Tennant's narration makes this worth the $$!"
    "Great book, love Tennant."

    This is a great continuation of the adventure but some of the action and gore may be more suited to older listeners.

    Here is a collection of four delightful dragon stories by two master writers for children: "The Reluctant Dragon" by Kenneth Grahame and "The Island of the Nine Whirlpools", "The Fiery Dragon", and "The Last Dragon" by Edith Nesbit. Presented with lively music and even the occasional amusing sound effect.

    Carol says: "BEST Reluctant Dragon"
    "Great stories for a variety of ages."

    The first story was very wordy with lots of long words maybe more suitable to 10+ listeners but the last 2 stories were lovely and great for 6+.

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    It all begins when Carey, Charles, and Paul are sent away to stay with their old aunt in a Bedfordshire village. It looks like an uneventful summer is ahead, until the day they find Miss Price sitting in the garden. She, it turns out, is studying to be a witch and takes the children on a series of adventures via a flying bed. They visit a London police station and a tropical island, and go back in time to the 17th century.

    Judy says: "Charming British Fantasy"

    Starts of great but then becomes about the witch's love interest. My 6 yr old found it very boring.

    Whoopi Goldber's story of the Djinn.

    Yes!
