    Sing your way to a new language, anytime, anywhere! The new enhanced edition of Rush Hour Spanish includes two audio programs, a bonus music-only version of favorite Rush Hour songs, and a free downloadable word game (see www.berlitzbooks.com for link). Original music and catchy songs help you remember everyday words, phrases, and sentences, and the exciting storyline keeps you involved. Fun to use alone or with your family!

    Overall

    I was excited to buy this book based on the other reviews. I thought I could brush up on my limited espanol and expand my vocabulary. After listening to a CD full of Sesame Street-style, hoky music tunes, I opted to give it a little more time, as it did refresh my memory of how to translate colors, office supplies, clothing, and some other basic vocab.

    Once the audiobook moved on to new vocabulary, though, I was in trouble. The garbled music tunes may have catchy melodies, but if you haven't learned the Spanish words they're using, you can't tell what they are saying. I would rather have a boring CD with someone E-NUN-CI-AT-ING the unfamiliar language. It was like trying to figure out the words to La Bamba without the sheet music: "baraballa la bamba! Sayeseita arrriba arriba!!!" Right?!

    Do yourself a favor and buy a textbook so you can see the words, or find an audiobook that is less fun and more educational.
