    What did you love best about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05?

    Lessons 01-05 were quite easy and I was able to remember everything I learned and apply it to the real world. I shared some of what I learned with a native speaker and I was told that my accent was almost perfect.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05?

    My most memorable moment was when the words just rolled off my tongue when ask a question where I had to respond in Spanish.


    What three words best describe the narrator’s performance?

    Expeditious and succinct.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you try another book from E. L. James and/or Becca Battoe?

    E. L. James yes! Becca Battoe probably not!


    Would you recommend Fifty Shades of Grey to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not with the current narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice of the male part was monotone and flat. One gets the impression that there is a metaphoric stick up her butt.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, because to much would have to be changed or left out.


    Any additional comments?

    Poor intonation by the narrator made listening to this a hard limit for me!
