    SUPER for practicing your Spanish speaking and conversation skills. But you don’t have to be advanced. This is for intermediate and more advanced students of Spanish. One of the native speakers tells you to Enjoy the Process. You can do just that with this intensive conversation program.

    The program starts out with a section where you just listen to the teacher and to the Spanish speakers. The Spanish speaker talks so fast that I at first thought Oh No I am not going to be able to follow this. But to my surprise and delight the very next section takes the same material and slows it down so that you can repeat after the speaker. The speaker says each sentence three or four times speaking just a little bit faster each time. All you have to do is to try to say each word or sentence at the same speed and with the same pronunciation as the Spanish speaker. You speed up as you go along.

    The whole program is like that. It shows you what it sounds like at normal speed then it slows it down and then speeds it back up a little bit at a time. I was astounded at how that made it pretty easy to able to mimic the native Spanish speaker both in my speed and in my pronunciation. The teacher regularly reminds you to focus on your accent/pronunciation. The final section wraps up the program with a comprehensive review of everything that you’ve learned.

    Beginning language programs have to give you the material in little bitty bites because you know nothing or almost nothing. You are saying the words but at a beginning level it’s hard to feel like you are really speaking the language. This program gives you nice big bites one at a time, but not too big. It makes you feel like you are having a real life conversation in Spanish. Come to think of it you are!

    Power Spanish Conversation Intensive is truly INTENSIVE without being overwhelming. If you listen to this Spanish learning audio program several times your ability to speak Spanish and your confidence in speaking it will increase several fold. This is really SUPER great practice for people who are tired of just repeating simple words and phrases but who want to REALLY START SPEAKING Spanish in a real world way. And who want to Enjoy the Process as they learn.

    If you could sum up Spanish Sentence Magic in three words, what would they be?

    Spanish Sentence Magic is required listening for anyone who wants to learn Spanish fast. (I think that's more than 3 words. Sorry.)


    Any additional comments?

    I think that Spanish Sentence Magic should be REQUIRED LISTENING in every high school or college level one and level two Spanish class.

    Here's an English example of how this great Spanish sentence building program would work if you were learning English: It teaches you / It teaches you to speak / It teaches you to speak and understand / It teaches you to speak and understand Spanish. Language Audiobooks does it in increments. In easy-to-understand building blocks that you can customize yourself for original communication in Spanish.

    There is a very clear explanation of what is coming up right at the beginning. Immediately you start to make short but complete original sentences that cover dozens of topics: eating, sleeping, wanting, liking, doing, going, and so forth. Building on these simple, concise sentences (I want to eat, I want to go, I want to order, I want to do, and so on) the teachers then lengthen them: I want to speak with you; I want to do it now/right now/later; I want to see/I want to see something new; I would like to eat/I would like to eat something else. With simple nouns and verbs as your sentence foundation you are taught to add words and phrases so that you can say longer and more sophisticated sentences. Your own sentences. The words are phrases that you learn all apply to a wide variety of real life conversation situations.

    Language Audiobooks also puts out a program called POWER SPANISH CONVERSATION – INTENSIVE. The INTENSIVE program is a perfect follow-up to this Spanish Sentence Magic program. I was a little afraid that the INTENSIVE program might be too much for me, but Spanish Sentence Magic prepared me well enough to be able to handle the INTENSIVE program pretty well. Feel free to read my review of the POWER SPANISH CONVERSATION - INTENSIVE audio program. In the meantime, if you are not already at a strong intermediate or at an advanced level you should get this Spanish Sentence Magic program right away.
