    Story
    If you could sum up Spanish for the Busy Traveler in three words, what would they be?

    1) Thorough. 2) Basic. 3) Attainable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spanish for the Busy Traveler?

    The first time i was able to have a back and forth conversation with the narrator without any hesitation, It felt great!


    What about Hadassah Davids’s performance did you like?

    She has great command of both languages, her enunciation is clear and authentic. She made the listen easy and entertaining.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Spanish Revolution - Just Listen!


    Any additional comments?

    The interactive lessons really captured my attention and the narrator vastly helped my language skills by teaching me the communication basics and giving me the 'tricks' of the language.I have just one request - please write language courses for French and Italian as well. I would love to be able to learn those languages in this same method.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Spanish for the Busy Housewife to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the course comes to life in this audio version, its actually much better! I used it when jogging in the morning and it has a good rhythm, i was able to keep up for the most part without having to stop.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the authors idea to teach Spanish in a story format, the book is setup with scenes so that it all flows one word into the next, one sentence into the next. I thought the layout was good, but would like to see more time allotted for the listeners to respond, even though i can pause it myself if it goes to fast..


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The story where the Misses insisted the floor be cleaned with sopa, confusing soap with "sopa" which means soup, resulting in the kitchen floor being completely scrubbed with chicken soup!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Spanglish II, Lol


    Any additional comments?

    I found the book helpful in starting a conversation with my house help even though she was in stitches over my accent, but hey you cant have everything, right?!
