Publisher's Summary

You're about to discover over 1,000 Spanish verbs exemplified in Spanish and English sentences.

Learning a new language is never an easy task, but it doesn't have to be hard. By learning the 1,000 most-used verbs in a language, you give yourself a fantastic foundation to start building upon to your road to fluency.

In my book, 1,000 Spanish Verbs in Context, I give you over 1,000 of the most common Spanish verbs used today. You are given the verb in Spanish and English with examples of the verb in a sentence, also in Spanish and English: No more confusion about how to use the verb. On thousand words is a perfect number to aim for. It is important to give yourself goals to stay motivated and to keep yourself learning.

Imagine if you learned 10 words a day: five in the morning and five at night. After only 100 days (that's just over three months) you would have access to 1,000 verbs in your vocabulary. That really is quite a lot, and it would give you an excellent grasp of the language. Far too many people expect to be speaking a new language far too quickly without putting in the time or effort. As a language teacher, I can testify to seeing this too many times. I can also say that by exposing yourself to a new language daily, you will surely learn it.

It does take time and effort, but 10 words a day will give you a massive boost. If you prefer a slower pace, then you could set yourself different goals. The key to learning new vocabulary is to see it in context - that means in use. Seeing how a word is used will help you remember it better. It is also important to understand how that word should be used in a sentence.

As a free bonus I have included the top 100 most-used words in Spanish. Yes, I really want you to learn this beautiful language.

    "GREAT-VALUE SPANISH!"
    Any additional comments?

    I’ve chosen to review “1000 Spanish Words in Context”, and “1000 Spanish Verbs in Context” because the two work really well together, and because you ought to buy both of them. The 1000 Spanish Word sentences all contain verbs, and the 1000 Spanish Verb sentences all contain vocabulary words. Taken together, that’s over 2200 sentences of practical Spanish dialog.

    It’s easier and more interesting to listen to Spanish vocabulary in sentences, and what you hear sticks with you much better. The Spanish-speaker does an excellent job of conveying the emotional content of the sentences, and emotional content is a powerful force for learning and remembering.

    Most courses in Spanish like to indulge themselves in what they call, “spaced repetition.” That is, they spend a lot of time going back and repeating material you’ve already covered. This is supposed to help you remember better. The result is they may sell you a 4-hour course, but only 1-hour is new material - the other 3-hours is a rehash of what you’ve already covered.

    The Alex Forero books are different. Each of the 2200 sentences is unique, although they all draw on a (large) common inventory of Spanish verbs and vocabulary words. Due to the concentrated nature of the material, you won’t be able to go through it as quickly as you would a less concentrated course. But you’ll learn a lot more. You can replay the recordings as often as you like, being confident that you’ll continue to learn more Spanish as you do so.

    The sentences use a lot of different constructions, so you’ll get a lot of practice with Spanish grammar along with the vocabulary you’re learning.

    There are a couple of things about the books and recordings I would have changed. To begin with, the Spanish sentence comes first, followed by an English translation. I would have preferred the English first, so that we could make a stab at our own translation, and then we could listen to the Spanish-speaker. This would help us with our sentence formation and pronunciation.

    Also, in “1000 Spanish Words” (but not in “1000 Spanish Verbs”), the Spanish word is given, followed by the English translation, followed by the Spanish sentence, followed by the English sentence. I found this boring and repetitious. I would have much preferred that “1000 Spanish Words” follow the same pattern as “1000 Spanish Verbs”, where the Spanish sentence is printed with the highlighted word in bold type. It’s easy enough to figure out the meaning of the word from the English that follows.

    "Practice your Spanish"
    What did you like best about 1000 Spanish Verbs in Context? What did you like least?

    I liked the variety of Spanish sentences that were covered. However, whereas the audiobook "1000 French Verbs In Context" tells you a French verb with its English translation BEFORE giving you a full French sentence, the Spanish audiobook just gives you a bunch of sentences in Spanish. I THINK THIS WAS A MISTAKE, because it makes it significantly harder to understand/learn the Spanish content of each sentence


    Would you be willing to try another book from Alex Forero? Why or why not?

    Yes-if it followed the format of the French version


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Michelle León?

    Yes-she has a pleasant voice


    Could you see 1000 Spanish Verbs in Context being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No-not at all!

    "Horrible"

    This is so lame. This made no sense. The order was all mixed up and taught me nothing.

    "Great refresher"
    Any additional comments?

    I am an advanced speaker of Spanish but a non-native. For me this audiobook served as a great refresher for the 1,000+ verbs it covers.

    There are several ways to us most verbs, so this audiobook really was great practice. Although I did already know the majority of the verbs, there were many times that I caught myself thinking "Ah, I didn't know that I can also use that verb in that particular way." Or "Oh yeah, I know that verb. I need to use it more when I'm speaking Spanish in order to diversify my vocabulary." There were also many times that I clicked the "Go back 30 seconds" button in order to contemplate what I had just heard and try to commit the previous sentence(s) to memory. Repetition is important, so I recommend other listeners also do this.

    All in all, this was an excellent audiobook. I am considering also buying the print edition of the book so that I can go through the material again for further practice.

    Note:
