This course takes the user to a level of functional fluency, providing an arsenal of versatile and original sentences that will be immediately understood by native Spanish speakers.
Like Spanish Level 1, Spanish Level 2 features both English and native Spanish speaking instructors.

This is probably not for someone new to foreign languages but I felt it was about the right level for learning my second foreign language and I am glad that I did not start with the first level.
The format is set at a good pace, has good enunciation, and the content covered is simple but likely to be effective if visiting a Spanish speaking country. I would recommend other Behind the Wheel language series and am likely to try others myself.
Deals only with South American Spanish making this course pretty inadequate for those wishing to converse with Spanish people. The pace of the course is slow and I would have found it useful to know how many levels there are in the series so that 'Level 2' would have some meaning. Level 2 of 3 levels is quite different to level 2 of 10 levels for example.
"Latin American Spanish and poor quality"
This course is aimed at Latin American Spanish but this is not made clear in the description and so is less useful for those of us wanting a European course. I also found the accents and phrasing (both the American English and Spanish) quite difficult to understand in places and so learning new words was a lot harder. This is really not very well suited for European audiences and has been a waste of money for me.
The accents were not helpful for European use.
Disappointing, the description of the book could be better
