Easy to follow along. Not too fast. Not too slow.
Language Gain without Language Pain
I recently received this program from audible and have spent about six hours listening to it over the past couple of days. And I DO know why I am giving it 5 stars. I disagree with the reviewer who said that the narrator’s voice was ‘condescending.’ The narrator is not a professional orator or broadcaster. He is a language teacher and I think the narrator’s tone is simply his attempt to just try to be considerate of the learner and to make the program pleasurable to listen to.
This program has great Latin Americans native Spanish speakers, and is easy to understand and repeat after. It’s a very back and forth approach to conversation, back and forth between you and the teachers. No guessing about meanings. You are always reminded of what the Spanish words and phrases mean in English. You can focus on the new Spanish word without distracting yourself trying to remember what the English translation is.
Lots of vocabulary that is good for shopping, eating, and just getting around in a Spanish speaking country. It mixes stuff you already learned with new stuff so that you are reviewing previous things at the same time that you are moving on to something new.
I’m very happy with this audio program and I still have a couple more hours to go.
Very helpful to for learning to converse with ease
I bought this audio program called Conversational Latin American Spanish 1. It is much better than a cd program I bought from another company years ago. It is not dry and boring like the first one tended to be. The speakers used on the program are easy to understand and copy when you are repeating what they are saying. That is the greatest thing about it for me. I appreciate the consideration that the developer of this program gives to the learner in explaining the details of Spanish and having the native Spanish speakers repeat at different speeds. The native Spanish speakers say things slowly and then at normal speed. That is such a great help in learning to speak correctly. You can’t learn to say things right if you can’t understand what is being said. You CAN understand with these speakers on this program. They teach a lot of words and phrases about a lot of different topics. The direct conversation practice really helps in learning to speak comfortably. It is all very useful if you go to any country where Spanish is spoken. As you learn the material you are also learning how to use it. That makes it fun to learn and makes you want to keep learning more.
I only review language programs that are easy, fast, effective, portable, inexpensive & teach you to really speak and understand languages.
Great native speakers from Mexico and Colombia. Interactive approach to Latin-American conversation.
No guessing. Instant English to Spanish. Great retrieval memory technique which greatly enhances learning retention. Very relevant vocabulary for travel, shopping, restaurants, and general purpose traveling or communicating. It’s called ‘Conversational’ for a reason. If you want a lot of grammatical explanations consult a college textbook. The “Conversational Latin American Spanish” audio program teaches talking, not reading. That’s why it’s an audio program. Nothing can take the place of repetition and challenging you to speak with natives when learning a foreign language. This program does much of the review for you. It drills you on previous material at the same time that it is presenting you with new words and phrases. So older material stays fresh in your mind. That is what causes it all to sink in. The more you listen to these lessons the more conversationally comfortable you will become. You're taught how to have real conversations about real things with real Spanish speakers.
I would highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to learn to speak real conversational Spanish. What I mean by "real" is the way Spanish speaking Latin Americans really talk.
So many programs I have tried just don't give you this kind of true life practice. With Conversational Latin American Spanish, they have several native speakers, all with different accents, and they let you join in with them, repeat, practice. review ..... I really learned fast from this approach and never got bored once.
What I like best is the way the program starts out slow, lets you listen to the Spanish, gives you the meanings in English, lets you listen and repeat slowly in Spanish, and then hits you with it faster and faster until you're at native speed.
Then they are kind enough to ask "Did you get that?". Most of the time I did not get it.
Then they give it to you slowly one more time. Then fast again.
This is a great way to learn to speak any language.
My favorite scene is where I learn to say "I am from the United States" and then I learn to tell people I am American. I am from the United States, and then I learn to add to all of it to sound natural and really communicate in Spanish.
Understand conversational Spanish for the first time in your life, and then actually learn to speak it too. First slowly, then medium, then at native speed. And remember it too.
You get lots of chances to make mistakes and get it right. You practice over and over, but it never gets boring.
Compare this method, which allows you to repeat at different speeds, with a memory technique that lets you bring it all back from memory.
