The Learn in Your Car language series is the first system ever designed to teach a language in your car...or anywhere...without a textbook. Simple and effective, you can learn to converse in another language while driving, walking, or doing tasks around the house. And now with Learn in Your Car, you can turn your PC, your Rio, or any mobile device into your own personal language tutor.
Each course is organized the way you learn best - by learning words and phrases - and building these into sentences and clear conversations. Arrange hotel accommodations, order in restaurants, change money, and feel more at home next time you travel!
The Learn in Your Car language series is:
Level 1 offers an introduction to key words, numbers, phrases, sentence structure, and basic grammar.
Level 2 teaches more challenging vocabulary, additional grammar, and targeted sentences designed to generate confidence in your ability to comprehend and converse.
Level 3 presents expanded vocabulary, advanced grammar, and more detailed sentences to extend your conversational skills.

"This is a very well organized, step-by-step teaching system. Correct grammar usage comes very easily this way." (Marie-Martine Besso, Language Consultant)
"I can honestly say the Learn in Your Car series really works!" (Marshall Tate, San Jose, CA)
Started learning Spanish with this. It is good while I work as a car salesman. I can listen to it while I wait for customers to come in many of whom are Spanish!
Format is made up of an English sentance followed by it being translated in Spanish twice. This format makes learning easy as you are taking small bytes of info at a time. . However as there are no long conversatioins I found I needed more material to practice my Spanish as so am learning from "Spanish without the fuss" by Living Language.
I tried Barons and found it too much immersion as I did not know what was being said
The spanish speaker speaks too fast and the tape is too advanced with many tenses a beginner would not use. I wanted to extend my vocabulary after level one and this just does not do it.
I already had some of the other Penton CDs and was happy with the pace and the quality of instruction. Learn in Your Car: Spanish, Level 2 is no exception. The problem is that the Audible tool does not allow you to browse between lessons, so you can't select a specific lesson that you want to study over again.
I do not recommend this series. The Spanish speaker speaks so quickly it's hard to understand what he's saying. The booklets are great and the English speaker is fine, but there is not enough explanation and, again, the Spanish speaker os so bad as to make this series completely useless.
This is not for beginner, but if you want to understand spanish people, you have to get used to people speaking fast, and this speaker is good. Also, it has an excellent vocabulary bank compared to other courses. It is a good complement for the Pimsler spanish. The only annoying think is the music between chapters.
You can learn Spanish in your car, and they move slowly enough that you can follow it. They give the English sentence, and then repeat the Spanish sentence twice, allowing time for you to repeat it. They also introduce words slowly so you can increase your vocabulary. For example, "I sold my car." "You sold your house on the beach." "You (formal) sold my things." ... So you pick up vocabulary. Also, by the time you move through all 3 sets (3 hours each), you will have covered 4 tenses (present, past (preterite), past imperfect, and future. Because the speaker always speaks complete sentences, you learn the order of sentences in Spanish without thinking about it. I can listen to these over and over to help improve, as I do not practice speaking in Spanish as much as I would like.
I highly recommend this language set.
My Level One is a cassett version which includes a listeners guide. I use the guide to keep track of where I am and to clarify anything that I don't hear distinctly. I miss the guide in audible Level Two.
This program worked well for me in Level One so I expect to learn with Level Two as well.
Very clear pronounciation.
I am fairly new to using my kindle. I decided to use it for this particular publication because I expected the kindle to accommodate audio along with a display of the listeners guide. My mistake but someone else might benefit from my experience.
There are some negative reviews here that I think are really unjustified, all of which have to do with the (really quite medium) pace of the speakers. For someone with a little Spanish under their belt this will probably provide nice drill practice at a realistic cadence. Book 2 specializes in past tenses and pronouns, with a few short dialogs thrown in on things like using the telephone. There is no explanation and the dialog is mostly disjoint sentences that they speak and expect you to follow. If you don't like the drill format or you want Spanish described, I can see why you would not like this book. However, for what it is the book is well done.
This is very good rote/repetition, done clearly and slowly. Good for practicing pronunciation as well.
I agree with the other reviewers, the Spanish speaker speaks too quickly. I speak poor "tourist" Spanish and had two years in school, but he lets his syllables run together (as in common with native/fluent speakers) such that I couldn't pick up one word from the next. Too hard to follow.
