I actually downloaded this on a whim, because I had several Audible credits available and I've been wanting to learn Spanish for a while. I typically just let this play while I am working throughout the day. At times I may pay more or less attention to it. Each time I turn it on I start back at an earlier lesson so that I am getting a lot of repetition. So essentially I haven't really even been giving it a huge amount of focus or effort. However, I now find myself thinking of the Spanish translation for things I see. Also, just yesterday I was working with a Spanish family in a volunteer organization I work for. The daughter was translating what I said into Spanish for her parents. They also were carrying on conversations in Spanish among themselves. While I couldn't follow their conversation 100%, I did find that I understood a lot of what they were saying. Like anything else in life, the extent to which this helps you or not likely depends on your own expectations, perspective and motivation. If you try to listen all the way through without repeating any lessons, and think you'll know Spanish at the end....well good luck to you. If you take their suggestions and go back to review lessons you've already listened to, and give yourself reasonable time expectations, I think this is a good tool for learning at least basic Spanish.
Multiple speakers and translations
I attempted listening to this Language Course in my car; however, I could not stay alert enough to grasp what the narrator was relaying. The narration was too fast and I became instantly sleepy while driving. This book is definitely not for beginners or commuters.
Something more action-packed! Maybe a Stieg Larsson novel.
The narrator's voice was so soft, he nearly fell asleep while driving.
I would not listen to this book again.
Just a list of words without any attempt to build a conversation or make it interesting. It was just like someone is reading out load one of these small translation books.
if you want to learn Spanish don't buy this because it won't be enjoyable and you'll ultimately give up. Get a book buy a guy called Paul noble. it's a class beginner course and I actually remember what I learned.
