      "Best language instruction out there bar none!"
      What did you love best about Michel Thomas Method?

      The method works amazingly well. I love the two students, they make me feel smart as all heck! The tone is just fine, it is loud to make you stop and figure out what to say; it makes you stop and think.

      What I love is that is a few minutes Michel proves to you that you know a lot of Spanish words already just by converting hundreds of words to their similar Spanish pronunciation!


      What was one of the most memorable moments of Michel Thomas Method?

      When in just a few minutes of listening I ended up creating 15 and more word long sentences. This totally builds confidence and shocks me with how much I really already know.


      Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

      Shocked me into realizing I actually could become fluent in Spanish!


      Any additional comments?

      I will buy the whole Spanish series and when I finish I am going to learn Mandarin Chinese with Michel!!!

      "Not Suited for the Ear"

      Alas, the tone directing listeners to turn off listening devices and practice the phrase is much too loud. But the audio needs to be high enough to catch small details of pronunciatiation. This single production failure makes the program worthless to me.
      Additionally, I don't like hearing other student errors. I'd rather hear other competent speakers.

      "Great, going to buy the full version."
      If you could sum up Michel Thomas Method in three words, what would they be?

      Easy as 1,2,3


      What was one of the most memorable moments of Michel Thomas Method?

      Being able to say the whole sentence at the end and remembering days later without trying :D


      What three words best describe Michel Thomas’s performance?

      Confident, relaxing and reassuring


      Any additional comments?

      At first I thought I would struggle with Michel Thomas's performance as I thought he might be difficult to understand. After listening a few times I found him to be relaxing and this made it easier for me to learn. You feel like you are all sat in a room together just having a chat. I tried to learn Spanish twenty years ago when working in the USA and Caribbean but found it too fast past. We are moving to florida next year so I want to learn again, after listening to the sample I feel confident that with the full version I can be fluent by next year.

      Story
      "Good intro into method"
      Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

      This is more an overview of the method and background to this approach rather than a 20-minutes of practice/have-a-go opportunity. The majority of the other language taster downloads from Michel Thomas are the same.It is very good at explaining the method but I think that could have been demonstrated for 20-minutes rather than talked about.


      What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

      The method itself, finding similar or familiar words.


      Which character – as performed by Michel Thomas – was your favourite?

      N/a


      Did Michel Thomas Method inspire you to do anything?

      I have used some vouchers I had to purchase the French set.

      "Spanish by Michel Thomas"

      This sample is excellent. I would like to buy the full course but can't find it when I search on the Audible site.Why offer the sample if the actual course isn't available?

      "Michel Thomas Method: Spanish Course Sample"

      Very easy to follow and gives a sense of early understanding and progression. Learning a new language seems achievable and I will definitely purchase the course and become proficient in Spanish!
