    "This Course Makes It Easy To 'Enjoy The Process'"
    Any additional comments?

    SUPER for practicing your Spanish speaking and conversation skills. But you don’t have to be advanced. This is for intermediate and more advanced students of Spanish. One of the native speakers tells you to Enjoy the Process. You can do just that with this intensive conversation program.

    The program starts out with a section where you just listen to the teacher and to the Spanish speakers. The Spanish speaker talks so fast that I at first thought Oh No I am not going to be able to follow this. But to my surprise and delight the very next section takes the same material and slows it down so that you can repeat after the speaker. The speaker says each sentence three or four times speaking just a little bit faster each time. All you have to do is to try to say each word or sentence at the same speed and with the same pronunciation as the Spanish speaker. You speed up as you go along.

    The whole program is like that. It shows you what it sounds like at normal speed then it slows it down and then speeds it back up a little bit at a time. I was astounded at how that made it pretty easy to able to mimic the native Spanish speaker both in my speed and in my pronunciation. The teacher regularly reminds you to focus on your accent/pronunciation. The final section wraps up the program with a comprehensive review of everything that you’ve learned.

    Beginning language programs have to give you the material in little bitty bites because you know nothing or almost nothing. You are saying the words but at a beginning level it’s hard to feel like you are really speaking the language. This program gives you nice big bites one at a time, but not too big. It makes you feel like you are having a real life conversation in Spanish. Come to think of it you are!

    Power Spanish Conversation Intensive is truly INTENSIVE without being overwhelming. If you listen to this Spanish learning audio program several times your ability to speak Spanish and your confidence in speaking it will increase several fold. This is really SUPER great practice for people who are tired of just repeating simple words and phrases but who want to REALLY START SPEAKING Spanish in a real world way. And who want to Enjoy the Process as they learn.

    "Best Spanish Conversation Program - Buy It!"
    If you could sum up Power Spanish Conversation Intensive in three words, what would they be?

    Fast, Easy, Effective
    I have tried Pimsleur, Living Language, Berlitz, and Rosetta Stone. This program is far better and a bargain for the price.
    Strengths:
    Gets you really speaking conversational Latin American Spanish right away.
    Provides the needed review to let you practice until you get it right.
    Weaknesses
    I haven't found any. Some reviewers don't seem to like repetition, but if you don't over this material in a systematic fashion like they do here, then the program wouldn't be as great as it is.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Power Spanish Conversation Intensive?

    Engaging in live conversation with several different native Spanish speakers at native speed and understanding them and speaking back effectively.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Frobose – was your favorite?

    Mark was excellent. Great deep voice and caring attitude.
    It's obvious that he's very fluent in Spanish and is an experienced instructor.
    I also liked the native Spanish speakers from Mexico and South America.


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

    It made me laugh to think how much money I blew on more expensive programs like Pimsleur, RS, and others which never got me these great results.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't be fooled by glitzy programs that claim to teach you a language overnight.
    Power Spanish Conversation Intensive is the "real deal". It teaches you fast, keeps you motivated, provides the needed feedback, & gives the needed review to actually "master" this material. The airheads out there that want to play the program once and move on are never going to learn to speak a language.
    No pain, no gain. But this pain feels really good because I'm speaking more Spanish now than I ever dreamed possible and my Latino friends are amazed.

    "Love the Challenging Method and Review Practice"
    If you could sum up Power Spanish Conversation Intensive in three words, what would they be?

    This program really allows you to master the basics of conversational Spanish with effective review. The only way to really learn to speak a language is by intelligently practicing it with a great method. This program has the best method I have ever used, and I am really learning to speak Spanish thanks to it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Power Spanish Conversation Intensive?

    When I learned how to ask "Can you tell me what time the plane arrives from ......"
    I use that one every time I travel to Latin America. Also .... "Don't mention it" - No hay de que. And "It's going to arrive really late, right?"
    Very useful for Latin America, believe me.


    What about Mark Frobose’s performance did you like?

    I love the caring way Mark goes the extra mile to explain and review everything.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I am still deeply moved by the fact that I learned so much Spanish.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it and use it. It really works. Don't be afraid to review. As Mark says ... Repetition is the mother of fluency.

    "rip-off .... DON'T BUY!!!!!!!!"

    This is a complete scam. It is NOT "4 hours of accelerated Spanish". It is literally 4 hours of listening to the same 20 sentences over and over and over. I'd sooner have a root canal than listen to this again. I do not exaggerate.

    In case you forget, each chapter begins with credits and copyright information. During the lesson they literally reuse a previous recording many times over. Most of us by now know how to rewind on our own.

    Shame on you, Mark Frobose!

    I'm angry enough about this to send a formal complaint to Audible.
