Entertaining, engaging, and educational
I like that the vocabulary was presented before the reading of the story to help me understand better what words to listen for when the story was read. The testing and repetition helps with the retention of new words and application.
The voices are very clear and using different voices helps you focus.
This is great for ongoing learning and to help stay fresh with Spanish skills. It's real confidence builder.
Looking forward to more Spanish books from this author.
This is an ideal audiobook for anyone who has some experience with the Spanish language. It has taken me from a frustrating less than basic level of Spanish to a flowing conversation level. I feel comfortable in most everyday conversations now. It’s motivated me to continue learning to one day reaching fluency in the language.
But accomplishing anything worthwhile takes some work; this audiobook is no exception. The work in this audiobook are the lessons. Just complete them as the author has presented and you will have the same success I have had! Ms. Barrett has the gift of teaching. She presents her lessons in an easy and simple to understand style. After 18 years of schooling, I can recall only a handful of my teachers having that kind of talent.
One last thought, I purchase audiobooks regularly and a key factor for me is the narration. The contents of an audiobook might be fantastic, but if listening to the audio is unpleasant I will reject it; just not bother with it. In this audiobook the content is excellent and so are Claudia Barrett and Rebecca Maria performing the narration; very professional, motivating and pleasant voices that bring the lessons to life!. If you’re serious about boosting your Spanish proficiency to an amazing conversation level, this audiobook will help you get there. I highly recommend it.
This is a grammar and vocabulary book read out loud. Far too tedious for my taste. I gave the performance 3 stars because the readers are satisfactory; it's just the material that's unbearable.
"Not wonderful for a Brit trying to learn Castillian"
The pronunciation and vocabulary appear to be Hispanic rather than Castilian. The choice of vocab is at times bizarre and the translations are not really clear - especially for the idiomatic phrases. The explanation of the pronunciation is inconsistent and at times inaccurate - English approximations are certainly not from British English!
