I have never taken a Spanish class and most of my exposure to the language came from my coworkers at a summer job. I could learn random phrases from them, but I thought Spanish would be difficult to learn because it seems like it's spoken really fast and that masculine/feminine qualities of the words is confusing. I like this audio book because it focuses on learning Spanish vocabulary and doesn't overwhelm beginners to the language by throwing in a bunch of grammar rules. Of course, grammar is an important part of a language, but I think learning the vocabulary is the most daunting aspect of learning a language because it requires a lot of memorization. This audio book makes it easy to remember Spanish vocabulary, even if you've never attempted to learn the language before because the audio is clear and reasonably slow and has adequate pauses in which you can think about and digest each word. It also helps that each word is repeated. However, I think my favorite feature of this audio book is that it emphasizes practical vocabulary, such as words for food, transportation, family, animals, materials, and clothes. These are some of the most practical words someone would need to know when they're trying to converse with another person, so I like that it would be relatively easy to walk around or ride the bus while listening to this audiobook and associate the vocabulary with what you can see around you.
