I thought the content was very good and the delivery is concise. The material is good for general Spanish learning, not limited to just conversation skills. However, the speaker is extremely difficult to listen to and understand (especially the phrases) due to her very poor Spanish accent. This could have been a really great resource if a real Spanish speaker had been used to pronounce the Spanish words and phrases.

Focus your Spanish learning on the most frequently used adjectives. Learn just the 100 adjectives you need for everyday life. One of the usual mistakes when learning a foreign language is that the student has no priorities. All the unknown verbs get the same attention. Actually, to communicate you only need 100 adjectives in any language. These adjectives are the most frequently used and can be defined using an algorithm that provides the ranking. In this book you'll find the list.

The material is good value for the price. Speed is a little fast and there is insufficient pauses between phrases. Number of phrases is probably closer to 300-310, not the 600 that is advertised unless you count the translation of a phrase as a separate phrase.

I found two very obvious errors (half kilo v one kilo, one kilo v two kilos). Makes me wonder whether there are more and whether I am learning the wrong things. You would think someone would have done a omce through review before publication.
