What made the experience of listening to SkyRocket Your Conversational Spanish, Volume 1 the most enjoyable?

The book is packed with useful vocabulary that is presented at a reasonable pace. While the pace if reasonable, the number of vocabulary words per chapter is high. I haven't counted the number of words and phrases but I need to repeat chapters to retain the information (four exposures is typical for storage in memory). I completed all the beginning books I could find and I really needed to expand my vocabulary in a serious way to be able to communicate with native Spanish speakers. This book is definitely helping me achieve my goal and I plan to look for other books in the series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of SkyRocket Your Conversational Spanish, Volume 1?

Rather than memorable I would say the information is highly useful. So many things I try to say appear in the book and I can use this vocabulary in my daily life as well as job as a bilingual teacher.

Which character – as performed by Claudia Retif Barrett and Rebecca María – was your favorite?

I really couldn't say. The native Spanish speaker (male) was slightly harder to understand than the native Spanish speaker (female) but it was good to have exposure to two voice pitches.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, it is almost nine hours and I will repeat each chapter multiple times to master all the vocabulary.
