Publisher's Summary

Conversational Spanish: Intermediate Collection 2

Intended for Students with a Basic to Intermediate Level of Spanish

Get fluent with Fluent Penguin™ language learning tools. Designed for self-taught language learners, Fluent Penguin picks up where Pimsleur™ and Rosetta Stone™ leave off. By exposing you to a wide variety of translated conversations in everyday situations, Fluent Penguin builds your vocabulary and intuitive recognition of grammar, sentence structure, and idiomatic phrases.

Modeled after the proven and effective Pimsleur™ method of language learning, Fluent Penguin conversational collections employ context-driven recall techniques to help you anchor new vocabulary and phrases to the situations in which you will use them. All lessons are in audio format and use subtle repetition and meaningful associations to maximize retention of new information.

Each collection consists of conversations about common topics, ranging from work scenarios to current events, leisure activities, and travel. Each statement in a conversation is first narrated in English then spoken by native voice actors in a variety of Mexican, European, Central, and South American Spanish accents. Time is provided after each statement for you to repeat aloud and hone your pronunciation.

Conversation lessons range from 30 to 50 minutes in length. The following conversational topics are introduced in Conversational Spanish: Intermediate Collection 2:

  • What do you want to do tonight?
  • What should I study?
  • Where are you from?
  • The doctor's appointment
  • Day of the Dead

Voices fluctuate and sound echoes

I liked the idea of the Spanish conversations and the opportunity to listen slowly and repeat; however the female voice in particular was very hard to understand at some points and sounded as though it was recorded in an echo chamber. I understand these are supposed to be actual conversations in the native language, but when the words are slurred over so that the listener can't understand, it's very hard to learn the vocabulary. I would like a more clear pronunciation of the Spanish at least when the conversation is slowed down.

Very helpful

Listening to this on my commute has been great. easier for me to remember how to say things, versus reading.

Good for the price

Some of the audio has an echo or is of lower quality than most of the audio books I own. Some translations seem to be a little off. Maybe it's a good test of my comprehension, at least I can grasp the difference between pimsleur lessons and this. I'm sure that different regions speak differently.

Great practice

I am lower intermediate and this was a great workout. Ideal for travel. I listen to it during commutes. Not too trivial and can be used multiple times without getting bored.

good continuation of the series

Would you listen to Conversational Spanish: Intermediate Collection Two again? Why?

yes, i think this is one that is good to review every now and then for practice

What does Eric Fallah bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

the narrators are great - the male and female spanish voices are very clear and understandable, and helped a lot with recognizing subtle differences in pronunciation

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

like with the first, i like the moment when the conversation breakdown is done, and you start listening to it at a normal speed, and it actually makes sense!

Any additional comments?

i do wish these were a little longer
