No Reading Required
An English-speaking narrator guides you through 35 short lessons. Just listen and repeat after native Spanish speakers.
Vocabulary, Grammar, Dialogue, and Culture
Begin with vocabulary and grammar basics before hearing a lively dialogue that includes the most current Spanish idioms and usage. Interactive exercises reinforce what you've learned. You'll also learn some intriguing facts about Spanish customs and culture.
This is like reading a book of grammar rules. Very comprehemsive and authoritative, but it provides no structured rehearsal of the material being presented. One could listen ten times without increasing their ability to speak Spanish.
If you already speak at an advanced level, this is a quick review. Don't expect to learn to speak from this program.

For a beginner, it was too difficult to understand what the spanish speakers were saying. If there were a downloadable book with it, then it may have been more useful. It goes very fast as well, and has very little time to rehearse or review.

This is a quality product. It moves along a bit to quick for me. I've had to go back and listen to the track and practice many times. The track does teach the technical side of spanish. If you are into learning proper spanish then this audio book will definately help! This is not a complete learning spanish guide but it will get you off to a good start if you have the time to listen and practice multiple times. Overall rating is average but this is a quality product.

Listened for about 15 min and was completely turned off. Too hard to follow. Stick with Pimsleur.

First, this is a single 80 MB file, so good luck fitting it into your iPod. Also, good luck skipping to the next lesson - there are no chapter breaks either.

This title was accurate in it's grammar and presented the material as promised but I found it difficult to follow along with the format. I listened to the first hour and a half and haven't listened to it since.
