    Amazingly horrible.

    The narrators' Spanish is not only excessively rapid, but slurred in a way that makes it impossible for a learner to distinguish words. The narration is filled with chatty English dialog between the narrators, which is stupid and distracting. There is no apparent logic to the subject matter. I am truly surprised that Audible would allow such a horrible product to be sold, so that unsuspecting listeners like myself waste a credit on it.

    Okay for supplementing your learning

    It’s a good supplement for learning Spanish, since they do have demonstrations in the native speed, and there are a few words and phrases to learn. It’s also presented in a way to help the student understand the language by performing realistic scenarios using the language.

    If learning how to speak Spanish, it doesn’t work as a stand-alone book. For learning how to speak Spanish, either get the audiobooks by Paul Noble or Michel Thomas. If you’re an absolute beginner, get Berlitz.

    switched voice actors made this very confusing

    too much English. They switched voice actors from male to female which made the rules very difficult to follow overall I would not recommend this book
