Publisher's Summary

The Easiest and Fastest Way to Learn Castilian Spanish
Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what’s going on in the world around you, learning Castilian Spanish will expand your horizons and immeasurably enrich your life.

The best part is that it doesn’t have to be difficult or take years to master. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and we get you speaking right from the first day. Pimsleur courses use a scientifically-proven method that puts you in control of your learning. If you’ve tried other language learning methods but found they simply didn’t stick, then you owe it to yourself to give Pimsleur a try. 

What’s Included? 

  • Thirty 30-minute audio lessons 
  • Eighty minutes of reading instruction to provide you with an introduction to reading Castilian
  • Spanish designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent 
  • In total, 16.5 hours of audio, all featuring native speakers 
  • A reading booklet and a user’s guide
     

What You’ll Learn
Builds upon skills taught in Pimsleur’s Castilian Spanish Level 1.

In the first ten lessons you’ll begin using the past tense. Structures become more complex and informal speech is introduced. Soon you’ll take part in conversations about ordering meals, shopping, and local tourist attractions. As you progress, your fluency will increase as your vocabulary expands.

The next ten lessons will allow you to further combine and build upon known elements, and produce longer and more complex sentences. You’ll be discussing business and social activities, expressing your interests, and talking about the weather. 

In the final ten lessons you’ll double your vocabulary and have several hundred structures to draw upon. You’ll learn to express yourself with relative structures - faster, slower, etc. You’ll be able to ask for assistance in many situations and to ask for directions to various locations. You’ll explore sports and leisure activities, manage changing money and banking, and discuss travel plans. By the end of the program, you’ll be speaking at a mid-intermediate level with near-native pronunciation, and you’ll be comfortable meeting most social demands and limited job requirements.

Reading lessons are included at the end of Lesson 30. These lessons, which total about 80 minutes, are designed to give you practice reading Spanish, and to provide you with some insight into Spanish culture with proverbs, common expressions, and a broad look at things you’ll experience when visiting a Spanish-speaking country.

Cannot download accompanying reading book

The PDF that can be downloaded only includes reading booklet for Castilian spanish1 and NOT Castilian Spanish2.
The listening course is good but without the reading booklet this is not worth more than 80 dollars.
