Learn the lingo in less than an hour! 2 languages, 20 scenarios, 200 dialogues. A fun-filled phrasebook by Mike Church ('Spanish for Rhythmic People')
What would have made Spanglish for Impatient People better?
Any instruction, clear structure or organization to these random sentences would have been helpful. This is just Mr. Church saying something random in Spanish and then repeating in English. Most of the phrases aren't even things the average person would ever have the need to say. Plus they are not very understandable at all.
What was most disappointing about Mike Church’s story?
The complete disorganized random rambling of spanish sentences, no rhyme or reason to their order at all. I have been studying Spanish for two years, have gone through all the Pimsleur phases and feel I have a pretty good grasp on the language, but could only make out an occasional word of Mr. Church's phrases (I do not have this problem with other Spanish audiobooks at all).
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mike Church?
Someone who sounds either more American or Spanish, his accent almost makes it sound German or British at times which is not convenient when you are trying to pronounce Spanish words correctly.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
I definitely do not recommend either of his two books that are currently listed on audible.com related to Spanish instruction (yes I purchased both before hearing how bad they were).
