Would you consider the audio edition of Spanish for Educators to be better than the print version?
Maybe, the audio version is very convenient. I have never used the print version of the book.
Moreover, the auditory version provides a copy for the learner to match to her/his voice when learning the phrases, something a print book would not provide.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Spanish for Educators has no story line, it is not a story.
What does Stacey Kammerman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The ability to built an auditory memory of the information presented. A classroom teacher would find it difficult to speak spontaneously in the classroom if he/she was constantly looking up the phrases. By learning them through listen and repeat, the phases may be more accessible when needed.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
This audio book is an excellent way to learn and practice phrases for Spanish in the classroom. Sometimes it is difficult to understand the initial sounds made by the Spanish speaker,so it is important to listen for the repetition of each phrase. When the pronunciation of the English speaker does not exactly match the Spanish speaker, the listener is given confidence to speak each phrase as best he/she is able.
