Publisher's Summary

Learn to communicate effectively with your Spanish-speaking students and their parents in just five hours!

Have you always wanted to learn Spanish but never found the time or the right teacher?

Are you a successful elementary or high school teacher who wants to take it to the next level by communicating well with your Spanish speaking students?

Did you study Spanish in school but find yourself unable to construct even simple sentences in Spanish?

This audiobook is for teachers in need of a Spanish beginners or refresher course. Regardless of the specific teaching situation you find yourself in, you will learn how to communicate with your students in their own language. Due to our unique method of teaching, you will be amazed at how much Spanish you will learn and retain in just five hours.

Efficient Learning:

Our breakthrough method allows you to retain most, if not all, of what you learn and immediately put it to use. The key is interactivity: Instead of making you repeat words and sentences, you are encouraged to think and apply what you learn. Using the words and concepts you learn throughout the course, you will build Spanish sentences and translate Spanish sentences into English right from the start. The course also makes use of the many similarities between English and Spanish, so you can associate new Spanish words with English words you already know.

Relevance:

You'll learn relevant words and sentences that you can put to use immediately. This will allow you to reinforce what you've learned through real-life practice and motivate you to complete the course.

Speed:

This course only takes about five hours to complete. Many people buy expensive Spanish courses and never find the time to complete the course. But you should be able to find five hours. Even if you only study for half an hour each day, you'll be done in a little less than a week!

Practical and Intuitive Introduction to Spanish

As a high school teacher in a school district with a very large Spanish population, I've been meaning to refresh my Spanish for a while.
But I simply did not have the time and patience for a general purpose Spanish course like Pimsleur.
This book covers the most important topics such as classroom discipline, speaking to parents, helping students with their homework and general basic friendly interactions.
The learning is interactive and intuitive. No heavy focus on grammatical concepts, just practical Spanish that I can use.
Would recommend this.

Really helpful, would love a follow up edition!

It starts pretty basic and advances as it moves along. It also has a ton of useful vocabulary and phrases for school situations.

Awesome language learning in short time

What made the experience of listening to Spanish for the Busy Teacher the most enjoyable?

This is a great book for people who don't have a ton of time and would like to learn the basics of Spanish. The book is well structured, intuitive, and has a unique style of teaching a language, unlike what you find in most language books.

For Beginning Spanish Learners

What would have made Spanish for the Busy Teacher better?

It would have been better if a suggested learner level were in the description. If you are familiar with Spanish, then this book will move too slowly for you.

Would you be willing to try another book from David Rappoport? Why or why not?

I would try another book from this author because the overall organization of this book was good. However, the suggested level of the target learner should have been specified.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration did not meet the needs of the learner,

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
