Can't understand what is happening.

What would have made The Accelerated Learning Spanish System better?

A warning that this is not for beginners. They literally don't tell you what is being said. I may as well be watching a Spanish movie without subtitles.

Missing Materials and Loud Music overpower dialog

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is a great program in general because of the dialogs you would likely encounter as a traveler to a spanish speaking company. However, if you are a beginner this program will be frustrating.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The characters in the dialogs are to basic to from an opinion but they are effective in teaching the language.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

This would be nice as a DVD- audio visual program.

Any additional comments?

Where this program fails is that you need a certain level of Spanish for it to be effective. The audio refers to vocabulary maps that were not included in our materials so there is a huge loss there. They keep playing concert music as a "right brain, left brain" engagement activity but the music is so loud that it's hard to pay attention to the dialog. I didn't like the concert music, not did I find it any more effective in learning.

WHERE ARE THE ACT SCRIPTS and THE PDF ??

The PDF in the supplements is another document giving basic spanish vocabulary.
I'd like to have the PDF belonging to this course with scripts -Peter mira la casa- etc.. ??
without that accompanying pdf new learners cannot understand...

You need the book as well

This is an excellent course but the written word is essential to the learning process. This should be made clear before you purchase

Not what it is cracked up to be

Any additional comments?

Great idea and generally executed well, however the lack of the written back up makes the course fairly useless. A bit like trying to play a record without a needle in the record player. Most elements are there but the thing that pulls it together is missing
