Publisher's Summary

This program consists of both the first five audio lessons from the new and improved Learning Spanish Like Crazy level one program and the first five audio lessons from the original or classic version of the Learning Spanish Like Crazy level one program. Learning Spanish Like Crazy will teach you how to speak authentic Latin-American conversational Spanish. I have only used native Spanish speakers in this program to make sure that you develop an authentic Latin-American Spanish accent. 

If you are not concerned with learning how to speak real everyday conversational Spanish, then this program is probably not for you. I understand that there are people who only want to learn enough Spanish to communicate with a hotel clerk, restaurant waiter, flight attendant, etc. in a Spanish-speaking country. But there are others who want to learn enough Spanish so that they will be able to develop meaningful friendships and relationships with Spanish speakers, and improve communication with Spanish-speaking in-laws. If the latter category best describes you, then this program is for you. 

The Learning Spanish Like Crazy system also puts a major emphasis on improving pronunciation. Some people have a natural ability that allows them to quickly develop native like pronunciation. You probably know someone who is the type of person that I am referring to. We have all seen or heard someone who can imitate the voice of a famous politician, actor, singer, or other celebrity so well that you could almost be fooled into thinking that you are actually hearing the famous person speak. Unfortunately, I was not born with that talent. I had to learn certain techniques to improve my Spanish pronunciation. Those same pronunciation-enhancing techniques are incorporated in this program. So if you've struggled to improve your Spanish pronunciation in the past, after completing this program don't be surprised if native Spanish speakers begin to compliment you on your pronunciation. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Best learning-Spanish audio program

Where does Learn Beginner Spanish with Learn Spanish Audio Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've said this before in a product review I made for another language-learning audio book by this same company. And now I am going to say it here again. This company makes the absolute best audio language-learning programs. Not only are their prices extremely affordable, their teaching-system is highly effective. But I must add that you really don't need the ebook. You can save your money and skip purchasing the ebook. The audio-book is really all you need. The ebook is just a transcript of the audio lessons and the creator of the program even says that if you're hoping to develop the pronunciation of a native Spanish speaker, then don't use the transcript. Just the audio program. And I'd have to agree with him. Besides it is so much more convenient using this system without using a reading-aid. That allows me to use the program in my car or when I am doing another activity that would normally not allow me to read while performing the activity, like when working out at the gym.

Exceeded My Expectations

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Without any reservations, I would not hesitate to recommend this audiobook to any friend, family member or co-worker who is struggling to learn Spanish. He or she would certainly benefit because the learning method used is not just fun and engaging it is also effective. It would not matter to me how fun and engaging this program is if it does not yield results. I participate in an online group with people who are learning Spanish and others who are learning English as a second language. The Spanish speakers learning English always ask me how did I learn how to speak Spanish so well. They compliment me not only on my knowledge of Spanish grammar and vocabulary but also how well I am able to pronounce Spanish words and phrases and comprehend their spoken Spanish including when they speak at a normal pace or speed. And I let them know I owe all my thanks to this audio program. This audio program has helped me tremendously. The Spanish speakers in my group also ask does the same company also make a learning English audiobook. I tell them I honestly do not know. But if they can learn English with the same method contained in this audiobook, they would really be surprised with how effortlessly and quickly then can learn how to speak English.

A real confidence-booster for speaking Spanish

What made the experience of listening to Learn Beginner Spanish with Learn Spanish Audio Book the most enjoyable?

I am very happy that I found this Spanish program. Although I have used the audio with the ebook the ebook really isn't necessary. The creator of the program even recommends that you use the audio program without the ebook. What I like most about the program besides the fact that it has improved my Spanish pronunciation ( Says my Spanish speaking friends) using these Spanish lessons have really given my Spanish- speaking skills a real boost in confidence.

Learn practical, conversational Spanish with an in

The first 5 lessons in this program are lessons 1 to 5 from Level 1 of the “original” Learning Spanish Like Crazy. The next 5 lessons in this program are lessons 1 to 5 from Level 1 of the so-called “New & Improved” Learning Spanish Like Crazy. And the two bonus lessons are lessons 1 and 2 from New Millennium Beginner Spanish.

What I enjoyed most about all of these audio lessons is that the lessons taught me practical, conversational Spanish. And the program’s teaching style of listening and repeating really helps to improve Spanish pronunciation. But one thing that really stands out about this program is that the interactive method really helped me to think in Spanish.

One problem that I have always had is that when I hear Spanish spoken, I try to translate it in my head. Which doesn’t work because by the time I finish translating a phrase in my head, the speaker is already finishing another phrase or two. But I noticed that the interactive method used in this program forces me to actually “think” in Spanish as opposed to mentally translating from Spanish into English.

Another thing that I really like about this program is that they include several bonus gifts. One bonus gift that this program includes, allows you to attend a monthly online Webinar taught by a Spanish teacher from Colombia. There’s no extra cost to pay in order to attend the monthly online Webinars --which really surprised me.

But my favorite bonus from this program is that they now include two extra audio lessons from their New Millennium Beginner Spanish program. To my knowledge, New Millennium Spanish is the only program that teaches not only basic Spanish vocabulary but also Spanish vocabulary for social media, the Web, modern technology - and a lot of other topics that older Spanish programs don’t cover. Such as, eating organic food, living abroad and working as a digital nomad, and working out at a cross-fit or MMA gym.

I should also add that the target market for this audio program seems to be the Spanish-language learner who wants to eventually achieve fluency in Spanish, and not just someone who just wants to pick-up a few travel phrases that will come in handy for tourists. If you’re running short on time and you need an audio program to quickly pick-up of some travel phrases for an upcoming trip to a Spanish-speaking country and you have no intentions of making the effort to learn to speak Spanish fluently, there are definitely better choices than this program. But if you’re absolutely sure that you want to begin the long journey it takes to learn to speak Spanish fluently, then I highly recommend this program.

Work of Genius

I have been in search of a spanish program that I can learn while driving to work each day. This program is truly a work of genius. It teaches you the correct structure of sentences and phrases. You begin to learn and retain spanish even without realizing it. I encourage anyone who is interested in learning the spanish language and has little free time in their professional life, to try this program.
