Publisher's Summary

What is the most challenging aspect of learning Spanish? Can you guess? Finding helpful and engaging reading material you can actually understand.... That is exactly what inspired us to create this audiobook.

How is a student supposed to learn when language instructors love providing materials that are tough expert-level literature with tons of grammar and rules? That style of content for new language learners can be overwhelming and lead you to flip back and forth between a dictionary and your book...constantly!

That's not an effective use of your time, nor is it the best way to learn. Is this how children learn their language skills? No.

Enter Spanish Stories for Beginners: You will find 10 easy-to-listen-to, engaging, and fun stories that will help you to expand your vocabulary and give you the tools to improve your grasp of the Spanish language.

Improve your comprehension, grow your vocabulary, and spark your imagination with these 10 unconventional Spanish short stories!

All stories are written using vocabulary you could easily use in your day-to-day conversations.

The stories are written with beginner Spanish learners in mind. With that said, it is highly recommended to have a basic understanding of Spanish to achieve maximum enjoyment and effectiveness of the lessons.

This program is excellent for those who want to get an introduction to the language or brush up on their Spanish language skills.

How to listen to Spanish Short Stories for Beginners:

  • Each story contains an important lesson in the Spanish language (verbs, adjectives, past tense, giving directions, and more), involving an interesting and entertaining story with realistic dialogues and day-to-day situations.
  • A summary in Spanish and in English of what you just heard, both to review the lesson and for you to gauge your comprehension of what the tale was about.

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

Splendid audio book to hear.

It appears as though I'm taking this Spanish studying, splendidly. It is through this viable sound guide that I started to acquaint myself better with the sounds and rhythms of the Spanish language.

Volume 1's excellent!

It's one classic Spanish guide I wouldn't miss if I were you. I started studying the book,listening to one chapter a day and how rewarding it is as I begin to make some progress. The stories are short but captivating. I didn't experience any boredom at all!

fifth out of six books tried

Short stories for beginners
I was frustrated by all the paid for 5 star reviews for these books so decided to do my own comparison. Here are the results:

6 audio books compared and ranked by ease of understanding for a beginner with only a few words of Spanish

1. Claudia Orea 4 stars
The best of the six I tried. Has verbal translations although oddly these are presented from track 14 onwards after you have listened to the whole thing in just Spanish. Would be better to have the translation next to each story.

2. Alicia Garcia 3 stars
written Translation via pdf, no verbal translation. More interesting stories than learning revolution though

3. Learning Revolution - 2/3 stars
Has some vocabulary verbally translated although the Spanish accented English is hard to follow. Stories pretty boring (e.g. working as an accountant). Hard to follow for a beginner

4. Olly Richards 2 stars
No translation, slightly more interesting stories than learning revolution though
Lingo Mastery. Hard to follow for a beginner.

5. Touri Language Learning 1 star
Lots of sales pitches for their courses. No translation. Hard to follow.

6. Francisco Ruiz 1 star

All of these books were initially published as physical books. They are designed to be read, rather than listened to as audio books. To convert them into audio a Spanish speaker reads the text and a pdf has been added. This doesn’t really work for learning via audio. As a beginner you need more side by translation of the audio, at least initially until a few key phrases have been properly learnt.

I'm highly recommending it.

Now I have a Spanish guide containing basic Spanish grammar and vocabulary that I can practice everyday. An absolute beginner material here, but I feel like I have been listening to it for months. I am that comfortable with this audio guide.

Pretty good audio guide.

An adult here, but I found myself enjoying these Spanish short stories. The stories are spoken by a native Spanish speaker, Makes it more appealing and authentic.

Easy-to-learn audio.

Suitable for absolute beginners well. It is a clearly-spoken Spanish audio book and a narrator with natural-sounding accent. Excellent choice!

It is worth recommending.

What an excellent tool I can recommend to my students. I'm beginning to love using short stories. I recommended this to three of my students first and I notice a big improvement in their articulation. Thanks a lot!
