Very Good!

Very good short stories. The audio is very good and the tempo is excellent. I wish it came with transcript. The voice is pleasing, and it is easy to listen to again and again. I bought the book on Amazon. If the book had translated the text it would be much better. I had to refer to google translate to often.

I bought this book so that I could become a little more familiar with the Spanish language. It was very easy to navigate the short stories and vocabulary words. I remembered a little from school but not a lot and this book helped refresh my memory on a lot of the words I had forgotten.

I found the book to be very interesting. I liked the fact that it was simple to read and easy to follow. Especially that the Spanish words are put right next to the English ones and then placed within paragraphs to help let you see them with how they would be used in writing or speech. The audio portion is definitely helpful because it allows you to hear the word being said. I would really recommend this book to people who would like to learn Spanish in a fun and interesting way.

Easy stories, good vocabularies in the stories so that you are pushed some, but enough support so that you don't spend all of your time looking up defintions (as a matter of fact the touch screen dictionary is poor but the written vocabulary works well.). I recommend it.

A great book for those who are new to Spanish!

I really enjoyed reading this book and listening along to the native Spanish speaker. The stories are laid out in a way that is easy to understand and the audio is a pleasure to listen to. I highly recommend at least a basic understanding of the fundamentals of Spanish before diving in to this book, you will be introduced to many new useful words and phrases that will broaden your Spanish vocabulary quickly!

I think that it is neat that they are teaching you the Spanish language through short stories and the Spanish-English dictionary along with the audio was a really helpful as well. The ebook is very innovated.

As I'm very interested in learning and improving foreign languages I took in school this small book really caught my eye because it seems child friendly. While some times that may seem like a bad thing I learned that reading children's books/listening to children audio stories really can help you improve your language at a nice pace instead of trying to keep up with a tutor or teacher's usually faster paced teaching.

This book gives us an effective way of pronunciation as well as an English glossary in case if we do not know the meaning of such words. Each chapter contains a quiz that summarizes the story that you have read. Afterwards, the book gives you a summary that you can compare with your own understanding of the short stores.

I studied Spanish in school and the stories in this book are an entertaining way to refresh rather than just reviewing vocabulary lists or verb conjugation charts. The one small change I’d make is putting the key vocabulary words before the story but otherwise this is an excellent option for someone attempting to brush up on the language.

Great For Beginners

The short stories are beautifully narrated and are an excellent complement to beginner classes. This audio book would be great for learners and teachers, as well. The narration is clear and easy to follow and the stories are interesting.

this is not a beginners book

maybe an intermediate book? it was a struggle to understand the stories not because of how it was narrated but because of the words used and how the sentences were put together. I also tried reading the book while listening to the audio -- still a struggle -- compared to other beginners books I have read....
