The Complete Spanish Fluency Self-Training Program

Pretty awful!

It teaches what is obvious and wastes time . False pretences. In addition, it’s boring.
The sales pitch is misleading.

Good tips on learning Spanish

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

Yes, I would definitely recommend this audio to anyone learning Spanish (or any other language for that matter). Most of the tips are just common sense, but sometimes you just need someone else to to tell you what you already should know.

Very Useful

I am a non- native Spanish speaker and HS teacher who has struggled for years to find better ways to teach my students beyond just the basics. While these strategies are not meant for the classroom, I gleaned quite a bit that I will be incorporating into my teaching this coming year...to my student's dismay, I'm afraid! The truth is, it is relatively easy to get through a foreign language class without speaking any of the language..and still make a decent grade. But I want my students to SPEAK it, and with some of your ideas, I expect to have better results than I ever have! Gracias!

Nothing new.

Contains basic ideas that, if you're a serious learner, you've already figured out. Nothing new.

A solid plan to become fluent.

The authors plan for becoming fluent in Spanish was somewhat similar to what I was already doing, which was refreshing and encouraging. this book helped me identify way to improve my plan for becoming fluent in Spanish. The title is completely accurate. Only hard work will get you to fluency.

Short, but to the point.

I found this book very helpful. I'm really just a beginner, but believe that the method he describes will be very helpful to me. I'm planning to purchase the book he recommended, by another author, as well. I really, really want to be able to speak, and understand the Spanish language.

One-sentence summary of this title

Translate classic fairy tales into Spanish and study everything you get wrong.

This might be a good strategy with fiction or nonficton that doesn't use archaic language or have fantastical plots. I don't expect to be in a conversation about mythical she-wolves anytime ever. But if that sounds like something you'd enjoy, I'm pretty certain these stories are in the public domain and can be obtained for free with a Google search.
