Publisher's Summary

Want to expand your Spanish vocabulary with almost no effort? Then keep reading.

Are you planning a trip to a Spanish-speaking destination? Or sharpening your skills for work? Just press play on this audiobook when you’re sleeping, meditating or doing chores around the house.

Learn new vocabulary while actively listening, or passively while you’re doing other things.

This audiobook contains:

  • More than 1000 common Spanish words and phrases
  • More than four hours of original music (composed and performed by South African DJ and producer Spirante Beat) specifically to relax your mind

I'm sure your first question is: Can you actually learn a foreign language while you’re asleep? Well, according to a Swiss research study in 2014, the answer is unassailably, YES! In this study, a group of German speakers was given a list of unfamiliar Dutch words to study. Half were instructed to get some sleep, while they listened to long lists of Dutch words and translations. The other half was instructed to stay awake. Four hours later, they were tested and the group that listened while they slept had significantly higher recall. The study concluded that people can indeed absorb new information passively during non-REM sleep - which is the deep sleep we get in the first few hours of the night.

This audiobook is divided into six chapters, each with different kinds of vocabulary, and with different music. Choose a different chapter each night, or loop the audiobook to have a continuous stream. Some listeners - those with more experience with the foreign language - have reported that these recordings allow them to dream in that language!

Sit back, relax, enjoy and learn!

Two Words; IT WORKS!

I was skeptical at first but after listening to this book all the way through twice, I can now say that the limited amount of Spanish that I thought I knew is now much greater. I took Spanish in high school 35 years ago and have been able to speak and understand little bits here and there but in the last three weeks, I find myself comprehending a lot more and also speaking Spanish more fluently. The narrators voice is so soothing that it's almost impossible not to fall asleep while listening to this. What a great idea and what a great way to learn. The real test will be my trip to Mexico next month!

Meh...

Pros:
*It gets you to focus on your Spanish.
*The music is soothing and pleasant.

Cons:
*The vaunted "music" stops after chapter 1.
*There are only words. No helpful phrases. This would have been 10x better if it had simple phrases like, "May I please get the check?" or "How much for this item?" Even just the first ten that are in every travel book would have been nice.
*Not much care seems to have been put into the word choice. For example, "cassette tape" was included. Do you remember the last time you needed to inquire about a cassette tape in Spanish?

An original idea that works!

I always need something to listen to when I'm trying to fall asleep, and when I wake up in the middle of the night. And this book was a perfect solution for my insomnia. It helps me get away from anxious thoughts by allowing me to focus on specific words... and I have been remembering all the Spanish in the following days. Pretty cool!

Super Effective!

I've actually found this to work for Italian, and because I have Spanish family members, figured I'd give it a shot to brush on on my Spanish! Turns out, it really ends up working. After a few weeks of listening, I find myself saying words and phrases, and substituting random thoughts in English for Spanish! Not only does it help with word allocation, but tense expression which I never would have expected. For anyone looking to for an innovative approach to learning Spanish, I would definitely give this a look.

The narrator is pleasant to listen to, and the overall ambience of the audio is extremely relaxing. Whether asleep or in meditation, I feel like the process works the same. Like I said, for anyone looking to learn or fortify their Spanish skill in a unique way, I would definitely give this audiobook a shot!

Great music and language learning in one

What better time to wind down for the day and simply put on an audiobook that teaches you something while you drift off to sleep? The music is a nice touch and each night simply pick back up where you left off. I recommend getting some earphones that are meant to sleep in that are flat. Otherwise normal headphones can really hurt your ears especially if you're a side sleeper like me.

Genial!

I have been trying to learn Spanish for years, Duolingo, live mocha and private lessons. This has been the best in terms of improving my vocab and learning new words. The soundtrack is very nice to drift off to sleep with.

What an Idea!

I've found this audio book to be a brilliant idea for the learners. One might just play the audio book and do kitchen chores or work in the laundry.

It has made me learn some basic words of Spanish within a week's time.

I reccomend this book to all those who have interest to learn languages.

So So

This is more focused on Latin American Spanish and she does tend to over roll the Rs in alot of the verbs. It would benifit greatly from a PDF download of the words. I can't say I've noticed any results from playing it while I slept but it is good for listening to it while out for a walk or pottering in the garden.

Learning new language while doing other things

Learning Spanish while carrying out my everyday life was a good experience. It was very educative and helpful in picking up basic words in a new language. Learning Spanish basics is something I needed to do to be able to fit into so many other society. If you enjoy touring other countries like America, Mexico or Spain, then "Learning Spanish in your sleep" is exactly what you need as it doesn't even ask for any extra time because you can just listen as you go.
