Publisher's Summary

Learn Spanish the easiest way!

Enjoy 2 free gifts with your purchase of this book: a mastermind group membership and a special report for planning the life of your dreams.

Are you looking for a fantastic and in-depth way to learn a new language? Why not treat your brain and go about it the natural way? That's right, your brain has a natural way of learning language, and you simply aren't taking advantage of it.

Our brains are hardwired to act on a complex system of concepts and context clues in order to figure out language. This is why most polyglots in the world will tell you that the absolute best way to learn a language is by simply immersing yourself in it.

With this book, you'll be going through different short stories, all of which are following the story of a girl named Maria and her kind family from El Salvador. Throughout the short stories, you'll be challenged and pushed to your limits - that's how you know the method is working. You'll never be left in the dust, but you will most certainly be immersed in the beautiful Spanish language. After every short story, there's an English version, in case you got totally lost, and a section with grammar tips and vocabulary to help you round out every short story with a proper lesson.

The best Spanish lessons I've listened to.

Definitely the best lessons I've listened to. I have learned much more than I have ever learned using other audiobooks. I am going to purchase the next levels. I have also purchased books to go with the audio so I can learn how to write. Worth the money.

Excellent

I really enjoyed this book. It was a great review of basic concepts I’d forgotten and helped to cement some grammar rules that I struggle with. This audio book might be tough to follow for someone who has not previously been exposed to Spanish verb conjugations but if you’ve already been exposed (preterite, imperfect, informal future, present indicative) or are currently studying these conjugations then this will be a helpful accompaniment. Like other reviewers have said, it does seem to be aimed at those listeners reaching for long term fluency as opposed to shorter term navigation/ travel oriented Spanish (it’s perfect for me - I do want long term fluency). I love the cultural notes (which countries use which words) and would like to hear more of that. Overall, I would recommend this audio book and am looking forward to checking out the Italian series! Moving on to intermediate Spanish now!

Very appealing and cost-effective way to learn

What makes these audio lessons so appealing to both people who are learning Spanish and also Spanish instructors who are looking for supplemental materials to go along with their classes is that they're so cost-effective. Lots of content included and all of it for what I consider a great price. By the way, this makes the third program that I have recently downloaded from them in as many weeks.

How I took my Spanish to the next level

I have seen people who commented that the program went too fast. I strongly disagree. I have had a great deal success with this program and have recommended it several people in a social media group for learning Spanish that I am in. The only people who claimed that it went too fast are the ones who did not repeat the lessons enough times. The creator of the programs recommends that you repeat each lesson 3 to 5 times and never use the transcript (although he includes it). I say repeat each lesson as many times as it takes for you to master the lessons. In some cases it took me one or two times and in other cases it required me to repeat the lesson even more than five times. If you do that as I have done, you'll find that when you finish this program you will no longer refer to yourself as a beginner. Learning a foreign language when youíre an adult is no easy task. It takes a lot of hard work and there are not cutting corners.

The bonus package really helps

The generous bonus package that's included adds a lot of value. There are several bonuses but my favorite bonus lessons are the two lessons included from New Millennium Beginner Spanish. What I found most interesting about the two bonus lessons from New Millennium Beginner Spanish is that it teaches beginner Spanish for the 21st century. For example, Spanish vocabulary for social media, technology, uber transportation and even veganism. After I finish with this audiobook my plan is to buy New Millennium Beginner Spanish.

Well worth the credit!

I'm a beginner Spanish student learning on my own using apps, podcasts, books, and videos online. I picked up this audiobook to supplement my other lessons and I'm glad I did! It starts with the very basics of vocabulary and teaches it in a way guaranteed to make me remember. The narrator leaves space in order to guess the word and repeat it, making sure to imprint the word or phrase in my head. If you're using an app like Duolingo to learn Spanish,

This is a great product

I own Fluenz, play Duonlingo and listen to their podcast for intermediate Spanish, but this is my favorite resource. I minored in Spanish in college and at one time was nearing fluency. I've lost my ability to speak Spanish, but I can still read and understand most intermediate written communication. I'm only on lesson 3, but I absolutely love the repetition and audio format. If you want to be able speak Spanish, you have to listen to it and speak it a lot. All of the lessons thus far are very familiar concepts, that despite their familiarity are still difficult to access when trying to speak naturally.

VERY HELPFUL!

I took 3 years of Spanish in high school and did very well, but now that I'm 50 it's completely gone from my mind LOL. This is a great course, and great value. Very helpful and informative, I now feel much more confident speaking conversational Spanish. I found it easy to listen to and understand, and really got a benefit from listening :) I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review
