Publisher's Summary

Are you interested in learning Spanish but prefer to do it on your own, in your free time, in your car, or at home? Have you been desperately trying to learn the language but simply can’t find a way to take the first steps? Are you looking for the most sensible, quickest, and most reliable way to learn Spanish - where the whole method is backed by reliable scientific research?

If you answered yes to at least one of the questions above, then this guide is exactly for you. For those who’ve despaired of ever learning a foreign language, here, finally, is an audiobook that will make the words stick long-term.

“To have another language is to possess a second soul.” -Charlemagne

Possibly the most feared challenge to learning Spanish is the challenge of memory: there are just too many words and too many rules to remember. For every new word we learn, we seem to forget two old ones, and as a result, fluency can seem out of reach. That is exactly why Learn Spanish in Your Car was written. According to Professor Elfrieda H. Hieber from the University of California, Berkeley, The 100 most frequent words account for about 50 percent of the words in a typical text and the 1000 most frequent words for about 70 percent. Therefore it is evident that the first 1000 words of learning a language can provide you with an immense boost on your journey to master the language.

From Learn Spanish in Your Car you’ll discover:

  • The seven most common contexts to INSTANTLY kickstart your learning process (even if you barely know a word at the moment!)
  • The latest scientific research about language learning combined with a practical guide you will not find on your average Online learning website
  • The single best way to increase your reading and listening comprehension, which enable you to communicate with little or no grammar
  • Funny and entertaining phrases that won’t give you the feeling of learning a new language
  • How this guide can dramatically improve your skills while entertaining you at the same time (It doesn’t feel like work, but the results will amaze you)
  • How a simple grouping of thematic vocabulary lists can take tremendous fear from getting started and make everything suddenly seem 10 times easier
  • The absolute basic 3 areas of phrases you HAVE to know to communicate in Spanish as quickly as possible (You might be missing out tremendously if you don’t know these!)
  • And much, much more! 

Even if you have already tried everything else without success, the beginner friendly and systematic choice of words and phrases are based on both practical experience as a native speaker and the latest scientific research. Thus, Learn Spanish in Your Car is your shortcut to master the hard beginning in the easiest way possible. Buy this audiobook now! PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

This is a good book to start learning Spanish.

This is a good book to start learning Spanish. The vocabulary is in the back of each story. I recommend using Spanish dictionary with it. I recommend it highly.

This helps you listen for understanding.

This helps you listen for understanding and pronunciation. It starts with words and short phrases and moves quickly to longer sentences. Each lesson builds on the ones before, with concepts adding quickly.

The real key to this course.

The real key to this course is that it makes very practical use of time otherwise totally wasted on the drive to and from work. It's not exactly painless, you still have to concentrate on listening and speaking. Then a little bit of talking with a native speaker, you will pick up the language far better than you expect.

We use this audiobook in my Spanish class. It's small and just feels "quick and easy." The vocab and sentence use is a good way to learn a language.

You learn much faster!

You hear it first in English, then there is a pause and you try to say it in Spanish. Then you hear it twice in Spanish, with a pause each time for you to attempt it. You learn much faster if you do try to pronounce it, as they recommend.

Limited Usefulness

This audiobook is great in concept, but it's disappointing. It's a recitation of hundreds and hundreds of phrases, each one stated once in English and then twice in Spanish, by a non-native Spanish speaker. It’s annoying when his Spanish pronunciation is wrong, especially when the letters g, gu, or u are involved. Some phrases are idiomatic expressions, some are just phrases, and some are totally absurd. The book seems to have been written by a native Spanish speaker who is not fully fluent in English and who didn’t bother to have it proofread by someone who is. Here is a sample of some of the odd phrases you will learn: #55 The day is very colorful. #63 I was on an intermediate position there. #182 The rupture with her girlfriend left him hit and sunk. #187 I feel as if I had received a beat up. And do we really need to know how to say #142 “Urbanistic law only allows for embellishments of the decorative elements”? I'm not sure what book the reviewers listened to who gave it 5 stars. It does not deserve a high rating!

Don't even bother!

If you want someone to read you a list of random spanish words this is for you. If you actually want to learn spanish don't bother.

It just pronounces the phrases, that's it.

definitely not for a beginner. the phrases get quite long, and are said quite quickly.

Learnt nothing from this!

One of many methods of learning Spanish I have tried that hasn’t worked. Starts off ok but then gives you very long sentences to learn and hard to figure out the pronouncement.

Very poor.

Of no use to me. I felt anger with the narrator before he had even finished the introduction. The reading out of a word number before every word is infuriating. I returned this book for a refund.

A complete waste of my subscription

This is the worst language course I have ever come across. An inconsequent list of words or phrases, recited in the fashion of a bingo game, one spends as much time hearing that the phrase is “number37” as one does hearing Spanish. There is no structure, no development of skills, opportunity to review and repeat.
