Challenging and Friendly Mexican Spanish Program

Any additional comments?

I've been looking for a good Mexican language program for a long time and I found it here. It made me reasonably conversational in real Mexican Spanish in just a few weeks of semi-intense study during my down time in the car and while working out at the gym. I liked the complete illustration of differences between Spanish speaking in Mexico compared to other Spanish speaking countries. No guessing, full explanations. Mark the narrator/teacher explains, along with some great Mexican Spanish speakers. I also learned a lot of common Mexican phrases Real bang for the buck on this program.

Excellent approach that teaches the little-known nuances between standard and Mexican Spanish.

Mexican Spanish

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'd say it's time well spent. There are just some pitfalls to look out for. The woman in the audio uses the effeminate central mexico pronunciation of SH at words ending in R. Not always but most of the time. It's kind of confusing especially when she sometimes does it and sometimes doesn't...all with no explanation. I had to find this out by accident. A man that talks like this is going to come across as a stereo-typical gay if he goes around doing that. I could write that that is okay...but it's really not. The author of this should have mentioned this.

What was most disappointing about Mark Frobose’s story?

The woman using SH on words ending in R. Mark should have mentioned this up front.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mark Frobose?

Mark does an okay job.

Was Mexican Spanish Accelerated - 8 One Hour Audio Lessons (English and Spanish Edition) worth the listening time?

I appreciate that there is an audiobook for mexican spanish. It's time well spent; I had to learn outside the material about some mispronunciations so that was funny... I think the woman who is going all in with the effeminate pronunciations is doing the listeners a disservice by not speaking normally or at least warning the male listeners that they are going to sound like pansy's if they imitate her. Also, try not to judge this material by the first chapter of material...I almost did. It gets much better later starting in Chapter 2.

Any additional comments?

Please update the audiobook to address my other comments. Thanks for releasing this. I live in San Diego and am starting to understand the mexican radio stations and people I hear around town. I'm pretty confident I'm going to get better.

Super Price & Learning Speed of Mexican Spanish

I quickly learned to speak a ton of real Mexican Spanish from this unique, fun and effective program. My opinion is that anyone from businesspersons to Spanish language students, from restaurant-goers to travelers considering a trip to Mexico will find “Mexican Spanish Accelerated” to be the essential "icing" on their Spanish learning cake! The fusion of Old World Castilian Spanish from Spain and New World Native languages and cultures of Mexico have given rise to a myriad of unique words and expressions which originated in and are largely confined to Spanish speakers from Mexico.

Mexican Spanish Accelerated contains a lot more than just words and phrases unique to Mexico. Standard, universal sentence-building Spanish phrases like ‘I have to,’ ‘I would like,’ ‘I want,’ ‘I need,’ ‘I am going to,’ and so on, prepare the beginner for fast and original sentence creation and prepare the learner for a great adventure south of the Río Grande – or “El Río Bravo” as they call it in Mexico. A variety of folk expressions are also taught by the narrator and his three or four Mexican instructors who are all educated native speakers of authentic Mexican Spanish.

Both the price of this audio program and the speed at which it teaches you to speak real Mexican Spanish are unbeatable. Spanish language students and vacationers will all benefit from Mexican Spanish Accelerated as much as I did. So click on over to Audible.com, download Mexican Spanish Accelerated, and discover how things are said down Mexico way. Ándale! - Go for it!

Andale. Talk Like a Mexican

Any additional comments?

According to my wife's family, I'm now speaking like a real Mexican thanks to Mexican Spanish Accelerated. I had to get all of that high school Castilian garbage out of my mind and concentrate on the Mexican dialect. Wife is Mexican and has a huge family. They love me more now that I speak their language. Ha.

Great Accents - Really Taught Me Mexican Spanish

Any additional comments?

From the get-go this program really taught me the difference between standard Spanish and Mexican Spanish.

The detail and attention that the creators of the program put into explaining and demonstrating accents within Mexico and then comparing them to other Spanish speaking countries is one-of-a-kind. That alone makes this program worth the money.

But then you have the Mexican words, the detailed explanation that "tomato" and "chocolate" are Aztec Indian words.

This is not a common run of the mill Spanish program.

This is an exceptionally high quality Mexican Spanish program that has really increased my understanding and ability to communicate with Mexican Spanish speakers.

Excellent in every way.

Good for advanced beginners.

I would not recommend this for levels above advanced beginners. I agree that repetition is the mother of success, but repetition here is slightly overdone.

Great Program for Learning Real Mexican Spanish

Where does Mexican Spanish Accelerated - 8 One Hour Audio Lessons (English and Spanish Edition) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right at the top with Power Spanish and Power Italian.
The difference is that "Mexican Spanish Accelerated" is more specialized and focused on real Mexican Spanish.
For instance, here I learned that the Mexicans LOVE to put "le" after verbs.
Instead of just saying "Anda" or "Go" they like to say "Andale". No other country does that, and you learn these cool things from the get-go with this program.
Another fascinating thing I learned were all the Mexican Nahuatl words that we have incorporated into American English like "Chocolate" "Tomate" etc .... Mexican indian words that are a part of both Mexican Spanish and American English.
Wow. That's good stuff to know.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved the native Mexican speakers in the program from different parts of Mexico with their authentic accents. I can't believe some reviews actually complaining about a program that is so complete that it teaches you a language in such depth.

What about Mark Frobose’s performance did you like?

Mark is a "friendly instructor" type of voice presence. He's like an expert guide say "Watch for this", "This means this and that means that".
I consider his explanations, motivational tone, and guidance to be a major key in making this program so excellent.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

How to "platicar" in Spanish with real Mexicans using real Mexican Spanish.
Most Spanish programs teach "conversar" for "to converse" but almost all Mexicans use the verb "platicar" for converse. I learned that one and a million other distinctions from this program.

Any additional comments?

Like with all Language Audiobooks programs, this one gives you a lot of of bang for your language buck. No BS. Just rock-solid teaching of fundamentals, great memory techniques, and interesting educated native Spanish speakers along with Mark, making your language journey a memorable and effective one indeed.

Disorganized

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Organize the content into a logical format that flows better. This book does not stand very well on its' own, it needs to be edited much better.

What could Mark Frobose have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Reduce the randomness and re-edit this program. It was not what I expected. The description says nothing about your current language level but from the content of this book it is obvious that it assumes you have at minimum a basic grasp of common words.

What three words best describe Mark Frobose’s voice?

Monotone, Fun, Monotone

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The exercises were actually useful and fun, many provided a worthwhile challenge. It is a semi-useful review and reinforcement tool.

Any additional comments?

It is obvious that this book was made of bits and pieces taken from other books. Early in lesson 2 Mark asks "Do you remember the expression for...". I spent several minutes trying to figure out how I missed our review of that expression only to discover that there never was a review of it nor a lesson associated with it. If you do not have at least some basic Spanish skills skip this one for now.
