A cut above other workbooks

Explanations and exercises follow each sample conversation. This is not primarily a book for beginners, though a brief appendix in the back of the book covers basic grammar, conjugations, pronouns, etc. Our class, which includes students of many different levels of ability, is using this book, and we are all enthusiastic about it. I find this one of THE most helpful books I have ever used, and I am a perennial student of Spanish.

Great Resource

I find this to be a very useful as I try to expand my conversational skills. I will keep referring back to it until I've practiced enough for it all to become ingrained. I am at an intermediate level of language acquisition and I think it is just right for me, if that helps anyone else to decide.

Technical audiobook

I have tried many products on my quest to learn Spanish. This one is the best! It was easy to follow and perfect to listen to on my commute to work. What I am most impressed with is that I retained the learning whereas with other methods I did not. Highly recommended!

I hated school textbooks, until now.

However learning Spanish, this book provides an incredible set of grammatical rules, vocabulary and teaches you how to conjugate quickly and confidently. I love that it’s split out by tenses. I hate textbooks so hard, but this one is legit.

Useful phrases

Many phrases I want to learn in Spanish are not readily available but this book seems to makes them all at your finger tips. Only problem is to incorporate them into your conversations -or lack thereof.

Great Book for Beginners Looking to Learn Spanish

This was a really good book to listen. I have taken Spanish classes in the past and learned some Spanish but this book really helped me understand the Spanish language. I thought the pace of the book was great, it went slow enough that I could understand what was being said or at least parts that I recognized but did not go to slow so that it did not drag on. I recommend this book to anyone who is trying to start learning Spanish or trying to brush up on their Spanish. The definitions that were being explained helped me refresh my vocabulary. This was a great book that allowed me to learn Spanish better than I have before.

Good content and awesome learning experience.

The book introduce you in casual routine through short stories which represent real situations, showing a dynamic and useful vocabulary for a daily conversation. For beginners students this is an excellent way to learn Spanish. I really enjoyed the story, and also the reinforcement of the words, I increased the range of my vocabulary.

Good foundation in learning the Spanish language

I studied Spanish language in College and continued learning it using alternative mobile applications but that was a long time ago and mostly just reading Spanish words and their translations. This audiobook is truly a refresher for a novice like me in Spanish language.
Listening to the stories allow me to enhance my comprehension and help me learn how to pronounce Spanish words the right way. The difficulty level will not stressed you out but rather help you learn the basics of the language while being entertained.

Absolutely will add to you Spanish language skills

Certainly. Spanish language has always been a big part of my own native language and this book made me much closer to it. I like the stories and how the voice over was able to give life to the stories and scenarios in the various chapters.
