Good, maybe very good, but not superb

This program was highly recommended by at least three different people in my Spanish language learning meet up group. They talked about this audible program like it was the best thing since sliced bread. After completing about 95% of it I will say that it is good, actually very good, but definitely not superb as the fans (perhaps I should say fanatics) of this audio program would have you believe. One great thing about it is that is actually has a methodology. Initially I had purchased another audio program which I had confused with this one because the names were similar and the other program turned out to be nothing more than a vocabulary builder from someone simply reading off a long list of Spanish vocabulary words. But this one actually has a real methodology to it.

I do know a couple programs which I prefer over this one but they are not in this same price range. One of the best if not the absolute best thing about this one (besides the method of teaching and learning) is the amount of hours of audible Spanish lessons included for the price. Don't quote me on this but I believe there are over 20 hours of Spanish lessons. And that's lot of audio lessons considering what I paid.

If I had to pick one thing to justify why I consider this audible very good but certainly not superb is the fact that some of the vocabulary I learned I would never use. Such as the names of different hardware tools. I don't have any need for learning how to say hammer, nail or screw driver in Spanish. I know that some people may want to learn Spanish because they work with Spanish speaking employees and co-workers in construction but that is not the reason why I want to learn Spanish. I also understand that the idea is of this method is not to teach you to memorize a list of Spanish words but give you the tools to confidently converse in Spanish. But I felt that there could be slightly more helpful vocabulary.

In order to supplement my vocabulary-learning I found it necessary to buy another audible from the same author. I also purchased the 3 Learn Spanish For Adults Audiobooks Bundle which includes 1,000 Spanish Words, 99 Spanish Conversations & 150 Spanish Idioms. This audible program and the 3 Learn Spanish For Adults Audiobooks work hand in hand. If there were any vocabulary words that I missed out on in this audible program, I am sure that I learned them in the 3 Learn Spanish For Adults Audiobooks Bundle (1,000 Spanish Words, 99 Spanish Conversations & 150 Spanish Idioms). I have already purchased the intermediate level product in this series and will one day purchase the advanced one as well. I hope that anyone reading this will find my review quite helpful.

What I really like about this audiobook

This audiobook is among my top 5, if not my top 3. What I enjoyed most about all of these audio lessons is that the lessons taught me practical, conversational Spanish. And the teaching style really helped to improve my Spanish pronunciation. But one thing that really stands out about this program is that the interactive method really helped me to think in Spanish.

One problem that I have always had is that when I hear Spanish spoken, I try to translate it in my head. Which doesn not work because by the time I finish translating a phrase in my head, the speaker is already finishing another phrase or two. But I noticed that the interactive method used in this program forces me to actually think in Spanish as opposed to mentally translate from Spanish into English.

Another thing that I really like about this program is that they include several bonus gifts. One bonus gift that this program includes, allows you to attend a monthly online Webinar taught by a Spanish teacher from Colombia. There is no extra cost to pay in order to attend the monthly online Webinars.

One thing that I should make clear is that that the target market for this audio program seems to be the Spanish-language learner who wants to eventually achieve fluency in Spanish, and not just someone who just wants to pick-up a few travel phrases that will come in handy for tourists. If you are running short on time and you need an ebook to quickly pick-up of some travel phrases for an upcoming trip to Cancun, Mexico or Barcelona, Spain and you have no intentions of making the effort to learn to speak Spanish fluently, there are definitely better choices than this program. But if you are absolutely sure that you want to begin the long journey it takes to learn to speak Spanish fluently, then I highly recommend this program.

Free PDF makes program great for visual learners

As a self-described visual learner, I am more than happy that a FREE PDF transcript of the entire program is in my Audible library. The PDF seems to help me a lot since I like learning visually as I am learning audibly.

Highly effective guess-listen-repeat method

I'm a life-long student of learning foreign languages and I've been studying foreign languages for more than 30 years. I also speak several foreign languages either fluently or almost fluently. So let's just say I know at least a little bit about what it takes to learn how to speak a foreign language.

Out of all the different teaching methods I have experienced in audio programs over the years, this one is easily in the top 20 percent. As I mentioned in my review of another audio bundle by the same author, one of the main benefits is that the method of instruction is very intriguing and it will keep you alert and leave you wanting to practice more. Another plus is that this audiobook only features native Spanish speakers which I consider a huge benefit because it guarantees that I learn how to correctly pronounce all of the different words and phrases in the Spanish language.

This author's teaching style has earned him a well-deserved reputation in the foreign-language learning arena. In a nutshell, the teaching style uses a guess-listen-repeat method. His guess-listen-repeat method does two things. Firstly, the "guessing" aspect helps you to actually think in the target language. Secondly, the "repeating" aspect develops and reinforces the correct pronunciation.

Another major benefit of learning with this audiobook is that it takes Spanish grammar concepts and simplifies them. The approach that is used this audiobook is most effective for helping beginners learn how to conjugate Spanish verbs without over-explaining Spanish grammar concepts which would've been boring for many beginner-level students.


By the way, my review of this audiobook makes my fifth review of an audiobook by this same author. I am a member of an audiobook club and this is one of the audiobooks that was recently listed. We are required to reveal in our reviews that we received the audiobook at no charge in exchange for an honest review.

I thought I was ready for level 2

I thought I was ready for level 2 but realized that I needed a refresher course. Level 1 is perfect. I went back to the beginning to fill in the gaps and get ready for level 2. I'm pleased with this program. It was recommended by a friend of mine (Beatrice) and I'm happy I listened to her. I recommend this to anyone who learning Spanish.

A good audiobook overall,but I wouldn’t recommend it to real beginners and I sometimes had a problem understanding the speakers

I did enjoy the format of learning in this series,but I don’t think it will work well for real beginners as basic concepts aren’t explained.

I also sometimes had a problem understanding the female native speaker as she speaks too fast and unclear. I do realize that native Spanish speakers will be speaking fast,but for a beginner who needs to identify the words and build a vocabulary,it didn’t work well. Even when I put the speed to 0.75, I still couldn’t always make out what she was saying. I could hear the male speaker much better.

I do enjoy the series though and will consider getting the next series of lessons

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, or another program that focuses on repetition and memorization, this book is a great companion. Rather than memorizing phrases, it explains conjugation and sentence structure, which is really helpful. It also has a lot of sample conversations. This isn't a quick phrasebook, it contains in depth lessons that will help you to become fluent. At 30 hours, it contains a lot of content for a single credit.

The narration was really well done, the narrators left enough time to listen and repeat phrases, and enunciated in a way I never had trouble understanding. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

I give it 5 stars!

Buenos días. Although this review is a review of the software program, the only thing that separates the software program from the audio program currently available at Audible is that the software program gives you the option to see the text as part of a desktop program. The audible version provides you with a complete PDF transcript. Me llamo Darian George. Soy de un estado que se llama Illinois, en un pueblito que se llama Rockford. Si tú no puedes entenderme, es porque tú no hablas español. Entonces hoy… All right, enough of that. Now, people always ask me: “Darian, how did you learn Spanish? What methods did you use to help your Spanish?”

There’s this idea that because I’ve lived in Latin America, that I learned Spanish. Let me give you my background really quickly. I taught in Honduras for two years, I taught in Dominican republic for a year, and I also did a six-week study abroad in Costa Rica about six years ago.

Now, when I moved to Costa Rica I spoke minimum Spanish. Like, I knew “hola,” “¿cómo está?” y “¿dónde está el baño?” Now, people will assume that just by virtue of living in Latin America that you will learn how to speak Spanish. Now, that is not true at all. That’s like saying that just because you have a gym membership that you’ll get in shape. So, this is the program that I used.

I do want to go over five reasons why you too should use this program. Reason number one: it helps you develop the ear for Spanish. This is what you call the Listen and Reply method. A lot of people tell me this: “well, I understand it, I just can’t speak it.” Or, “I can read it and write it but I can’t speak it.” Guess what: you can’t speak it. But the whole point of communicating is to communicate.

People don’t walk around in English and say “hey, wait one second, let me write this down.” It would just be weird. So Spanish sounds like it’s spoken in cursive. Like, the words just run together.

For the longest, I never heard the word “hermano,” I always heard “mano.” And I’m like: “why do they keep on saying ‘hand’? I’m so confused.” And then one day, I heard the “hermano.” And that’s when I was like: “oh, that’s the whole word.” It’s very difficult because the words do run together and, if you don’t have the ear for it. So, that’s one thing that this method does for you. It helps you develop the ear for it by doing the Listen and Reply or the Call and Respond method.
All right, reason number two the creators of the program give you usable Spanish. They give you scenarios for every day, common things like ordering coffee at a restaurant, how to check in at a hotel, how to call a cab. I used another program (once again, I won’t say the name of it) and they taught me stuff like “the boy runs down the street” - “el niño corre.” Listen, I have not said “the boy runs down the street” since I started speaking Spanish. Another Spanish program taught me to say something like “the horse is underneath the airplane.” No one says that.

Reason number three: It’s only 30 minutes a day. Now again, I did a different program where I was dedicating maybe two to three hours per day. And I don’t even have a lot of time on my hands, but I really was desperate to learn Spanish. And so, I was studying, studying, studying, and I didn’t learn anything. So, this is only 30 minutes. Roughly 25 to 30 minutes, depending on you. This is something you can do during your morning commute, on your way back home, if you’re doing cardio at the gym… I’ve done it while I’m on the Stair-master, people looking at me like I’m crazy. But I don’t care, I’m learning Spanish.

Reason number four: The creators of the program use authentic Latin American voice actors. Like people from Colombia, people from Venezuela, people from the DR. You’re not going to get that 1960s Spain Spanish: “hola, ¿cómo está usted?” No one says that ever. You’ll look just silly if you do say that.

I remember seeing commercials on TV in Spanish for products. They were like: “Nuevo sabor. El refresco Coca-Cola.” This method is not going to teach you that type of Spanish. You won’t sound like a news broadcaster. It’s actually going to be authentic Spanish. But it’s not going to be street Spanish.

They’re not going to teach you street Dominican Spanish like: “¿qué lo que e? Dímelo.” Stuff like that, no. It’s not going to be hood Spanish, but it will be authentic Spanish that’s usable. They’ll teach you the difference between the formal and the informal tenses.

All right, and I would say reason number five: this is extremely affordable. I paid $97 for the software version. And there is a lot that is included. I was able to use it to get through a lot of lessons. For 97 bucks, that’s like, what? Like 50% of some Jordan’s. So, just think about it. Just don’t buy Jordan’s and you can have this program. This is not a huge investment. For 97 bucks, we’re talking about a program that actually works.

And you not going to have to pay anything close to $97 when you get the all-audio version from Audible. As I mentioned earlier, the only thing that separates the software program from the audio program currently available at Audible is that the software program gives you the option to see the text as part of a desktop program while the audible version provides you with a complete PDF transcript. So, that is my review of this program. I am Darian George signing off. I give it five stars. You guys have a wonderful day. Nos vemos.

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.

Handy way to learn Latin American Spanish

The Spanish covered in this audible book is Latin American Spanish. That made me happy after buying another audible book that seemed to cover both Latin American Spanish and Spain's Spanish. The majority of the people who I meet who speak Spanish are either from South America or Central America so learning Latin American Spanish really comes in a lot more handy than learning Spanish for Europe. I'll add that I also like that the lessons are broken up into 30 minute chunks, more or less, which makes them the ideal length for me anyway.
