Power Spanish 2 Accelerated – Really Helps You Become Fluent in Spanish.
Power Spanish 2 packs a LOT of material into its eight hours of lessons. If you have a basic knowledge of the Spanish language then Power Spanish 2 Accelerated will power your Spanish to a higher level. This program is not for the fluent in Spanish. The whole reason for the program is to help you to BECOME fluent in the Spanish language. I really think I got more than my money’s worth. Power Spanish 2 Accelerated is not just a re-hash of Power Spanish 1 Accelerated with a few new words and phrased thrown in. There is all kinds of vocabulary words covering all kinds of topics, like eating and drinking and having parties, and buying tickets to go to places and finding your way around places.
I really learned with the variety of instruction. Sometimes you remember and recall, then you directly participate with native Spanish speakers. Often you listen and repeat and at other times you just listen. You get some simple grammar instructions in some of the sections of the program. They are very short and deal with the lesson being given at that moment.
The lessons are somewhat structured but still spontaneous and the overall presentation is relaxed and informal. The narration has a very personal feel to it. It is not like some language learning recordings where the narration is done by deep-voiced, monotone, stiff and formal radio type of narrators. Mark Frobose, the developer of the program, serves as the narrator/teacher throughout all of it with different educated Spanish speakers. Like I said, it has a very personal feel to it. Mark and the speaker even laugh occasionally as they are explaining funny things. It really does sound like it is a private lesson between you and the native speakers and the narrator.
But it does move pretty quick. This program is excellent for someone who really wants to learn to speak Spanish fast.

Extremely Well Conceived - Best on the Market

Would you listen to Power Spanish 2 Accelerated again? Why?

Yes, I would definitely listen to Power Spanish 2 Accelerated again. Power Spanish taught me how to communicate quickly and effectively in Spanish using my own original thoughts and did so without boredom or tedium. Mark Frobose doesn't follow the herd with mindless and old language programs like Pimsleur and Spanish Like Crasy. Mark's Language Audiobooks approach makes it easy and fun to really learn to speak and understand a new language. It is obvious that this method makes all others pale in comparison. From basic review to advanced idiomatic expressions taught in a situational format, Power Spanish 2 (just like the original Power Spanish 1) exceeded all of my expectations.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Power Spanish 2 Accelerated?

Teaching me how to really speak Spanish.

Which character – as performed by Mark Frobose – was your favorite?

I love the caring way he relates to the listeners while he teaches Spanish.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, Mark managed to create the most effective language-learning program where one section built on the one before it. He also succeeded to make it easy for the listener to go back to the start of a lesson to repeat.

Any additional comments?

Pimsleur, Rosetta Stone and Coffeebreak Espanol could learn a great deal from Language Audiobooks and Mark's excellent voice and educated Spanish speakers. Mark's spontaneous and expert delivery and of original sentence making templates, memory techniques and humor make the language learning process a real joy.

Makes You Nearly Fluent In Spanish

Any additional comments?

Amazing program to learn high level Spanish. After successfully completing Power Spanish I, I really needing a program like this. I got it from Language Audiobooks went from being conversational to functionally fluent in Spanish in less time than you could imagine. It really worked for me. A different approach along with a good narrator makes new language learning so much easier. No guessing, full translation of words in English. I learned to communicate in Spanish with Spanish speakers wherever I go. Fast and easy way to learn Spanish! Great recall memory technique, great native speakers and enjoyable too. A great value for money program!

A must try for anyone serious about advancing to functional fluency in Spanish?

Converse Spontaneously in Original Spanish

If you could sum up Power Spanish 2 Accelerated in three words, what would they be?

Spontaneous and Flexible Learning

What did you like best about this story?

This is a great program, which completely follows up the fabulous – Power Spanish 1 Accelerated.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Can’t really do this all in one sitting. It’s designed to be used during waiting times, bit by bit.

Any additional comments?

Power Spanish 2 Accelerated is an awesome program to learn a more high level of Spanish. The narrator did an excellent job, narrates and converses with such an ease, explains the situations, the words meaning in English and what to say about the native Spanish speakers. They greatly compliment the narrator and add native accent and depth & tone. They go fast in the beginning, then slow, let you repeat, then again fast, which helped me to converse and understand different tenses in Spanish. A great learning program, easy to learn and spontaneous!

I have been learning Spanish from Mark Frobose audio books and this is my third one, and I learned even more than what I expected, really worth the money. But, this is a little higher version, must learn from Power Spanish 1 Accelerated first to go with the flow of this program. I learned to speak a lot of vocabulary words even more than previous courses, learned the different tenses, how to make your own conversational sentences while conversing with a Latin Spanish speaker from this program. I can’t recommend this program highly enough.

A really special language-learning atmosphere is created by the friendly narration in this program Excellent combination of seriousness and humorous tones, which makes learning great fun. It is the best I have ever used, you can learn to speak Spanish with such an ease and can also listen to this great program wherever you are and whenever you are free. Try it. I'm sure it will work for you like it did for me. I feel so happy that now I can converse in Spanish so fluently, all thanks goes Mark Frobose’s great narration and his trained native Spanish speakers from all over the Spanish-speaking world.

I Really Love This Program

What did you love best about Power Spanish 2 Accelerated?

Being of Hispanic origin, I wanted to learn and master the language of my parents' homeland.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Power Spanish 2 Accelerated?

Power Spanish 2 really taught me to speak and understand a lot of "real" down-to-earth Spanish that the native Spanish speakers use.

What about Mark Frobose’s performance did you like?

I especially loved all the expressions, just like the ones my family uses all the time that I never completely understood. When you say these to a native Spanish speaker, they're like .....

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Caramba .... this girl really knows Spanish.
Also, all the vocabulary, teaching you how to put together sentences in the past, present, future.

Any additional comments?

Great program that is really teaching me a lot of intermediate Spanish. I use it every day to practice and I love it.

Better Than Expected – Great Tapescript

What made the experience of listening to Power Spanish 2 Accelerated/Complete Written Listening Guide/8 One-Hour Audio Lessons the most enjoyable?

I loved Power Spanish 1 and moved on to Power Spanish 2. I was not disappointed. In fact, Power Spanish 2 was even better than I expected. More advanced than Power Spanish 1, and the same great technique. The tape script really helps too. Must buy.
