Publisher's Summary

I have put together a comprehensive list of the 1000 most used words in Spanish with Spanish and English sentences.
Learning a language really takes time and effort. Don't be fooled. Ongoing dedication really will get you through.
You can use this list to build up your knowledge of Spanish words. It is a comprehensive list with examples of the words in English and Spanish to give you a good idea of how to use the word.
I recommend setting yourself achievable targets to make sure you stay on track with your learning. You could aim to learn 10 words (or less if you wish) a day. Five in the morning and five for the afternoon with the evening to check you remember them all. That may sound a lot to learn but consider all the times you have free when you could quickly learn a new verb. For example on the bus, waiting for the bus, on the toilet (when there are very few distractions!), during your lunch break, when you wake up in bed, when eating your breakfast, just before you shower (to practice in the shower), when you are waiting for someone; the list goes on and so do your opportunities to learn.
So don't be overwhelmed by learning a new language. Set yourself small daily goals and time will fly. Before you know it you will find yourself with an extensive vocabulary.

Se Habla Español, Okay, not really...

My Spanish is rather limited to what I recall from a high school class and to what I use at work (Alto!, Manos arriba!) but with this audio book I am starting to expand that vocabulary.

I would say that for someone with no knowledge of the language this would be a very hard book to follow. If you can speak and understand some Spanish this book can be pretty helpful. I shared it with my daughter, who is in high school Spanish, and she thought it was great.

I rated the "story" a three star because there really isn't a story, but rather "1000 Spanish Words in Context". So while the rating may not exactly be fair, I found this audio book difficult to listen to for very long. That said, I think the pronunciation was excellent and an audio book is a great medium for this content.

This is written for a Spanish speaker learning English! Not an English speaker learning Spanish. Completely useless to rattle off a word, phrase or entire sentence in Spanish, THEN give the English. And its going WAY too fast. If it had a free ebook companion, I would have given it a shot. It does not. I am returning this. Paul Noble's books are really meant for audio. I just picked this one to add to my vocabulary.

Great resource

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, not for an absolute beginner but for anyone around intermediate level. It's full of useful words and interesting examples. Good for listening to on headphones on walks or to get the Kindle edition and read / listen at the same time. In fact it would be great to get a PDF with the audio purchase.

Would you recommend 1000 Spanish Words in Context to your friends? Why or why not?

So many errors!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

1. Repeating the line in Spanish again after the line is spoken in English - similar to comments made by many others. This would make the product infinitely more useful.2. Fix all the mistakes!! Why wasn't this proofed? There are examples that aren't intended for the words they follow (10+ examples), English translations where the target word has been substituted (!!??) (e.g. matar - to kill - then in the sentence she used the word for hunt!!), random continuity problems, double examples for words that only have one meaning and single examples for words with multiple meanings etc. And random errors like "Christmas is my favorite month""This book is only 4 hours long you could've checked it and fixed all these errors. It's intended to be listened to many times so these things get pretty annoying after a couple of listens.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

To be fair she had very good diction, accent and pace, excellent narrator for this sort of thing. But the uncorrected errors!

Did 1000 Spanish Words in Context inspire you to do anything?

It inspired me to leave this review in the hope that the creators don't make these mistakes in future. It's an otherwise excellent product.

Any additional comments?

I disagree with any negative comments about the pace - it's very clear, well timed and easy to follow.
