From My Mind into My Mouth

What did you love best about Conversational Latin-American Spanish 2?

Complicated sentences are said more slowly at first and then speeded up to normal talking speed. That makes it much easier to learn and remember the words and say them in the right order.


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

It's not necessary to listen all at once. You can decide for yourself to listen a little or a lot at one time.


Any additional comments?

I am minoring in Spanish in college. Next summer I am going to Mexico City for two months. Part of the program will include Spanish classes at the university there. I can’t wait! I have made good grades in Spanish classes but I know I can’t really speak it yet so I got this Conversational Latin American Spanish audio course. This course takes the head knowledge that I gained from Spanish classes and puts it to use in actual speaking scenarios.

Right into the first section I was sure that I was in over my head. Then after giving several sentences at normal speed the speakers slowed it down, saying the longer more difficult sentences slowly and then speeding it back up. That’s the way it was throughout the program and I found it a perfect way to learn. You hear how it is said and then it is slowed down for you so that you can learn it and then it is gradually speeded back up to normal talking speed. It’s the perfect way to learn! I’m lovin’ it!

I listen for a few minutes while I am walking to class and sometimes when I have an hour or so between classes. I listen on the bus when I go downtown to shop. Sometimes I listen at night for fifteen or twenty minutes after I get into bed. I have found that I can listen for five minutes or for forty-five minutes. Sometimes I listen to three or four minutes several times in a row and other times I do a whole section non-stop. It doesn’t matter. You can jump around as much as you want, although I personally recommend that you listen to the entire program from beginning to end the first time through, but you don’t have to do it the first time through all in the same sitting. After you’ve heard it all you can go back and forth and jump around. I have found that a good technique is to blindly run the audio up for a few minutes and then stop it and just start there.

I know I’m obsessed. But I know that this course will really give me a jump on being able to converse with people while I am learning Spanish in Mexico this coming summer. These great portable audio lessons have taken my Spanish from my brain and put it onto my tongue. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I want them to do a conversational Spanish level 3 so that I can continue to improve after I return.

Nice Job -- Worth the Money

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

You don't listen all in one sitting.You listen to as little or to as much as you want to at one time. You can skip around in the lessons, too.


Any additional comments?

I learned quite a bit of useful Spanish from this program. Some words I already knew but what was most valuable to me about these lessons was the way the speakers said sentences kind of slow at first and then said them again faster at a regular speaking rate. I don’t have much trouble learning new vocabulary words in Spanish but I get tongue tied when I try to speak them, especially several words fast one right after the others. But when the Spanish is all said at a slowed down pace like with this program, and then speeded up, it makes it a lot easier to get used to speaking Spanish like it is really spoken. This teaching process really worked for me and I learned to speak much better Spanish from it.

A lot more than one hour of dialog is given, and the conversation that is presented is long and multi-faceted, but it is fortunately, broken down into digestible bits that can be practiced and understood. This is extremely helpful to the learner who comes in from nowhere and hears a lot of Spanish spoken at native speed that sounds like unintelligible "gibberish" unless it is deciphered and explained.

It might be a little hard for a complete beginner but if you have some Spanish experience in your background, like a semester or two back in school, then you’re probably at the right level for this audio program. Your ability to speak in Spanish will definitely get better fast.
