Great review

This is a wonderful review of Spanish. I don't believe it is for a true beginner. There is far too much vocabulary and we are already using the preterite and present perfect tenses.
There are dialogues where the native speakers (one man and one woman) give a phrase a native or near native speed, then they repeat it very slowly so you can clearly understand every thing the say, Then the phrase is repeated at native speed again. there are pauses between each phrase so you can practice the phrase. I appreciate them using the informal form throughout all dialogues.
