Publisher's Summary

This Audiobook will take you through the basics of Spanish with Basic Bootcamp, All About, and Pronunciation lessons.
The five Basic Bootcamp lessons each center on a practical, real-life conversation. At the beginning of the lesson, we'll introduce the background of the conversation. Then, you'll hear the conversation two times: one time at natural native speed, and one time with English translation. After the conversation, you'll learn carefully selected vocabulary and key grammar concepts. Next, you'll hear the conversation one time at natural native speed. Finally, practice what you have learned with the review track. In the review track, a native speaker will say a word or phrase from the dialogue, wait three seconds, and then give you the English translation. Say the word aloud during the pause. Halfway through the review track, the order will be reversed. The English translation will be provided first, followed by a three-second pause, and then the word or phrase from the dialogue. Repeat the words and phrases you hear in the review track aloud to practice pronunciation and reinforce what you have learned.
In the fifteen All About lessons, you’ll learn all about Spanish and Spain. Our native teachers and language experts will explain everything you need to know to get started in Spanish, including how to understand the writing system, grammar, pronunciation, cultural background, tradition, society, and more -- all in a fun and educational format!
The five Pronunciation lessons take you step-by-step through the most basic skill in any language: how to pronounce words and sentences like a native speaker. You’ll go from basic concepts to advanced tips and will soon sound like you’ve been speaking Spanish your entire life.

Not very good

What would have made Learn Spanish - Level 1: Introduction to Spanish, Volume 1: Lessons 1-25 better?

If they had actually given me some lessons instead of giving me lots of irritating information on Spanish speaking people .


Would you ever listen to anything by Innovative Language Learning again?

No


Any additional comments?

I did a Pimsleur course on Beginner German and that was very easy to listen to and the lessons made sense .This course was totally unprofessional and I didn't learn a thing .

What you pay for

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This is a collection of podcasts. I found the back and forth banter of the two hosts valuable for some cultural background and distinctions between the various Spanish dialects but as for being a tool to learn the language this was less than helpful. However, it only cost five dollars. I reccomend Pimsleur.


Would you be willing to try another book from Innovative Language Learning? Why or why not?

No. Did not meet my expectations the first time.
