Really quite good

Based on other reviews, I almost did not purchase this audiobook... I am glad I decided to ignore others' advice and go ahead with it anyway. Now that I have been listening to it for the past week, I felt it may be useful to add my own review to the group.

Other reviews are correct in the assessment that this is not the most exciting way to learn some spanish. The book is arranged in lesson-chapters, such as "getting around" , "directions", "numbers" "shopping". And a female voice speaks a word/phrase in english, while a male voice repeats it in spanish twice (and in normal tempo, i.e. not slowly). This is certainly not choice entertainment. And I think if a listener did not know a word of spanish, this book could be very frustrating.

HOWEVER, if you are serious about learning some spanish and ALREADY know a little bit (a few words, phrases and grammar) this is a GREAT choice. I came in knowing a bit and feel like I have learned many important phrases and basic sentence constructions. Furthermore, instead of presenting a non-repeating laundry list of spanish, many of the phrases and words make 3rd, 4th, 5th etc entrances in other chapters, so you really familiarize yourself with them. I listen to it on my way to work and when I am walking places; I can zone in and out and still be learning, and flip to different chapters on which I am weaker.

I have not tried other audiobooks, but if you are serious about learning spanish, know a little bit already (and maybe have a dictionary handy), my rating is: Muy Bueno!

I agree with the two previous reviewers. This is not the way to learn a language.
