Buy Intro Beg Span by Michel Thomas: Covers 1 & 2
I like this but it is the same as the first half of the introduction course. The second half is lesson 2. Save your money and just buy the introduction.
Michel Thomas Beginner Spanish is like Pimlseur Approach but with much less repetition. Michel Thomas gives a more logical reasoning of how to speak and think in Spanish.
Yes. I have listened to the introduction of Michele Thomas. Is the same as Lesson 1 and 2. Buy the Introduction series to save money,
It made me happy that I found an interesting approach to learning Spanish. It is much better than just memorizing a bunch of words. He helps you form sentences through a list of frequently used words in our language we use daily.
Hard to understand
In what I can only assume is a very thick (German?) accent the narrorator is very hard to understand or hear so it makes it impossible to learn.
Hard to hear and understand, gave up about twenty minutes in as the accent was so thick it made it impossible to learn anything or understand what was beings said.
Change the narrorator otherwise this whole lesson is useless.
