Look forward to surprising my friend by speaking Espanol )
Michel Thomas has an authentic feel in the way he teaches. the style is natural, the students who learn from him give us a parallel to relate to.

One of my most favourite practical Spanish lessons. Brings a new approach to learning through absorption as opposed to learning through memorisation.
I had to listen to it quite a few times but it is working for me at the minute. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is wanting to learn Spanish as an additional language.
As a complete beginner to Spanish I was expecting this audiobook to maybe teach me the alphabet, some numbers, some basic greeting ... it did so much more than that! I listened to the recording in the car on the way to work and even after the first 30 minutes, I was able to put together some very sophisticated sentence structures and understood, based on common letter patterns and cognates, how to construct many more. Michel Thomas' style of teaching and the use of two students in the recording ensures that you quickly learn how to build up full, very useful, sentences, as well as understand what not to do (as the students make exactly the same mistakes that you will!) I would whole-heartedly recommend it.

Would you be willing to try another book from Michel Thomas? Why or why not?
Yes. I really like this way of learning languages. Given basic words or ways of saying things and then having to work out how to say phrases from these. Great learning in a kind of problem solving way where the mind naturally picks up and remembers things from almost working out/realising and teaching itself, rather than repetition.
Works well for my mind and memory that way.

Any additional comments?
Great method but if you are using headphones you will be assaulted by old man sloppy mouth noise even when he is not talking. I figured if you turn the tv on and put the stereo on on the other side of the room you can almost eliminated the wet mouth noises. It is horrific to listen to and its delivered this no right in your ears through the head phones! I am struggling to get past this. Maybe get some rubbish quality headphones.
