As you hear each sentence first in English, then in Spanish, your mind links the two, just as effortlessly as you learn the words to a song you like.
Hearing the chapter repeated, entirely in Spanish, after you have absorbed the Spanish vocabulary reinforces the Spanish and greatly improves your ability to listen and comprehend an entire Spanish passage. You do not need to know any Spanish to learn from No-Work Spanish audiobooks. On the other hand, if you already know some Spanish, you will learn that much faster.
Poster Girl is the story of a messy, average kid, Paula who wants to show up her goody two-shoes rival, Cynthia. To pull off this feat, she's got to make a great science poster, better than Cynthia's. But of course there are problems. Like the fact that Paula waited until the day before the poster was due to begin. Or the fact that any autumn leaves that she tapes on the poster are going to turn brown and crumple up. Paula keeps scrambling as nothing goes quite like she expected. Poster Girl vocabulary covers a wide range of indoor and outdoor concepts, including:
better, more, dirty, neat, clean, pretty, beautiful, short, warm, easy, annoying, awful, soft, dry, clever, lovely, big, stuffed, healthy, confused, tall

I am enjoying listening to this book and learning new Spanish words... but... WHERE is the PDF study file? It states that it comes with the CD but why not with Audible.com??? I have purchased other Audible classes, lectures and study subjects and most have PDF files attached to the "my library" section of Audible.

oi vey! what?!
first off, I understand that the purpose of this book is to increase spanish comprehension in a more narrative format, and in this, it is an excellent resource.
but, I must say, the narrator is SO PAINFUL to listen to!! It almost sounds like they did it for a joke! (especially the older brother). I understand that for the purpose of the narrative, the voices must change, but this narrator is so unskilled, so cartoon like in the choice of character voice, that it makes it really hard to stay focused on the task at hand, ie: to focus on the narrative itself and the spanish in particular.
It's a good resource, but you have to work a bit to get past the excruciating narration. caveat emptor!
4 stars for effectiveness (like I said, as long as you can get past the narrator),
1 star for performance (if I could give less...)
2 stars for story, but the story itself is whatever.
