Program really helps you become fluent in Spanish

If you could sum up Power Spanish 2 Accelerated in three words, what would they be?

Great for fluency practice.

What other book might you compare Power Spanish 2 Accelerated to and why?

A good sequel to Power Spanish 1 Accelerated.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

You can use these audio lessons in any increments you like, whatever is convenient for you.

Any additional comments?

Power Spanish 2 Accelerated – Really Helps You Become Fluent in Spanish.
Power Spanish 2 packs a LOT of material into its eight hours of lessons. If you have a basic knowledge of the Spanish language then Power Spanish 2 Accelerated will power your Spanish to a higher level. This program is not for the fluent in Spanish. The whole reason for the program is to help you to BECOME fluent in the Spanish language. I really think I got more than my money’s worth. Power Spanish 2 Accelerated is not just a re-hash of Power Spanish 1 Accelerated with a few new words and phrased thrown in. There is all kinds of vocabulary words covering all kinds of topics, like eating and drinking and having parties, and buying tickets to go to places and finding your way around places.
I really learned with the variety of instruction. Sometimes you remember and recall, then you directly participate with native Spanish speakers. Often you listen and repeat and at other times you just listen. You get some simple grammar instructions in some of the sections of the program. They are very short and deal with the lesson being given at that moment.
The lessons are somewhat structured but still spontaneous and the overall presentation is relaxed and informal. The narration has a very personal feel to it. It is not like some language learning recordings where the narration is done by deep-voiced, monotone, stiff and formal radio type of narrators. Mark Frobose, the developer of the program, serves as the narrator/teacher throughout all of it with different educated Spanish speakers. Like I said, it has a very personal feel to it. Mark and the speaker even laugh occasionally as they are explaining funny things. It really does sound like it is a private lesson between you and the native speakers and the narrator.
But it does move pretty quick. This program is excellent for someone who really wants to learn to speak Spanish fast.

Extremely Well Conceived - Best on the Market

Would you listen to Power Spanish 2 Accelerated again? Why?

Yes, I would definitely listen to Power Spanish 2 Accelerated again. Power Spanish taught me how to communicate quickly and effectively in Spanish using my own original thoughts and did so without boredom or tedium. Mark Frobose doesn't follow the herd with mindless and old language programs like Pimsleur and Spanish Like Crasy. Mark's Language Audiobooks approach makes it easy and fun to really learn to speak and understand a new language. It is obvious that this method makes all others pale in comparison. From basic review to advanced idiomatic expressions taught in a situational format, Power Spanish 2 (just like the original Power Spanish 1) exceeded all of my expectations.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Power Spanish 2 Accelerated?

Teaching me how to really speak Spanish.

Which character – as performed by Mark Frobose – was your favorite?

I love the caring way he relates to the listeners while he teaches Spanish.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, Mark managed to create the most effective language-learning program where one section built on the one before it. He also succeeded to make it easy for the listener to go back to the start of a lesson to repeat.

Any additional comments?

Pimsleur, Rosetta Stone and Coffeebreak Espanol could learn a great deal from Language Audiobooks and Mark's excellent voice and educated Spanish speakers. Mark's spontaneous and expert delivery and of original sentence making templates, memory techniques and humor make the language learning process a real joy.

Good content, let down by poor sound quality

Would you try another book written by Mark Frobose or narrated by Mark Frobose?

Yes, the content is good and quickly paced. Ideal for a quick few weeks cramming before a trip to Spain.

However on this level 2 program, the male Spanish speaker is predominant, and to be honest, he mumbles terribly. There are some words and phrases, that no matter how many times I listen to it, I can't make out what he's saying or repeat it clearly.

Would you recommend Power Spanish 2 Accelerated to your friends? Why or why not?

yes, with the caveat that the mumbling will annoy them

What didn’t you like about Mark Frobose’s performance?

There is a lot of Spanish in this course and the basics are really drilled in, in a similar way that FSI courses do. No pretence at magic leaarning like the picture-based courses

Could you see Power Spanish 2 Accelerated being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Don't understand question

Any additional comments?

This course is a usual addition to other courses, sits well with Michel Thomas & Pimsleur, and covers much more vocabulary that those two put together. The drills can be quite fast-paced, so really do drill the words in. I think most learners would have to go through this twice, because so much is crammed into the 8 hours

could be better

The native speaker speaks as he would normally but there is not always a break down of the words used.
There should be a word for word breakdown and the sentences should sometimes be spoken slower as well as normally as I found some sentences difficult to understand some of the wording
