SUPER for practicing your Spanish speaking and conversation skills. But you don’t have to be advanced. This is for intermediate and more advanced students of Spanish. One of the native speakers tells you to Enjoy the Process. You can do just that with this intensive conversation program.<br/><br/>The program starts out with a section where you just listen to the teacher and to the Spanish speakers. The Spanish speaker talks so fast that I at first thought Oh No I am not going to be able to follow this. But to my surprise and delight the very next section takes the same material and slows it down so that you can repeat after the speaker. The speaker says each sentence three or four times speaking just a little bit faster each time. All you have to do is to try to say each word or sentence at the same speed and with the same pronunciation as the Spanish speaker. You speed up as you go along.<br/><br/>The whole program is like that. It shows you what it sounds like at normal speed then it slows it down and then speeds it back up a little bit at a time. I was astounded at how that made it pretty easy to able to mimic the native Spanish speaker both in my speed and in my pronunciation. The teacher regularly reminds you to focus on your accent/pronunciation. The final section wraps up the program with a comprehensive review of everything that you’ve learned.<br/><br/>Beginning language programs have to give you the material in little bitty bites because you know nothing or almost nothing. You are saying the words but at a beginning level it’s hard to feel like you are really speaking the language. This program gives you nice big bites one at a time, but not too big. It makes you feel like you are having a real life conversation in Spanish. Come to think of it you are!<br/><br/>Power Spanish Conversation Intensive is truly INTENSIVE without being overwhelming. If you listen to this Spanish learning audio program several times your ability to speak Spanish and your confidence in speaking it will increase several fold. This is really SUPER great practice for people who are tired of just repeating simple words and phrases but who want to REALLY START SPEAKING Spanish in a real world way. And who want to Enjoy the Process as they learn.<br/>

I have tried Duolinguo, Pimsleur, Berlitz, Rosetta Stone. Nothing even comes close to this program for teaching you how to speak conversational Spanish. I believe the reason for this is because of the numerous native speakers, the different speeds, the golden opportunity to actually PRACTICE this stuff. I can't believe the number of reviews I've read from people who hate to repeat stuff. Not repeating and practicing a language is like not training for a sport or any competition. If you don't train, you get your butt kicked in reality.<br/><br/>I'd rather train and learn. This program is the "real deal". Buy it and use it. You'll be glad you did.<br/>

Same scenario is repeatedly played for over an hour, going over the same material in the same way.
I found this annoying and boring
