Power Spanish Accelerated: The Best Audio Program

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Without reservation. Being able to form your own sentences to say what you want to say is obviously a major goal of the Power Spanish Accelerated audio program. In fact, the creator seems to be obsessed with that objective. In order to do that you have to remember what you learn. The Power Spanish method somehow gets you to quickly memorize large amounts of Spanish without your being fully aware that you are doing so. There is nothing mysterious about it. It is simply a matter of constantly presenting new material while at the same time reviewing previous material. You are moving forward even during those times that you are looking back. Sometimes you look backwards but you never move backwards. Power Spanish always keeps you charging ahead and learning to speak and understand Spanish quickly – more quickly, I believe, than either of two other programs that I have also used.

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

I have purchased and listened to beginning level Spanish audio programs produced by Pimsleur and Behind the Wheel. You'll learn a fair amount of Spanish using either of them. But the Power Spanish program using more native Spanish speakers than either of the other two. It also contains a lot of creative and unique drills and exercises, including one that is called "Audio Snapshot," that aren't found in either Behind the Wheel or Pimsleur. Power Spanish is very upbeat. It's easy to listen to. The others tend to get monotonous after awhile. Power Spanish just has more variety, which keeps you listening again and again. To get the full effect of a language audio program you have to listen to it again and again. If you get bored you won't do that.

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

There are no 'characters' in the traditional sense because this is not fiction audio book. The narrator and native speakers function as 'characters,' so to speak. Power Spanish Accelerated has a variety of native speaking 'characters.' You don't have to listen to the same one or two speakers throughout the entire program. This variety makes Power Spanish Accelerated more fun to listen to than other language audio program that I have heard.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A few of the lines might make you laugh. And being able to use what you learn to make some of your own sentences is nothing to cry about.

Any additional comments?

I found Power Spanish Accelerated to be quite fast and effective at teaching basic conversational Spanish. It teaches a lot of vocabulary words, it has what for me is a very effective memory retention technique, it uses several native speakers, and, as language audio courses go, it is simply fun to listen to.

Excellent..Strongly recommend it..

Would you consider the audio edition of Power Spanish I Accelerated - 8 One Hour Audio Lessons - Complete Transcript/Listening Guide (English and Spanish Edition) to be better than the print version?

Yes - I bought these CDs from Amazon and have been extremely happy with this purchase. Use it in my car and listen while driving. Am now more comfortable talking in Spanish or ordering in restaurants than I have ever been. I'd been trying to learn from books and Rosetta Stone, but none gave me the confidence to speak in Spanish like these tapes have.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mark Frobose and the native speakers are all favorite characters of mine. They do a great job of keeping the tempo upbeat and me motivated. The "listen and repeat" exercises are simple and practical – they are not only helping me speak and pronounce correctly but have also increased my response time to answer in Spanish tremendously. There is a nice pace throughout and repetitive nature of the exercises makes it easy to recall and improve.

Have you listened to any of Mark Frobose’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listed to any of Mark Frobose's other tapes ..but now that I have listened to Part 1, I am looking forward to Part II of the series

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I guess the biggest "aha" moment for me when I Mark broke up Spanish into simple usable high frequency phrases that I could begin to use immediately. This happened from the first CD itself.

Any additional comments?

If I had known these CD’s would help me so much, I'd have bought the set sooner. Thank you Mark - you are a great teacher and hopefully you will make more such audio books..as you are doing a great service helping adults like me learn new languages.
