Not for the beginner

I purchased this audio lesson set (volume 1 & 2) based on its description. Having had some Spanish classes in my past, this should have been relatively easy for me to pick up. I burned it to CD to use in my car in order to have an easy method to rewind/replay. No matter how I adjusted my car stereo, I found many of the words to be indistinguishable. On top of that, I found the accompanying music only added to the work of trying to understand the pronunciation of words. The music was almost at the same volume as the speaker. I tried the CD on my PC and then tried streaming it on my PC - both with similar dissatisfaction. I then gave the lesson a try on my MP3 player, which plays any other audiobook and music without the slightest problem. Nope. So, I gave up and purchased "Learning Spanish Like Crazy" (also offered by Audible). Seems a little better so far but I'm only as far as the first few lessons....

spanish beat

This is an intereting way to learn spanish. Somehow they manage to use background music to augment their language lesson. You don't speak to the beat or anything like that, but the music takes the boredome out of repeating words and phrases. It is a clever learning tool.

However, the phrases they teach are not all that great - early phrases involve learning how to order wine for instance. There doesn't seem to be any obvious reason for teaching you the phrases they do.

I've had some Spanish classes years ago and found this a good way to review and get back into the language. However, if you've never spoken spanish before, there are probably better programs.

Excellent!

I listened to this in the car on my way to and from work. I learned how to ask for a table for two well over a week ago, and I'm still remembering it! This is quite impressive!
The CD will need a few more listens until it all sticks in my head this well, but based on the amount of information that I've retained just from a single run-through, I am highly impressed with this title. I may try others in the series!

Fun and Painless

Frantically trying to keep up with my 6 year old son and his Spanish learnt after primary school each Tuesday. This is the most soothing audio language tutor I have come across. Oh that it was available when I sat my O-level Latin many years ago. The paced repetition of words and phrases linked to the music background makes the language stick. I shall buy 'Rapid Spanish: Volume 2' soon.
