The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You’ll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! Spanish Level 2 Lessons 26-30builds on material taught in prior lessons. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension and on learning to speak Spanish. Reading lessons are included at the end of lesson 30. These 16 lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Spanish and to provide you with some insight into Spanish culture with proverbs, common expressions, and a broad look at some of the things you’ll see when visiting a Spanish-speaking country. A reading booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

How to Really Learn a New Language

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

As a former ESL teacher, I recommend this program above all others. Throw out all your various language learning methods and keep only your reference books. Forget the silly stories and all the expensive language schools. With a slight amount of discipline - 30 mins per day - you'll be speaking and understanding more of your chosen second language with every carefully crafted lesson.

Who was your favorite character and why?

These lessons are perfectly constructed to build on previous lessons. You can repeat any lesson as much as you want while you move to a new lesson each day.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I spent a lot of time and money on teachers and lessons and learned a little but nowhere what I need to converse in Spanish in Mexico where I live half the year. I recommend you quit wasting money and get these lessons. Then join a conversation group and speak and listen to native speakers.

Any additional comments?

I still teach English as a Second Language on a volunteer basis in Mexico but I tell my students - get the Pimsleur method if you're really serious about learning fast.

Priceless - Affordable Intermediate Pimsleur!

What did you love best about Spanish Level 2 Lessons 26-30?

Only Pimsleur Beginner's lessons are available at our library. And their complete set costs a fortune. What a treat to find intermediate to advanced selections at a reasonable price!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Spanish Level 2 Lessons 26-30?

Pimsleur is famous for having one of the best teaching methods - anticipation and review at unexpected moments.

What does Pimsleur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Love the sounds of Spanish. Love to play with them.Confusing grammar like "le" vs. "lo" and "la" will become internalised effortlessly, after listening to this particular level a few times. Great for traffic jams - instead of being stressed you can pretend you're in another country, having dinner with a local family, etc.

Any additional comments?

The only other beginning Spanish audiobook I might recommend is Elisabeth Smith's"In a Day Spanish". (Don't like her Rush Hour Spanish). It contains lots of humour as she pretends she's teaching a young British guy next to her on the plane some last minute Spanish. Has lots of good memory aids too.
