I'm a beginner in learning Spanish and I found that immersion is always the hardest since even when you may know the words and their meaning, trying to listen to native speakers (through TV or songs) can be challenging because of the speed of their talking and the little accent nuances that every person has. And even when it comes to reading materials, they are either too hard or too easy (child level) And honestly, I get bored of all the "Hello, my name is..." teaching sentences that everyone uses.
The nice thing about this book is that it gives you a full story to listen to, it's not too hard that you can't understand a thing, and not too easy where you feel like a child. It is read in clear Spanish, by a good reader that makes the story sound interesting without you getting lost.
The new vocabulary is provided to you at the end of the story. And you actually feel like you are listening to a proper audiobook and not a teaching book.
But with that said, there are two things to keep in mind:
1) You need to have a basic knowledge of Spanish, I wouldn't say it is for complete beginners who know no words in Spanish, but more for the Level 2-3 beginner to intermediate.
2) You still need to make an effort to get the best of this book, you can't just listen to it in one go and do nothing, I found myself repeating the stories over and over as I learned new words, I checked the accompanying PDF since I like to see the words too (The PDF is also very very helpful).
In conclusion, if you are serious about learning Spanish and improving it then this book is definitely for you. And I'm actually looking forward to other releases in other languages I am interested in.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. It has not affected my review in any way.
