Good foundation in learning the Spanish language

Any additional comments?

I studied Spanish language in College and continued learning it using alternative mobile applications but that was a long time ago and mostly just reading Spanish words and their translations. This audiobook is truly a refresher for a novice like me in Spanish language.

Listening to the stories allow me to enhance my comprehension and help me learn how to pronounce Spanish words the right way. The difficulty level will not stressed you out but rather help you learn the basics of the language while being entertained.

The stories involve words and phrases that can be used in a day to day conversation and the delivery of it is so clear and easy to understand. The pacing of the narrators voices both male and the female one allows me to comprehend the phrases effectively. Furthermore, the narrators enunciate the words fluently and in a conversational way. Grammatical structures were presented in a smart way that lets you grasp it easily and the vocabulary section at the last part was presented in a way that will stay in your memory. The audiobook is a really helpful tool to learn the Spanish language quickly and efficiently. It allows me to be more confident in learning the language. This medium is really an effective tool to brush up your Spanish and to let you have a good foundation of it.

Enjoy while Learning.....

I enjoyed the male speaker as I find the manner of what he says in a slow, sure fashion with the correct enunciation and pronunciation of the words & phrases. It’s as if he is trying to spell out the words as he speak them. Also, he knows when to emphasize points and delivers them well. He is such a good storyteller so that a non-Spanish speaker can somehow get a bit of an idea of what he was talking about and can understand the whole story.

On the other hand, the first female speaker presented herself well as she speaks the language in a way it is done in a natural setting – very conversational, fluent and you can feel the emotions as it is spoken. I love the highs & lows of her voice as she speaks depending on the situation.

The second female speaker with the conventional method of giving out the Spanish words and phrases and subsequently providing their counterpart English words and phrases is the simplest and easiest to do. I like that the conjugation of the verb is also being explained so helps one to understand better the use of the verb tense. However, this method maybe is not as interesting and engaging as the first two stories above.

Overall, I find this a useful and worthy audiobook both for a beginner and someone who has already a grasp of the Spanish language but wants to learn more. Truly, one can enjoy while learning!
