This book will provide you with the 100 verbs you have to learn first to get around when traveling or interacting with Spanish-speaking people.

A MUST HAVE for learning and pronunciation

No more struggling and guessing ! Perfect. Each verb introduced and used in all six persons in a simple sentence, thereby it can be heard in a natural sense. Past, present, and future. Beautiful native accent of narrarator. Easy to understand narrator speech. Definate must have. 5 stars.

Only 80 verbs?,some grammatical/translation errors

A great idea, much higher yield than conjugating umpteen tenses of a few verbs.
However, be aware that only contains, by my count, 80 verbs, which is a bummer, since it appears to be false advertising.
Also, conjugation is in present, only one of the 2 Spanish past tenses (the preterit) and only one of the Spanish future tense forms. This is an understandable simplification, but leads to some problems (see grammatical errors example, below).

Some grammatical errors:
1. Used preterit in verb "correr" when imperfect (the other Spanish past tense) would have been correct. In the audiobook "Nosotros corrimos todos los dias," which should be "Nosostros corriamos todos los dias." (I am unable to do proper accent symbol on my keybord).

2. "Acordar" present conjugation is actually preterit (i.e. past), which is repeated again in the past section.

3. "Servir" present for Ustedes is "sirve" instead of "sirven" (or was the 'n' just too soft?)


Some translation errors:
1. "We rised the glass" instead of "We raised the glass."

Other issues:
Verbs "jugar" and "golpear" are mentioned, but not conjugated.

to appear- aparecer, but then actual verb example conjugated is parecer (also, use imperfect, correctly, in this example- ?only time this past tense used in entire audiobook)
