as physician and taking care of multiple Spanish only speaking patience I am learning to speak more Spanish myself. I found this audible book a great service to myself that plan to share with my staff.
Of the classes I've taken and masses of books I've bought, this is the most effective. No gimmicks, she just dives in. She doesn't dwell on irrelevant factors of learning Spanish.
She instinctively understands what it takes get another language into your head, despite the dogma of classes and other books. She doesn't put the cart before the horse. There is a very frustrating ego aspect to most language learning that makes teachers and authors focus on things that keep you from ever really getting anywhere with Spanish... She doesn't have that.
My only wish is that it were much much longer. No exaggeration, all other books feel like a waste of money compared to this.
One other point, she first has native pronunciation and then repeats it herself with an English speakers accent. This is very helpful and allows you to understand the spelling of a word. Many letters in Spanish sound the same in different contexts, with only microscopic differences. This strategy makes for a good microscope for the non-native speaker. No time for gimmicks. This is for people that NEED to learn Spanish, as I did. It greatly increased my ability to schedule and even treat patients. Much more than classes or other books.
