Publisher's Summary

Are you having trouble communicating with your Spanish speaking help?
Did you study Spanish in school but find yourself unable to construct even simple sentences in Spanish?

Due to our unique method of teaching, you will be amazed at how much Spanish you will learn and retain in just five hours!
What makes this Spanish course special?
Efficient Learning
Our breakthrough method allows you to retain most if not all of what you learn and immediately put it to use. The key is interactivity: Instead of making you repeat words and sentences, you are encouraged to think and apply what you learned. Using the words and concepts you learn throughout the course, you will build Spanish sentences and translate Spanish sentences into English right from the start. The course also makes use of the many similarities between English and Spanish so you can associate new Spanish words with English words you already know.
You'll learn relevant words and sentences that you can put to use immediately. This will allow you to reinforce what you've learned through real life practice and motivate you to complete the course.
This course only takes about five hours to complete. Many people buy expensive Spanish courses and never find the time to complete the course. But you should be able to find five hours. Even if you only study for half an hour each day, you'll be done in a little more than a week!
Learning should be fun and rewarding. It is hard to describe the pleasure you experience when you manage to construct complete sentences in Spanish after just half an hour into the course. In addition, the course is peppered with quotes and anecdotes, keeping the learning fun and exciting.

Practical and Amazing

I honestly did not know what to expect when I bought this book. We have a Spanish speaking maid (from Guatemala) and two kids and I was having a really hard time giving her instructions or understanding what she was saying.
I searched for a Spanish book for homemakers on Amazon and stumbled upon this book. It's offered both as kindle and as audio book and I thought audio made more sense for me, as I can listen to it while working in the kitchen.
So I thought I'd buy this book and give it try.
Frankly, I'm blown away!! I never thought learning Spanish could be so easy!
After just one half hour into the course, I was already talking in Spanish and the maid seemed to understand everything I was saying.
It took longer for me to understand what the maid was saying, because she obviously uses a larger vocabulary, but as I progress more thru the course, I'm starting to understand more and more.
The course does not put too much emphasis on sounding like a native, only as far as is needed to be understood.
The best part is how each word is introduced in a way that makes it easy to remember.

Wow! I learnt so much in so little time!

Where does Spanish for the Busy Housewife rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

From a practical perspective it's way up on top as it taught me so much practical Spanish language in relatively so short a time. I find myself able to communicate with my Spanish speaking housekeeper so much more effectively. I don't know who is more tickled...she or I!!

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the ease of presentation. The presenter was a pleasure to listen to. Her voice was clear and melodic and held my attention throughout.

Which scene was your favorite?

The chapter on greeting and showing concern was my favorite...I think my housekeeper really appreciated the fact that I could greet her and not just give directions...

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"Desperate Housewives Learn Spanish"

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this audio book for quick and lasting mastery of functional Spanish! Thank you David and Hadassah for a wonderful product and an enjoyable as well as practical experience!
