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.

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!
