Get fluent with Fluent Penguin language learning tools. Designed for self-taught language learners, Fluent Penguin picks up where Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone leave off. By exposing you to a wide variety of translated conversations in everyday situations, Fluent Penguin builds your vocabulary and intuitive recognition of grammar, sentence structure, and idiomatic phrases.
Modeled after the proven and effective Pimsleur method of language learning, Fluent Penguin conversational collections employ context-driven recall techniques to help you anchor new vocabulary and phrases to the situations in which you will use them. All lessons are in audio format and use subtle repetition and meaningful associations to maximize retention of new information.
Each collection consists of conversations about common topics, ranging from work scenarios to current events, leisure activities and travel. Each statement in a conversation is first narrated in English, then spoken by native voice actors in a variety of Mexican, European, Central, and Southern American Spanish accents. Time is provided after each statement for you to repeat aloud and hone your pronunciation.
Conversation lessons range from 30 to 50 minutes in length. The following conversational topics are introduced in Conversational Spanish: Intermediate Collection One:
How was your day?
I dreamed last night

Great listening and pronunciation practice
The book is divided into lessons so you can easily practice your Spanish during your commute.
I really enjoyed the dialogues. A variety of verb tenses are used during each dialogue. It's not for beginners, however if you have some knowledge this book will help it start to click for you. Conversational Spanish unlike many other audio books isn't based on travel scenarios, finding a bathroom, or ordering food, but rather conversations you might actually have or overhear someday with a colleague or new friend. I really hope they release a second one soon, so they can start on a third...
