I only have one complaints: The CD just reads off the text in Spanish line by line with no break. I am practicing my pronunciation. I do like how the book is organized by a situation you might use the words. I am never wondering when I might use a phrase or statement, like with duolingo: I am not a penguin.

I only have one complaints: The CD just reads off the text in Spanish line by line with no break. I am practicing my pronunciation. I do like how the book is organized by a situation you might use the words. I am never wondering when I might use a phrase or statement, like with duolingo: I am not a penguin. Each Chapter has its own area of focus like travel or politics and the vocabulary is very useful to learn.
I have not used the CD that came with it yet but I might when I get time. But even with out the CD, this is a great book in itself. I just got this book today and I love it! I especially love the fact that there are numerous example sentences to show how a word is used in context. I love how the CD pronounces the words and the example sentences in Spanish, perfect for practicing my listening while driving!. I was using Memrise to study Spanish vocab, it just goes through lists of words and definitions, which can be mind-numbing, and since I could not see how the words would be used in a sentence, the words just did not stick in my mind.
But This book is awesome! The audio is clear and the pronouciation is wonderful. You need to see the words in context to really learn! This is a really well thought-out book! Highly recommend!!! I am rather disappointed with this book. The layout is fine but the major problem I have is that the sentence structures are generally not accurate and the word choices are not accurate, especially for Latin American Spanish. Several of my Spanish speaking friends have looked at the book and said that they would not say or write things the way they are in the book.
Just Spanish. You have to sit with the book, which is extremely boring. The audio is just the right pace, so you can repeat after the native speaker, who speaks clearly and not too fast.
The occasional full sentences will remind you of some grammar, too. I find that reading pages at a time and then listening to the audio usually later, in the car is very effective.
The combination of the book and audio is a real bargain. Tons of vocabulary. I had studied 2 years of Spanish, so had the gist of the European languages from that. But, had never studied French at all, and thought it was beyond me. Just for the heck of it, I bought this and started listening to it and following along in the book after work for an hour or so times a week for a few months before a vacation to Paris.
I read a long billboard in the train station describing 2 Paris parks, I talked to a local to find Metro ligne quatre. I could get the gist of most signs. It was very enjoyable. This is a great learning resource. Terrible for those wanting to learn French. Too fast; too hard. I wanted to teach someone as I speak fluent French.
Love it. The audio portion is worth the purchase price.
