I owe all of my pronunciation from this book. It is very helpful in that area. If you want to hope to simply blind somebody with your incredible Spanish speaking ability then this would be the book to fake it.

This is an excellent starting point for learning Spanish, but I would recommend to search for something with more of a grammatical approach as learning Spanish can be a tad bit overwhelming.

As your learning matures, move on to other books, and don't forget to find a buddy to speak with. Y

A good book to get started in learning Spanish. It is also a good book to keep for review, reference, and resources.

Own in paperback.

FS: "If you're familiar with the term "Latin Lover," you may not be surprised to know that Spanish is called a Romance language."

LS: "Learning Spanish is going exceedingly well."

If you were in a specific situation and wanted phrases to say there, this would be a good book. For actually learning the language, it kind of sucks.

Just not effective for me. It may work great for someone else though since we all learn differently.

As awesome as this book (and series) is, nothing compares to actual use when learning languages!
Changing my email/cell phone/Facebook to Spanish mode helped very much!
Ouais, j'essaie, en espérant l'Argentine l'année prochaine !
