Publisher's Summary

Possibly the most feared challenge to learning Spanish is the challenge of memory; there are just too many words and too many rules to remember. For every new word we learn, we seem to forget two old ones, and as a result, fluency can seem out of reach. 

According to Professor Elfrieda H. Hieber from the University of California, Berkeley, the 100 most frequent words account for about 50 percent of the words in a typical text and the 1000 most frequent words for about 70 percent. 

Therefore, it is evident that the first 1000 words of learning a language can provide you with an immense boost on your journey to master the language. 

In Mastering Spanish -2 In 1 - you’ll discover:

  • The seven most common contexts to instantly kick start your learning process (even if you barely know a word at the moment!)
  • The exact formula to use expressions, proverbs, and sayings like a native speaker
  • The latest scientific research about language learning combined with a practical guide you will not find on your average online learning website
  • How this guide can dramatically improve your skills while entertaining you at the same time (It doesn’t feel like work, but the results will amaze you)
  • The single best way to increase your reading and listening comprehension, and enable you to communicate with little or no grammar
  • How a simple grouping of thematic vocabulary lists can take tremendous fear from getting started and make everything suddenly seem 10 times easier
  • The absolute basic four areas of phrases you have to know to communicate in Spanish as quickly as possible (you might be missing out tremendously if you don’t know these!) and much, much more! 

Even if you have already tried everything else without success, the beginner friendly and systematic choice of words and phrases are based on both practical experience as a native speaker and the latest scientific research. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Thank you for creating this book.

Thank you for creating this book. It's a good book for those who are just starting out learning Spanish. This is a wonderful way to teach your child Spanish, even if you have no experience with a foreign language. Lessons are helpful and it really builds on itself.

We use this audiobook in my Spanish class.

We use this audiobook in my Spanish class. It's small and just feels "quick and easy." The vocab and sentence use is a good way to learn a language.

Very well explained.

I have bought several Spanish books in the past did and must say these books are different, they are a fun and easy way to learn and improve Spanish. Very well explained, entertaining way to learn a new language. I highly recommend you get several of these books. The stories are more mature with a more mature vocabulary.

This is a decent book to begin learning Spanish.

I have been endeavoring to learn Spanish for quite a while and utilizing streak cards for vocabulary which is alright yet the Interlinear thought is much better. This is a decent book to begin learning Spanish.

This is a quick audiobook and a great reference to refer to when trying to get around in a foreign country. Many of the most common terms and phrases (greetings, common questions, seasons, days of the week, numbers, etc) are broken down into easy to remember sections.

Love this audiobook!

An incredible system for speedy and viable correspondence. The Spanish-talking world is tremendous and differing. The commonplace vocabulary and highlight change generally relying upon the district, nation, and even city. Love this audiobook!

I enjoyed the structure of this guide. This makes it easy to refer back to when studying other sources and for memorization. As a novice linguist I feel this is a great tool to have when starting out that I'll use in the future as well.
