Publisher's Summary

If you want to learn Spanish quickly and without getting bored, don't waste any more time. Keep reading...

After English, Spanish is the most popular language in the world, with over 35 countries and 600 million people speaking it. I would, therefore, say that choosing to learn it means making an intelligent choice. But learning a new language is not that easy and can be quite boring and tiring if you don't have the right tools to learn it. 

This is also why many people choose to travel and dive directly in the place. But it is not such a simple solution for everyone. It will seem like a misplaced question, but science helps you here. Do you know that we memorize and learn information more easily through stories? Because, our brain likes it. It has been so used to stories from an early age, with the tales they told us, cartoons we watched, etc. In this way, we are more inclined to learn. As a result, it is easier to learn and memorize a new language by reading and listening to stories.

Now, I don't want to influence you by saying that mine is the best book in circulation; you will be the judge. As you surely know, there are several books similar to this one for learning Spanish, but they are not really optimal or suitable for beginners for different reasons: complicated terms are used, they have too long stories with no parallel text in English, lack of vocabulary, grammatical errors, lack of techniques and suggestions, and other carelessness issues that you will not find in this book.

The audiobook is divided into two parts. 

Here is what you'll find inside:

  • Tips and techniques about learning languages and key insights into learning Spanish
  • The fundamentals of the Spanish language
  • Some of the most complex issues of the Spanish language
  • Verb conjugations in the present tense 
  • 25 dual language lessons in parallel text, broken down into verb tenses
  • Core vocabulary which can be used in multiple situation
  • The present simple tense with the verbs “ser” and “estar”
  • The various ways in which verbs can be conjugated
  • The present simple tense with regular verbs
  • And much more!

Even if you have never spoken or written in Spanish, there's no need to worry because this audiobook was designed specifically for people like you. In fact, by purchasing this book, you will have the big advantage that only this book offers - that it offers the parallel translation of the stories in English, which will definitively cancel any difficulty in understanding and memorizing the text that you might encounter by purchasing other books.

It is a very good book and helpful book.

I felt that this book was helpful when it came to learning the language. I think the parts that help me the most are the glossaries within each story that highlights key words and the section of each chapter that translates the entire story in sections. The set up is easy to follow and the stories aren't boring.

Impressive

I took in a great deal however the book would be progressively helpful without such a great amount of useless (to me) restorative phrasing.
