Publisher's Summary

Hablas español? You'll answer "si" in no time if you use this learning technique.

What's the best way to learn a foreign language? Most people would say that it's important to learn grammar and vocabulary. After all, this is how languages have been taught in Europe for many centuries.

However, modern linguistics and cognitive science prove traditional methods wrong. The most important learning strategy, according to great linguists, including Stephen Krashen, is providing a lot of so-called comprehensible input. This means, reading and listening to a lot of texts that are challenging but still more or less understandable. When you get a lot of such input, your mind figures out the grammar intuitively, just like it figured out the grammar of your first language.

This audiobook offers a collection of 17 short stories for beginners written in Spanish. The stories range from really easy, suitable for students who've just started learning Spanish, to somewhat more complex (there are three difficulty levels, in all). 

Listen to them when you've got some free time or in the car, and very soon, you'll notice that you speak Spanish without thinking about all that grammar, with the intuitive ease of a native speaker!

Here's what you'll find in this audiobook:

  • Fifteen short stories in Spanish, narrated in a beginner-friendly language
  • Two audio recordings of each story: one extra-slow so that you can understand every word and one at normal speed
  • Three difficulty levels so that you can choose stories that are perfect for your unique learning process
  • A variety of topics so that you won't get bored
  • Vocabulary lists after every story to make sure that you've understood every word

Listening to these stories is guaranteed to boost your Spanish skills, even if you tried other learning methods and weren't successful. After all, you did master your first language by listening to it a lot, right? 

Do you want to learn Spanish quickly and easily? Buy the audiobook now.

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

A audiobook that is designed to help improve your Spanish. The stories are basic but the vocabulary is at the right level for "improvers" and helps to expand the vocabulary and understanding of the required syntax.

Fantastic Audible

This is an engrossing listen and it gives you plenty of vocabulary to work on. For example, the first two paragraphs alone are packed with such words as: soleado, nubes, edad, calido, sonrisa etc.

Interesting stories

This Audible is GREAT. I'm definitely a beginner when it comes to Spanish and I'm also a visual learner. I love how the audiobook recording not only has the story, but a vocabulary list at the end. I also enjoyed testing myself with the quizzes about the story and saying my answers aloud for practice. It made it fun for me. I felt like I was actually getting it and learning. I definitely recommend this audiobook recording for those who want to learn Spanish in an easy and fun way.

Excellent tool for learning

I love ❤❤ the stories that they put together each of them, gives you a little more insight into the culture. I audiobook recording the stories many times until I feel comfortable with the vocabulary. Lately, I have started recording myself reading the stories to hear how my pronunciation is and if I can make flowing sentences.

Spanish Stories for Intermediates

Spanish Stories for Intermediates was a great way for me to strengthen my Spanish skills and, Spanish Stories for Intermediates was a great way for me to strengthen my Spanish skills and enjoy a few entertaining stories all the while. I especially enjoyed the free audio that is accompanied by the volumes. The audio allowed me to understand the pronunciation of some words better than just reading the vocabulary. Also, the glossary in the volumes really helped with quizzing myself on words that I would get stuck on. I would definitely recommend this if you are interested in learning Spanish while on the go or for learning Spanish in a different setting.

The stories are short and engaging. They include many common expressions that are needed for everyday conversations. The summary, vocabulary, and questions at the end of each story help me to internalize the language.
