Reviews - What do customers think about All-In-One Spanish (Berlitz Self Study)?
It was okay Jul 24, 2007
This product contains Berlitz Spanish Guaranteed (Berlitz Guaranteed) and Berlitz Rush Hour Spanish (Berlitz Rush Hour), so I suggest you look at the product reviews on those. It also contains two CDs with travel phrases. You can read the entire script and listen to an audio sample at the BerlitzBooks website.
I do not recommend this product for anyone who hasn't done some Spanish study. I had three years of high school Spanish many years ago, but I had some trouble with this product. The native speakers speak quickly, and it's often difficult to understand what they said. You are supposed to repeat after the speakers, but the phrases given are often too long to remember accurately. The audio transcripts help, of course, if you are able to look at them while listening.
I borrowed this product from the library, and it was worth using for free. I'm glad I didn't buy it.
A good use of time spent on the road Jul 9, 2005
I changed jobs and my commute increased times 3. To make constructive use of this time on the road, I borrowed Spanish Guaranteed from my library. I really liked the set, and so I bought Spanish All-in-One. Spanish All in One provides a variety of instruction for learning Spanish. The first two disks of each part (there are three components) are fairly easy to learn. However, if you haven't mastered these easy ones, you will find it more difficult to understand the Spanish instruction in the subsequent ones.
The musical Spanish component is cute and corny. It doesn't bother me (as other reviewers have mentioned) and is a nice change from the basic drill. The scripts for each disk are free for download from the company's Web site, and I've found that to be useful for decoding some hard-to-understand phrases. I think this program is worth the price and would recommend it to people who are interested in learning conversational Spanish.
