Spanish in 10 Minutes a Day May 22, 2008
Great product to learn or review spanish quickly. My daughter decided to give it a try too. She had taken 3 years of French ;however, she enjoyed this approach much better. With the posted flash cards and seals we all learned some spanish without even trying.
I am thrilled with Spanish in 10 minutes a day Dec 31, 2007
I am so impressed with Spanish in 10 Minutes a Day. I am just beginning to learn Spanish and am taking classes at my place of work. The book and CD's have been very helpful. I like that the book has the Spanish word, the pronunciation and what it means in English. I also like, the different accents of the speakers on the CD's. I have recommended this to several people in my class.
Spanish in 10 Minutes a Day Dec 11, 2007
While the book is excellent (and was required for a conversational class I was taking at our local college), one definitely cannot learn the language from "scratch" in just 10 minutes a day. I subsequently ordered the companion DVD which has helped immeasurably with the pronunciation. Wish I had that from the beginning. I highly recommend the combination.
Great Product Sep 20, 2007
This product works well, slowly letting it the language sink into. It works words into your workbook readings, and encourages you to do your excercises. You really do have to have a good ten minutes dedicated to doing just that. I've had the cd on while doing housework or driving and without my full concentration it just doesn't work as well (this is kind of a 'no duh' statement, but thought I would emphasize it because I have trouble sitting still for ten minutes and repeating back to a cd, distractions keep creeping in like 'man, my mesa is dusty').
A great way to study Spanish Aug 31, 2007
My husband and I purchased this CD along with 2 copies of the book to use in the conversational Spanish class we took before traveling to Mexico. I highly recommend that they be purchased together, as they complement each other well. This product is really geared for people preparing to travel to a Spanish-speaking country and it covers all the "survival" situations you might expect to find yourself in -- restaurants, the Post Office, traveling by train or bus, etc. The CD uses native Spanish speakers from several different places who have somewhat different accents, which is helpful in learning what to expect people to actually sound like. I use the CDs in the car and it's a great way to use my commute time for something productive. They present the material at a reasonable pace with enough repetition to be effective but not so much that it gets boring. The book has flash cards and sticky labels that now adorn lots of common objects around our house. It seemed like a bit of a hokey idea at first, but it's really helpful to see "el lavabo" every time I go to the sink -- that sort of thing. I recommend this product wholeheartedly. I had almost no knowledge of Spanish when I started with this a couple of months ago and now feel like I can communicate, at least on a very basic level.
