Reviews - What do customers think about SPANISH in 10 minutes a day® with CD-ROM (10 Minutes a Day)?
Great beginner book! May 27, 2008
I used this book for a beginners Spanish class. It was an excellent resource. The professor reviewed each of the chapters of the book during class. I then studied at home with the CD-ROM, stickers (although some called this childish, it was very helpful), and flash cards. Excellent book for beginners!
Learn some phrases for a trip Apr 17, 2008
This is a great starting place for leaning a language. I work full time, so the 10 minutes a day structure is great. The CD Rom is ok and has some fun review games. It is pretty basic, so if you know any Spanish, this book may be too easy for you. The removable labels for around your house are a neat touch.
It's OK. Apr 15, 2008
This product is OK, but it is not how I learn. The book does not follow the CDs very well. Also, the writers make it a point to have Spanish speakers from different countries on the CDs, but the different accents make it difficult to understand some of the words. This makes it VERY difficult for me to get my own pronunciation right. The lessons on the CD are somewhat organized, but do not follow an incredibly logical pattern. Overall, this is an OK product, but not for me. The structure does not go with my learning style very well.
