Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz Spanish Vocabulary Study Cards (Berlitz Study Cards) (Spanish Edition)?
No pronunciation guide May 18, 2008
As a beginner I need to learn, or be reminded of the proper pronunciation for each new word. No pronunciation help is provided; each card gives an english word on one side and the spanish word on the other, however, there is no pronuciaiton help provided on the cards. Regardless, the cards are still useful.
These are worth it Apr 1, 2008
I spent eleven weeks studying spanish in Guatemala and brought these cards along. I was very happy that I did, because both finding vocabulary and then making the actual flashcards is very inconvenient. These flashcards are the perfect size, durable and relevant (most of the words anyway). I highly recommend this product and hope that they make 1000 more vocabulary flashcards, because I've heard it said that if you know 3000 words in any language, you can understand 99.5% of what is being said!
