I have recently bought earworms Spanish Vols 1 and 2 and am extremely impressed with the results. I was never very good at languages at school so that has always put me off but I have found these to be a very easy way of learning. I commute for 2 hours a day and after just one week could recite whole sentences. My husband tested me on a weekly basis and after four weeks I was 80% accurate with the translations on the CD. I also had reason to contact earworms and their customer services is amazing. I am very impressed and I give earworms 10 out of 10
So far I have learnt more from my French ones than my Spanish ones and I have been to Spain more times than France but I learnt French at school.
It really helps to have the schoolkid knowledge and to work up from that. I will leave my spanish learning here and revisit this book.
I didn't feel the need to go on to the second book just yet.
Buy if you are about to go Spain and have no or very little knowledge of Spanish and like the idea of music and learning in a sort of slightly hypnotic way.
