Yes, the content is good and quickly paced. Ideal for a quick few weeks cramming before a trip to Spain.
However on this level 2 program, the male Spanish speaker is predominant, and to be honest, he mumbles terribly. There are some words and phrases, that no matter how many times I listen to it, I can't make out what he's saying or repeat it clearly.
yes, with the caveat that the mumbling will annoy them
There is a lot of Spanish in this course and the basics are really drilled in, in a similar way that FSI courses do. No pretence at magic leaarning like the picture-based courses
Don't understand question
This course is a usual addition to other courses, sits well with Michel Thomas & Pimsleur, and covers much more vocabulary that those two put together. The drills can be quite fast-paced, so really do drill the words in. I think most learners would have to go through this twice, because so much is crammed into the 8 hours
The native speaker speaks as he would normally but there is not always a break down of the words used.
There should be a word for word breakdown and the sentences should sometimes be spoken slower as well as normally as I found some sentences difficult to understand some of the wording
"Program really helps you become fluent in Spanish"
Great for fluency practice.
A good sequel to Power Spanish 1 Accelerated.
You can use these audio lessons in any increments you like, whatever is convenient for you.
Power Spanish 2 Accelerated – Really Helps You Become Fluent in Spanish.
Power Spanish 2 packs a LOT of material into its eight hours of lessons. If you have a basic knowledge of the Spanish language then Power Spanish 2 Accelerated will power your Spanish to a higher level. This program is not for the fluent in Spanish. The whole reason for the program is to help you to BECOME fluent in the Spanish language. I really think I got more than my money’s worth. Power Spanish 2 Accelerated is not just a re-hash of Power Spanish 1 Accelerated with a few new words and phrased thrown in. There is all kinds of vocabulary words covering all kinds of topics, like eating and drinking and having parties, and buying tickets to go to places and finding your way around places.
I really learned with the variety of instruction. Sometimes you remember and recall, then you directly participate with native Spanish speakers. Often you listen and repeat and at other times you just listen. You get some simple grammar instructions in some of the sections of the program. They are very short and deal with the lesson being given at that moment.
The lessons are somewhat structured but still spontaneous and the overall presentation is relaxed and informal. The narration has a very personal feel to it. It is not like some language learning recordings where the narration is done by deep-voiced, monotone, stiff and formal radio type of narrators. Mark Frobose, the developer of the program, serves as the narrator/teacher throughout all of it with different educated Spanish speakers. Like I said, it has a very personal feel to it. Mark and the speaker even laugh occasionally as they are explaining funny things. It really does sound like it is a private lesson between you and the native speakers and the narrator.
But it does move pretty quick. This program is excellent for someone who really wants to learn to speak Spanish fast.
"Extremely Well Conceived - Best on the Market"
Yes, I would definitely listen to Power Spanish 2 Accelerated again. Power Spanish taught me how to communicate quickly and effectively in Spanish using my own original thoughts and did so without boredom or tedium. Mark Frobose doesn't follow the herd with mindless and old language programs like Pimsleur and Spanish Like Crasy. Mark's Language Audiobooks approach makes it easy and fun to really learn to speak and understand a new language. It is obvious that this method makes all others pale in comparison. From basic review to advanced idiomatic expressions taught in a situational format, Power Spanish 2 (just like the original Power Spanish 1) exceeded all of my expectations.
Teaching me how to really speak Spanish.
I love the caring way he relates to the listeners while he teaches Spanish.
Yes, Mark managed to create the most effective language-learning program where one section built on the one before it. He also succeeded to make it easy for the listener to go back to the start of a lesson to repeat.
Pimsleur, Rosetta Stone and Coffeebreak Espanol could learn a great deal from Language Audiobooks and Mark's excellent voice and educated Spanish speakers. Mark's spontaneous and expert delivery and of original sentence making templates, memory techniques and humor make the language learning process a real joy.
"Makes You Nearly Fluent In Spanish"
Amazing program to learn high level Spanish. After successfully completing Power Spanish I, I really needing a program like this. I got it from Language Audiobooks went from being conversational to functionally fluent in Spanish in less time than you could imagine. It really worked for me. A different approach along with a good narrator makes new language learning so much easier. No guessing, full translation of words in English. I learned to communicate in Spanish with Spanish speakers wherever I go. Fast and easy way to learn Spanish! Great recall memory technique, great native speakers and enjoyable too. A great value for money program!
A must try for anyone serious about advancing to functional fluency in Spanish?
"Converse Spontaneously in Original Spanish"
Spontaneous and Flexible Learning
This is a great program, which completely follows up the fabulous – Power Spanish 1 Accelerated.
Can’t really do this all in one sitting. It’s designed to be used during waiting times, bit by bit.
Power Spanish 2 Accelerated is an awesome program to learn a more high level of Spanish. The narrator did an excellent job, narrates and converses with such an ease, explains the situations, the words meaning in English and what to say about the native Spanish speakers. They greatly compliment the narrator and add native accent and depth & tone. They go fast in the beginning, then slow, let you repeat, then again fast, which helped me to converse and understand different tenses in Spanish. A great learning program, easy to learn and spontaneous!
I have been learning Spanish from Mark Frobose audio books and this is my third one, and I learned even more than what I expected, really worth the money. But, this is a little higher version, must learn from Power Spanish 1 Accelerated first to go with the flow of this program. I learned to speak a lot of vocabulary words even more than previous courses, learned the different tenses, how to make your own conversational sentences while conversing with a Latin Spanish speaker from this program. I can’t recommend this program highly enough.
A really special language-learning atmosphere is created by the friendly narration in this program Excellent combination of seriousness and humorous tones, which makes learning great fun. It is the best I have ever used, you can learn to speak Spanish with such an ease and can also listen to this great program wherever you are and whenever you are free. Try it. I'm sure it will work for you like it did for me. I feel so happy that now I can converse in Spanish so fluently, all thanks goes Mark Frobose’s great narration and his trained native Spanish speakers from all over the Spanish-speaking world.
"I Really Love This Program"
Being of Hispanic origin, I wanted to learn and master the language of my parents' homeland.
Power Spanish 2 really taught me to speak and understand a lot of "real" down-to-earth Spanish that the native Spanish speakers use.
I especially loved all the expressions, just like the ones my family uses all the time that I never completely understood. When you say these to a native Spanish speaker, they're like .....
Caramba .... this girl really knows Spanish.
Also, all the vocabulary, teaching you how to put together sentences in the past, present, future.
Great program that is really teaching me a lot of intermediate Spanish. I use it every day to practice and I love it.
"Better Than Expected – Great Tapescript"
I loved Power Spanish 1 and moved on to Power Spanish 2. I was not disappointed. In fact, Power Spanish 2 was even better than I expected. More advanced than Power Spanish 1, and the same great technique. The tape script really helps too. Must buy.
"Mark Frobose does a great job of teaching Spanish"
Very effective, recommended.
At first I did not like Power Spanish 1 because it seemed to take too long to get past the introduction to the actual content, but after giving it more of a chance I'd have to say that it is very good also.
Mark Frobos has an excellent line of language instruction audio books. If you use them and stick with it you long-term you will learn to speak well. Learning a foreign language takes time no matter how you do it so be patient and keep listening and practicing.
"Excellent in Improving Spanish Fluency"
I am in the middle of Power Spanish 2 by Mark Frobose. Power Spanish 1 was so effective and enjoyable that I had to try level 2. Here are my observations:
1. Same great Spanish speakers and Mark Frobose interpreting and explaining it in English. Love this.
2. Power Spanish 2 ties up a lot of “loose ends”. It goes into detail with things like “to the” in four ways. Things I never knew existed in Spanish. And Mark gives lots of examples and practice, as usual, which is great.
3. The idiomatic expressions like “I got up on the wrong side of the bed” really bring Spanish to life. My girlfriend is Mexican, and every time I say this expression after I’m asked how I am, I get smiles and laughter from everyone in the room. The natives LOVE to hear you speak their expressions.
4. Great vocabulary building stuff. Why and because, and expressions with “to have” (tener) in detail with practice, practice and repetition. This has really helped me to retain and to use this material in actual live conversation.
Final comment. Great program. While not as stunningly brilliant as Power Spanish 1, Power Spanish 2 is a much needed rock solid step towards fluency in Spanish.
"Well Conceived – Great Sequel"
I loved Power Spanish 1 and now I find that Power Spanish 2 is just as great and is the perfect sequel to PS 1.
Power Spanish is a very well-thought out well-conceived system.
I started from scratch with Power Spanish 1 and it brought me to functional fluency, believe it or not.
Now Power Spanish 2 is taking me where PS 1 left off. Same great technique, Mark Frobose and the native Spanish speakers, etc …. Love it. A “Must Buy” if you’re really serious about speaking Spanish and not paying a fortune or suffering greatly to achieve that goal.
"Got more than I expected"
Used Power Spanish 1 and got a lot out of the program. I bought Power Spanish 2 looking for more of the same and got more than I expected. Really like the native expressions and have tried them out on several trips to Latin America with great success. Also liked the different tenses and the way they're presented with the memory technique coming back at you.
