Introducing nine captivating short stories to learn Spanish.
Are you bored of the traditional methods people tell you to use to learn Spanish? Are you bored of all those dusty grammar books that pile up, making everything look so hard? What if we told you there's a better, more enjoyable way to learn Spanish and grow your vocabulary exponentially? Well, guess what? There is! The best way to learn Spanish is by hearing short stories. The problem? You might feel like you don't know where to start, or you may feel lost trying to listen to whatever pops up on the Internet. And that's exactly why we created this book.
Short Stories + Foreign Language = Faster Learning
We know how difficult it may seem to learn a foreign language from scratch, let alone trying to put all that learning into practice. But what you might not realize is that it's fairly easy to fully incorporate the essentials of a language once you frame that learning into a certain context (for example, a short story). Short stories allow you to put what you've learned so far into practice, allowing you to expand your vocabulary quickly, make sense of ideas, understand new concepts, and overall get a better grasp of the Spanish language.
Short stories work because they eliminate the stress of forcing yourself to learn. Instead, when you hear the nine captivating short stories we've prepared for you, you will learn Spanish without even realizing you're learning it! Your goal is to simply focus on a single story at a time (they only a take few minutes to listen to). The stories consist of multiple genres, including adventure, fantasy, mystery, and romance, just to name a new. We wanted these stories to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on listening to find out what happens next. That's the very best way to learn, don't you think?

Absolutely pointless purchase. The point of the "book" is to have the audio and printed matter side by side so that you can follow the txt as you listen to it being read. However they don't provide the written txt, so its just like listening to a foreign radio station; pointless unless you have the written txt to follow and translate.
I enjoyed every single story which were really pleasant to listen as the narrating voice is very smooth and clear
"Pleasant presentation: ADVANCED beginner level"
This is NOT for a person who knows no Spanish. I've got 17% Duolingo level and had to listen at least 10 times before understanding the words. (I'm an adult learner, I've never spoken a foreign language, but have PhD). After I bought the hard copy, to help me recognize the sounds, I thought I'd be able to listen and enjoy...but this book is work!! Interesting and worth the effort, though.
I wasn't reading for character analysis, though the teenage infatuation of Marta, as well as Alberto's relationships with his mother and Marta, made a cute story.
The performance was expressive, with a gentle way about it. However I had to listen at 1/2 speed to get the words.
The book made me realize that, if this is beginning Spanish, I have a long way to go to achieve mastery!
Read this only AFTER you have basic Spanish skills.

I love the way they translate the difficult words used in the story. It made it more interesting to listen to listen to it. The stories were all fascinating! the narrator as well is so good as she delivers the short stories. 5stars!
She is so calm and her voice fits perfectly as she explained and translate the spanish words to english

"Easy to follow"
The short questionnaire/task at the end of each story are very helpful in making the lesson stick in the mind. The audio is great, it can be used on many devices and the instructions are easy to understand.

"Great for someone who learned Spanish in school"
Its really helpful to hear these stories in Spanish, and the way it's done with the annexes after each chapter is helpful too. I've listened to it 3 times and each time can hear a bit more.
"I had fun!"
I never thought that I could easily understand the stories! they were all well narrated and clear! I learned the proper way of pronouncing the words and right intonation.This is an effective way to learn Spanish language since you can hear it. Well done!
